Get user to do a screen capture and paste image in to a new slide

Aug 18, 2016


I was wondering if anyone can help.

I am asking the user to answer some questions and it creates a diagram as they click on the responses (see image attached). I would like the user to capture the image with a save image button - preferably just the image not the entire slide. (I don't want to use a tool like snag-it or snipping tool, as the user may not have it) and then be able to paste the image onto the next slide for the user to reference while they do some more tasks.

This leaves me with 2 questions:

1. Is it possible to allow the user to take a screen capture/how?

2. How would the user paste the image onto the new slide?

I'd really appreciate any help.

Hi Cath!

I believe this is the first time that I've seen this question. I'm not sure of a way for you to have users doing this within the course.

I've seen other users mention note taking as a user activity, but not images.

Here are a couple of options:

User notes that they can print and email

Tutorial: Creating a dynamic printable workbook

Hopefully someone in the community will be able to pop in and assist with your design if they've worked on something similar or have some ideas.
