PowerPoint is the ideal content creation tool for media-rich presentations and e-learning courses. Articulate Presenter is, of course, the best way to publish your finished product to the Web or your LMS. So what’s the missing ingredient here? Collaborative development.
Whether you’re the member of a marketing team working on the quarterly update for your VP, or a subject matter expert working with a designer, everyone needs a little help from a friend or colleague.
PowerPoint isn’t the best at handling collaborative content development, but Articulate Presenter allows you to leverage the built-in “Track Changes” feature of Word.
How? you ask. Simple. Use Articulate Presenter to publish your PowerPoint content to a Word Storyboard. You can publish the entire contents of your PowerPoint file (images, notes, etc.), or you can choose to publish only the notes. Here’s how to do it:
- Go to Articulate -> Publish.
- Select Word Document.
- Choose Word Storyboard or Word Notes.
- Complete the Publish Wizard as normal.
Once you’ve created your Word doc, you can email it around for input and ask your team to send the document back to you. Then it’s a matter of a simple cut ‘n paste job back into PowerPoint (for text), or incorporating any other feedback your team may have.
You’ll even see helpful details about slide duration and whether the slide is set to advance automatically or by user.
