Getting started

The PowerPoint file is typical of where most people start.  Your organization has some pre-existing content and wants to quickly convert it and get it online as an elearning course.  The goal in this stage is to clean it up and make it a better file for elearning.

If you're following along, I'm working in Lesson Files > Chapter 01 > Original_Presentation.pptx.

Reviewing the file

Let's take a closer look at the current presentation:

  • 12-slide PowerPoint using a standard Microsoft template
  • Heavy use of text on each slide
  • Leader notes and talking points are included in the Notes panel
  • Standard clip-art used on each slide
  • No animations
  • No audio or narration

What's next?

Overall, this is a fairly standard PowerPoint file used for classroom training. At this point, we're less concerened with editing the file as we are just getting something published and uploaded. And publishing is what you'll learn in the next lesson.
