Speaker Michael Cerantola
Mike Cerantola graduated with a degree in Publication Design and Management. He entered the eLearning world when Flash reigned supreme. With the gradual demise of Flash, Mike has spent years converting legacy content to content that is displayed in HTML5 browsers. Working with custom designs, rapid authoring tools, and audio/visual components, Mike has found solutions for challenges such as browser display inconsistencies and optimization for mobile data plans, all the while ensuring that the source documents are accessible for clients. It became clear to him that PowerPoint + Rapid Authoring Tool was the arsenal of choice to keep production costs low and eLearning profitable and interesting.

Turning Static PowerPoints Ιnto Engaging, Interactive Online Learning: A Comprehensive Approach

In the modern age, how do we keep our learners engaged? Listen in on our best practices for eLearning for HTML5 including how to chunk content, add interactivity, and create non-linear presentations. Learn how to reinforce your subject matter and keep your learners engaged by adding exploratory content such as pop-up boxes and glossaries. Got “Mobile” in mind? Making sure images, charts, and tables have a zoom-in feature is a great way to ensure your content gets across regardless of whether your learner is on a desktop, tablet, or smartphone.

After this webinar, you should have a better understanding of:

  1. Analyzing the content for eLearning output
  2. Separating content into smaller, manageable “chunks” suitable for eLearning
  3. How, why and when to add interactivity throughout a presentation
  4. Adding Trigger Animations throughout a presentation
  5. The importance and use of templates
  6. Best practices for today's modern learner.
How do we transfer existing content from the Classroom to Online? We will look at how we started with professor’s notes for class and in-class PowerPoint lecture, and came up with the 5 steps to make the WOW online course. It’s the step-by-step guide on how the live-class content is converted to be taught online with visuals, interactivities, and narrations. By the end of this webinar, you will have some takeaways to apply to your project.
