Case Study: Creating Rich Media Content Made Easy
RELATE is a leading professional media services company that specializes in creating compelling, interactive, and effective e-Learning content. The company’s president and founder, Rick Zanotti, has more than 30 years of experience in instructional design and multimedia. RELATE works with some of the world’s most recognizable brands, including Adobe, GE, Cisco, BMW, and Frito Lay.
Challenge: Finding a Bug-Free, PowerPoint-Based e-Learning Content Authoring Tool
RELATE creates e-Learning content using a variety of technologies, including Microsoft PowerPoint. There are e-Learning authoring tools on the market that are supposed to make converting PowerPoint-based content to an e-Learning platform simple, but Zanotti found that developing e-Learning content using complex PowerPoint presentations often required his team to develop workarounds for PowerPoint’s more advanced features.
On the recommendation of a customer, Zanotti and the RELATE development team tried iSpring Presenter, an advanced e-Learning development tool. After putting iSpring Presenter through its paces, Zanotti quickly concluded it was the best engineered product on the market.
“iSpring actually takes advantage of every single feature PowerPoint offers, no matter how complex the presentation is,” he said. “No one else does that. iSpring Presenter is amazingly bug-free – it’s by far the most competently engineered product on the market.”
Solution: A PowerPoint-Based e-Learning Authoring Tool That Really Works
As he became more familiar with iSpring Presenter’s capabilities, Zanotti was impressed by the product’s ability to handle all types of interactive media. With iSpring Presenter, course developers can easily include narration, add rich media elements and embed quizzes to gauge learner progress. Zanotti was also impressed by the support he received from the iSpring team, which continuously reviews emerging technology and incorporates new functions.
“We realized immediately that iSpring Presenter is an excellent tool, and once we got to know the iSpring team, we understood why they were able to produce such a solid product,” Zanotti recalls. “iSpring has an incredibly sharp engineering team, and they are very responsive, working closely with us to ensure we can take advantage of all of the product’s features.”
iSpring Presenter is SCORM compliant, meaning it’s technically compatible with other e-Learning programs, a key advantage in the training and development industry. The latest version of iSpring Presenter allows users like RELATE and its customers to easily publish content that works across all devices, including smartphones, tablets, laptops, and desktops. iSpring Presenter enables learning anytime, anywhere.
The Result: Happy Developers, Happy Customers
“One of the great things about iSpring Presenter is that you don’t have to be a web developer to create engaging, professional e-Learning courses to deliver online or via mobile devices,” Zanotti notes. “Many of our clients prefer to leverage all of PowerPoint’s capabilities, and with iSpring, we can use 100% of PowerPoint’s features without having to create workarounds to make up for product shortfalls. iSpring really stands out for its excellence in engineering.”
For the RELATE team, the advantages of using iSpring Presenter are clear: happy developers and happy customers. Superior engineering that facilitates the full use of PowerPoint features helps RELATE ensure customers have the training resources they need to build a better workforce.
iSpring Presenter is a single-source, PowerPoint-based solution that addresses desktop/laptop and mobile e-Learning content delivery needs across PC and Mac as well as Android and iOS tablets and smartphones.
