PowerPoint to E-Learning Shootout
Most computer-based training starts with a storyboard and typically the
storyboard is first drafted by a Subject Matter Expert (SME). The SME
develops the content and hands that over to the ToolBook developer(s) who
then turn it into a computer/web-based training course.
But, how do you get
the content from the SME into ToolBook. That depends on what
the SME used to develop the content in the first place. Word and Powerpoint are the SME storyboard tools of choice although there
are more sophisticated storyboarding tools available. So back to
the question, how does the ToolBook developer get the content from the
storyboard into ToolBook. Most often it is good old copy, paste, copy,
paste, copy, paste. Yuk! Very time consuming not to mention the
opportunity for error and the need for double-proofing; once in the
storyboard and once in ToolBook.

I developed a PowerPoint to ToolBook converter tool for a customer
of mine (Resource Engineering) that takes their PowerPoint storyboards and
builds a ToolBook program from them. At their encouragement I have
developed a more generic off-the-shelf tool that other developers can use
