Ever heard of iSpring Suite, the flagship authoring tool from iSpring Solutions? It’s a solution for eLearning authoring and publishing. It allows you to create courses in PowerPoint and overlay them with voice overs and video narrations, add interactive quizzes and surveys, and insert characters and rich media interactions.
Thanks to the support of combined Flash and HTML5 format, iSpring-created content can be viewed on all types of devices, including tablets and smartphones. You can also publish to the universally-compatible .mp4 video format, or even directly to YouTube to share with the world.
Let’s Dig In!
Let’s see how to create an e-Learning course with iSpring Suite.
After you install iSpring Suite, double-click on its icon on your desktop.
In the Quick Start window, you can choose whether to create a course, a quiz, or an interaction. If you would like to turn one of your existing PowerPoint presentations into an e-Learning course, click the Browse button.
The iSpring Toolbar
iSpring Suite simply adds a tab to the PowerPoint ribbon and provides instant access to all the advanced features for creating effective media-rich courses.
To add a quiz to your slides, simply click on the Quiz button and start creating quizzes and surveys with iSpring Quiz Maker.
Energize your content by adding characters: click Character on the iSpring Suite toolbar to choose from a variety of characters or add a custom one.
Enrich your course with dynamic interactions: click Interaction to open iSpring Visuals and create an online book, a FAQ, a glossary with search and navigation, or present the information in chronological sequence using the Timeline interaction. You can also easily include an interaction from the eLearning Brothers Template Library.
Publishing Your Course
Click Publish on the toolbar to convert the presentation.
Your course is ready! You can view it on PCs, laptops, tablets, and smartphones.
