“Stink No More!” – eLearning Deodorant
Are your courses stinky? Do you have boring PowerPoints? Try some “eLearning Deodorant” to stop the stink!
It doesn’t need to take a lot of time and money to create better courses. It just takes a bit of inspiration…not perspiration.
Here are some quick and easy tips to make your content pages more interesting. You can also see them in action at the end of this post.
Visually “tie” your main concept to separate components. Each one can appear individually or all at once.
Take your main topics and/or key points and put them in BIG TEXT. Have the text appear/fade throughout the slide. Let the learner focus on one thing at a time.
Just cover up your slide when you want to make an important statement. I use a 50% transparent box and then animate in my key point.
Why create boring lists? Is fairly quick to animate elements in separately.
Don’t tell the whole story at once. Cover the various parts of the slide and then only reveal the part that you’re talking about.
