You can participate from anywhere in the world with an Internet connection. Many of our students choose to stay home from work on these training days, some never even changing out of their slippers! Where applicable, students are able to speak with and hear from the instructor and other participants throughout the course as they work in real-time to complete activities.

Adding images and other assets

Controlling object and slide timing 

Make your project a dynamic and engaging experience by controlling and varying slide and object timings. 

Adding buttons

Add interactivity and enable self-paced learning by adding buttons your learners can use to control playback and navigate through your eLearning lesson.

It’s not eLearning until it is published in a form that your learners can consume. In this section you will learn three different ways to publish your lesson.

Great class (RoboHelp) - very detailed. Appreciate having the book in front of me as well. Love that William has each participant take turns sharing their screen to demo what he is explaining. He is extremely patient, flexible and easy to follow. Really learned a lot today, and I'm excited about jumping into more content tomorrow!
