If you think that I’m going to share or introduce you to a new tool which creates innovative and jazzy templates for your eLearning modules, then you should not miss reading this post.
This tool we all use on a daily basis, its a integral part of our eLearning modules. Some of us use it as a platform for publishing elearning course and many of us use it for content and visual presentation…ok any guesses ? yes I know its enough of suspense now, so I’m unfolding the mystery.
The tool what I’m talking about is widely used and famous and its known as “Microsoft PowerPoint”, yes you read it right, I can imagine that right now you have a surprised or astonished feeling, but yes you can create great visually stunning templates just like “Keynote”. And if you want to spice and jazz up you template more, then you can opt for Adobe Photo shop to add some more magic to your template.
Creating designs and styles in templates depends on your thought and ideation process that want you want create, I know when we think of PowerPoint templates you get a picture of boring, dull and flat colored templates, but believe me its got nothing to do with PowerPoint, but it depends more on our skillets and how we utilize PowerPoint features. Its how we use built in features from Auto shapes to Colour Box and from Character map to Font styles to create templates which catch your user attention.
Recently I have been creating many templates for our client’s eLearning modules, every template is different from each other based on the scope and nature of training content. In all these templates I have used various elements from “Character map” Font styles, Color combination and Auto shape.
My next series of posts will talk about the above features in detail.
Please share your comments and queries if any and please follow my posts for more ideas and examples, I’m sure you wont be disappointed !
Thanks for reading.
