How to Create an eLearning Presentation That Doesn’t Suck!

In this video I will cover several aspects of creating an eLearning presentation. We will cover everything from planning a presentation, creating a slide deck, recording your presentation and delivering your presentation. I hope that this video will help you create great eLearning presentations.

Remember, to follow the steps in creating the eLearning presentation.

  1. Plan – This is the most vital important step in the process
  2. Build Slide Deck – Be sure to use all the tips and tricks mentioned in the video when building out your slide deck.
  3. Record Slide Deck with Narration – This can be the fun part but be sure to practice the presentation so you don’t experience stage fright. Talking into a mic and recording into a camera will get easier in time as you continue to record more and more.
  4. Delivery – Make sure you use a platform in which you are comfortable with the security and cost of the hosting service.

When creating your presentation be sure to allow yourself plenty of time for each of the steps above. This is not something you want to conquer in a single day.

Here is a list of resources that I spoke about in the video.

    Building my content is no problem. Getting play from Amazon AWS, is where the problem really is.

      Hey Skip,
      Yes, Amazon AWS does have a little bit of a learning curve and it can be difficult to use at times. However, the cost along side the security AWS provides for your media is pretty awesome.
