With all its powerful new features, PowerPoint 2010 lessens the need for many third-party applications. However, there are still times when you might want to take advantage of the advanced functionality of specialty software. This section covers a trio of options worth considering.

Camtasia Studio

Camtasia Studio (www.techsmith.com/camtasia.asp) is a complete recording, editing, and publishing solution that can convert your PowerPoint presentations to Flash, plus do much more.

The Camtasia Studio add-in for PowerPoint enables you to record your presentation directly in PowerPoint and publish it as a Flash movie (or in another format). You can also enhance your movie by editing the audio and video, inserting title clips, adding callouts and hotspots, and creating picture-in-picture recordings with video. Saving presentations in DVD format for playback on TV is another option.

If you want to create e-learning tutorials, Camtasia Studio also offers interactive quizzes and SCORM (Sharable Content Object Reference Model) compliance. Using PowerPoint with Camtasia is a popular way to create e-learning programs quickly, in an environment that’s familiar to any Microsoft Office user.

If you’re new to e-learning, some of its terminology might be unfamiliar to you. Most e-learning solutions are SCORM-compliant. This means that they meet the standards specified by SCORM for web-based e-learning systems. Many e-learning solutions, particularly those run by larger organizations, use a learning management system (LMS) to manage their e-learning content and delivery.


Figure 1 illustrates the use of Camtasia Studio in PowerPoint.

Articulate Rapid E-Learning Studio

Articulate Rapid E-Learning Studio (www.articulate.com) offers the following suite of e-learning applications that integrate with PowerPoint, each of which you can also purchase separately:

  • Articulate Presenter— Create e-learning courses in PowerPoint and convert them to Flash. Advanced features include animation support, voice synchronization, presenter videos, learning game and quiz integration, SCORM-compliance, LMS support, and more.

  • Articulate Quizmaker— Create custom Flash quizzes and surveys that integrate with Articulate Presenter and offer 21 different question types.

  • Engage— Engage your audience with interactive content including timelines, media tours, pyramids, guided images, glossaries, labeled graphics, and tabs.

  • Video Encoder— Convert videos to Flash video format and edit, crop, and format videos.

Another option is Articulate Online, an alternative to a complex LMS system, which provides online reporting and quiz/survey tracking.

Adobe Presenter

Adobe Presenter (www.adobe.com/products/presenter) enables you to create Flash multimedia presentations and on-demand and real-time e-learning courses from within the familiar PowerPoint environment. Then, you can extend your presentation with quizzes, surveys, and interactivity before converting to Flash for delivery. Presenter also integrates with Adobe Acrobat Connect Pro web conferencing software for a complete delivery solution. You can purchase Adobe Presenter on its own or as part of the Adobe eLearning Suite of applications.
