How to Insert a YouTube Video into Slidepoint

Here is a tutorial (created using Slidepoint) that shows you how to insert a YouTube video into a Slidepoint presentation:



What is SlidePoint? In short, SlidePoint enables you to visually create and assemble visually stunning, flash-like e-learning presentations, complete with images, text, video, narrations, and even animation effects – all online, and the end result does not require flash! You can, of course, integrate flash videos if you wish (as well as YouTube videos). You can use Slidepoint in your Weblearning LMS system, or as a stand-alone service here.

SlidePoint App for Weblearning is Like PowerPoint Online

Our most ambitious Weblearning LMS plugin, over 2 years in development, the SlidePoint Online Presentation software for Weblearning is finally available.

Currently, it is available solely as a plug-in for our Weblearning LMS/E-Learning System, but work is already underway for a stand-alone cloud-based version (will be hosted on www.slidepoint.net).

So What is SlidePoint?

In short, SlidePoint enables you to visually create and assemble visually stunning, flash-like e-learning presentations, complete with images, text, video, narrations, and even animation effects – all online, and the end result does not require flash (in other words, works on mobile phones and tablets, including iPad)! You can, of course, integrate flash videos if you wish (as well as YouTube videos).

Creating interactive e-learning presentations, slideshows, training tutorials, and marketing slideshows is easy with SlidePoint.

Will have some more examples soon, but for now, here are a few SlidePoints: Sample1, Sample2

Use PowerPoint Backgrounds in SlidePoint

Now that we have released the SlidePoint Online Presentation software for Weblearning, many of you want to use your PowerPoint backgrounds in your SlidePoint Presentations.

So, although I am not an expert at creating great e-learning presentations, I put one together using SlidePoint - which shows you how to get your PowerPoint backgrounds into SlidePoint so you can use them as a Presentation skin (while showing a bit of what can be done using SlidePoint).

To Do or Not To Do … Should an Educator Blog?

960692_93021290.jpgTo blog…or not to blog?  As the title suggests it poses quite the perplexing question.  After all, as educators our blogs have the potential to both affect our students as well as offer them a type of behind the scenes glimpse into our minds.

But is that a good thing?

Do we really want to open ourselves up to that type of scrutiny and, in doing so, invite the dialogue that comes hand-in-hand with any type of public forum?

I think so.

In fact, I think that being an educator makes the reasons to blog more important, more interesting and even more compelling.  It allows us to express ideas and open conversations that wouldn’t be possible otherwise.  It allows us to share our voice.  Now, let’s talk about why we should…..

SlidePoint for Weblearning LMS To Be Released

We are just about ready to release our newest plug-in for the Weblearning LMS – called SlidePoint.

The best way to describe it is this – it’s like an online version of PowerPoint geared specifically towards e-learning.

In short, SlidePoint enables you to visually create and assemble visually stunning, flash-like e-learning presentations, complete with images, text, video, narrations, and even animation effects – all online, and the end result does not require flash! You can, of course, integrate flash videos if you wish (as well as YouTube videos).

Another cool benefit is – your presentations will also run on mobile devices.

Here is a screen shot of the SlidePoint Editor:

We expect SlidePoint to be available in the next several weeks. In the meantime, here is a sample presentation I created with the (internal) beta version of SlidePoint – not the greatest presentation ever created, but a light sampling of some stuff you can do (and as it’s being delivered outside of a course, the save/exit button doesn’t function):



Here is another sample presentation
..that demonstrates a custom button bar, as well as the ability to resize and scale the presentation like you can with videos (even though it is not a video): http://bit.ly/rrCVXq



..and this sample presentation talks about some advanced animations like rotate, skew and scale – and does so while advancing automatically from slide to slide (like a video): http://bit.ly/nsocRu
