Learning & Development
Recording in PowerPoint is an easy way to create content, but there are other options. If you use iSpring you can add interactive elements in PowerPoint too. If you use another course development platform such as Articulate, StoryLine or others, the recording you created in PPT could also be used as a module. Sometimes I use the audio from a PowerPoint recording and overlay other video clips or visuals. (I have used Lumen5 and CyberLink PowerDirector to create video modules). You can also use Zoom and Canva to record modules for courses and workplace training materials. Recording tutorials on my YouTube channel.
