The Rapid E-Learning Blog - free PowerPoint template and 100 free PowerPoint tutorials

With as many PowerPoint questions that I get, it’s a good thing that over the past year or so the elearning community has created about 300 PowerPoint tutorials.  For this post, I decided to pull a bunch of them together so that you have them in one easy list.

I also included a free PowerPoint elearning template to celebrate the holidays and a great 2010!

100+ PowerPoint Tutorials

If you want to learn more about using PowerPoint or building rapid elearning courses, this list is a good place to start.  Even if you can’t use a tutorial right now, going through one is still a good way to learn about PowerPoint.  The key is to do more than watch the tutorials.  Instead, practice what you learned and then try to apply it to a real project.

I loosely organized the tutorials by topic so they’re a little easier to scan. 


PowerPoint for Rapid E-Learning


PowerPoint Tips for Graphic Design


Create Illustrations & Objects in PowerPoint


Animation Tips & Tricks in PowerPoint


How to Use PowerPoint Tutorials

PowerPoint Resources

People to follow on Screenr

There are many people on Screenr who create useful PowerPoint and rapid elearning tutorials.  Here’s a list of some of the ones I follow.  You can use the RSS feed on their page to follow them in a feed reader so that you’re up to date on what they do.

Another idea is to use a service like Diigo to bookmark the tutorials you like.  This way they’re really easy to find.

As you can see, there are lots of free tutorials and resources to help you learn more about PowerPoint.  All it takes is a little bit practice and you’ll be a PowerPoint pro in no time.

I hope you have a Happy New Year!


Tidbits

Here are a few upcoming events where I’ll be speaking:

In addition to that, I’m working to set up some informal Articulate jam sessions in San Diego and Phoenix, while I’m in town.  More details to follow.  If you’re interested in either, contact me and I’ll let you know when I get more details.

Thanks Santa Tom! This is just what our team asked for Christmas. It is great to have a one stop resource to a plethora of timely topics. You always seem to know just what we are looking for. Keep up the great work! Happy New Year.

Imagine a Saturday drop in class to e-learn e-learning. That’s what you have here! Thanks to your willingness to share content more of us can aspire to contribute at this level. Brilliant. Thanks.

About “Use hidden slides as a working canvas”, this can play havoc with some LMSs.

We had a situation where our LMS could not record a completion for the learner. After much hair pulling, we found the cause to be a hidden slide. Not a slide hidden from Articulate’s navigation, but hidden in Powerpoint as explained in the Screenr.

So if you use this in development – and it is a very helpful practice to have a blank slide free of slide master elements – be sure to delete it prior to your final pubishing in Articulate.

This is a good site, because as an educator I am always looking for new ways to invigorate my students. I commend you for the tools and ideas that you have posted. It is not easy trying to keep a student’s attention with just lectures, PPTs and classroom conversations. We have to find new ways to keep them engaged, especially when we do not have enough technological equipment for each student at the same time.

Thanks Tom for the list of tutorials. I am not really that knowledgeable in Powerpoint because my previous work did not require making presentations.

But now that I am trying to produce tutorial videos using bulletpoints, it is a must to learn these techniques to upgrade the quality of my future presentations on screen.

Thank you very much Tom for this gift.
I take the opportunity to wish you a wonderful 2011.

Best regards,
Tri Huê
