Course Development : Using PowerPoint

PowerPoint is probably the most common tool in use today for developing presentations including classroom training materials. And we often want to import these presentations into an LMS so that they can be viewed "on demand", and by staff in remote offices.

There's one main problem with doing this - the native PowerPoint file format (.ppt), and derivative formats such as .pps files, can only be viewed by people who have PowerPoint or the appropriate viewer installed on their computers and, in most organizations, this isn't part of the standard desktop image. So importing courses into an LMS will usually require converting the PowerPoint presentation into an intermediate format before import.

Here are 3 simple ways that PowerPoint presentations can be converted into LM-Light standard courses.

  1. Using a PDF file
  2. Using GIF or JPG images
  3. As HTML (a web page)
