Use your PowerPoint as a starting point for an eLearning course

67% of all new users of Easygenerator’s Free, Starter and Plus Plan are now people with no background in instructional design. Teachers, trainers, subject matter experts and people who are working in HR departments. Many of them were working in PowerPoint and want to move beyond that. This is the reason we now added a PowerPoint import to all editions of Easygenerator.

How do I import a PowerPoint

Well, it’s easy. When you are on the course page in Easygenerator, just click the ‘New Course’ button. You now have an option to start a course from scratch or to import a PowerPoint.

If you want to create a course out of a PowerPoint choose ‘PowerPoint import’. You can then select a PowerPoint from your local machine and upload it. The PowerPoint will be automatically converted into a course and each slide will be a page. Each slide will automatically contain all the text and the images from your presentation. It doesn’t import graphs and other PowerPoint specific elements, but we will add that feature later.

How do I create a course from a PowerPoint?

An e-learning course is very different than a presentation. So it’s just a quick starting point. Step one of course is to add your learning objectives, after that you need to add questions and rearrange your content. We recently created a course on how to design an e-learning course, it contains all the steps and instructions to get your e-learning to the next level and make your e-learning course more effective. Click here to start that course.
