With the launch of the eLearning Brothers PowerPoint graphic library, your iSpring templates possibilities just went through the roof. One of the many new features is a new and improved capability to create stunning animated interactions in just 5 easy steps.
Step 1: Choose a PowerPoint Graphic
Starting with a pre-made PowerPoint Graphic, I’m going to show how easy it is to make a clickable animated process interaction.
Step 2: Plan the Interaction
The first step is plan out how your interaction will function and look. Identify what items will be clickable. Plan out animations and other effects that will be applied following a click. Also, ensure that your artwork is exactly how you want it, as we’ll be copying this slide to create the other slides.
Step 3: Add Hyperlink Buttons
The next step is to add buttons. To add buttons, just draw a shape over the items you want clickable. Note: Right click and select “Edit Points” to modify the shape to fit perfect over your graphics. Once all shapes are added, make them transparent. Add hyperlinks to the shapes so each shape navigates to a unique slide in your presentation.
Step 4: Create Pages
Once each button is clicked, you’ll need a landing page for it. Copy/Paste your artwork and buttons to each slide. Change the content as needed to reflect that page’s message. (Note: I like to move the clicked on shape a little to indicate what was clicked on.)
Step 5: Add Animations
The final step is to add in some cool animations. I always tend to go more subtle with my animations; they look more professional. I like to add a small animation to each shape that is clicked on, once again, to reinforce what was just clicked.
