In the previous lesson, you learned how to create the question slides. In this lesson, you'll work from the question slide to create the feedback slide.
If you're following along, I'm working in Lesson Files > Chapter_01 > Feedback_Start.pptx
Step 1: Duplicating the question slide
The feedback slide is nearly identical to the question slide. Because both slides are similar, you can save a few steps by first duplicating the question slide and then making the necessary changes.
To duplicate the slide, right-click the slide thumbnail and select Duplicate.
Step 2: Removing the next buttons
Learners navigate from question slides to feedback slides by making choices. To navigate from feedback to question slides, they click a continue button.
To remove the hyperlinks from the choices on feedback slides:
- Select the transparent next button over the choice buttons
- Press Backspace to delete them
Note: if you added three next buttons, make sure to delete all three shapes.
Step 3: Adding the visual feedback to choices
The slides don't change much from question to feedback, so it's important we emphasize those changes.
To apply the visual feedback:
- Select Choice C and go to Format > Recolor and select the green tint
- Insert the Icon_Correct.png and Icon_Incorrect.png icons on the slide
- Duplicate Icon_Incorrect.png one more time
- Place each icon in the bottom right corner of its corresponding choice
Step 4: Adding the written feedback
Things are looking good. Let's finish the feedback by bringing over the content from the storyboard.
- Go to Insert > Picture and select Feedback_Holder.png. This is a simple shape I created in PowerPoint and then saved as a .png file. You can create your own shape if you want to style it differently.
- Position the feedback holder below the Q1_StepImage.png
- In RSI_Storyboard.docx, copy the Question 1 feedback text
- Go to Insert > Text Box and drag out a text box over the feedback holder
- Paste the Question 1 feedback text into the text box
Now we need to make a few updates to the text to make it readable against the dark gray background.
- Select the text box and change the color to white or off-white
- Change the font to Trebuchet MS and change the size to 16
- Make the correct step bold and increase its size to 18
Step 5: Adding the continue button
One last change to make and we're essentially finished building the RSI framework.
The final step is to add the continue button. We thought a One Way sign would be an appropriate metaphor.
- Go to Insert > Picture and select Btn_Continue.png to insert it on the slide
- Position Btn_Continue.png in the bottom right corner of the slide
- Right-click the rectangle and select Hyperlink... from the menu
- In the Link to: column, select Place in This Document and select Next Slide
- Click OK
Step 6: Rename the slide titles
At this point it makes sense to go rename both slides. Even though the buttons are always linking to Next Slide, naming the slides something meaningful will help us identify the slide we want later on.
In the Outline menu, rename the question slide Q1 and the feedback slide Q1-Feedback
Well, that wraps up the slide development. In the next lesson you'll learn how to use the RSI model by duplicating and updating the question and feedback slides.
