Interactive Self-Paced Learning Modules using PowerPoint

Blog article by Kym Schutz, Educational Technologist

Did you know that most of the features available in Storyline can be done in PowerPoint?

Academics have been looking for ways to create self-paced modules using a tool that is easier to access, edit and share with others than more complex software such as Articulate Storyline. PowerPoint provides most of the features academics have asked for.

Recent enhancements to PowerPoint make it easier to add audio, multiple choice quizzes and to embed a menu that links to each of the topics in presentation. We have made it easier for you to quickly create interactive presentations, by setting up a PowerPoint page in the MyUni Learning Centre. There are Self-Paced Module templates with a detailed guide on how to modify these to include different content types, multiple choice quizzes and the embedded menu on the master slide.

The PowerPoint quizzes are ideal for quick self-checks and creating interactivity that can assist learner understanding, particularly in longer presentations. Below is an example of a question that requires the learner to select three correct choices before they can continue.
