iSpring Suite Feature Tour

Learn more about the new capabilities iSpring opens up for creating effective e-courses

Flawless Support of PowerPoint Effects

iSpring Suite is seamlessly integrated with PowerPoint. It helps you turn a simple presentation into an e-course with tests, simulations, and other interactions, and carefully preserves all the PowerPoint effects.

It doesn’t matter what kind of text styles, transitions, or complex animations you use in PowerPoint — the final course will play exactly like you planned it.

189 of 199 animations

iSpring keeps intact all the PowerPoint animations, their combinations, direction, timing, and triggers.

Buttons and hyperlinks

All hyperlinks and internal navigation elements such as table of contents, footnotes, and glossary will work after conversion into an e-course.

Text styles, table styles, and SmartArt

All objects retain their size, position, style, color, and other formatting after the course is published.

48 transition effects

iSpring Suite supports all the PowerPoint transition effects, including complex 3D transitions.


Mobile Learning

You don’t need to do any extra work manually tweaking the course for different devices. When you publish your content with iSpring Suite, it plays equally perfectly on iOS, Android, and Windows Phone.

Adaptive player & content

Content, buttons, controls, and course panels adjust to the screen size; that’s why text and images look perfect on any device.

Gestures support

Learners can tap, swipe, or zoom elements when using their smartphones and tablets.

Preview mode

Use the Preview mode before publishing your course to check out how it’ll look on PCs, tablets, and smartphones.


Mobile app

iSpring Play, the free mobile app for iOS and Android, lets learners download content to their devices and study it at any time, even offline.

   

Tests for Learning, Assessment & Skills Practice

iSpring QuizMaker helps to create quizzes for learning, knowledge check, and skill building, as well as to carry out surveys to get feedback from learners.

14 question types

Perform accurate knowledge checks with versatile question types, from simple classics like multiple choice and matching to creative freeforms, hotspots, and word banks.

Drag-and-drop questions

Engage users in the learning and help them train their skills with drag-and-drop activities. Ask your learners to sort or place objects in a certain area, or put them in the right order. For instance, complete a course for merchandisers with the task to use a proper layout of goods in the store.

Test design

Use the visual editor to customize the quiz design. Just like in PowerPoint, you can easily adjust fonts, layout, and color schemes for questions, and add images, shapes, and text labels.

Detailed feedback

Provide feedback for correct and incorrect answers: you can configure it for each question or the whole test, or turn it off with just one click. Feel free to use images, formulas, and audio to explain the answer in detail.

Info slides

Enrich tests with slides containing extra info on the subject. You can add text, photos, and videos, or insert a whole article on the topic.

Testing rules customization

You can configure points and penalties, limit the number of attempts, and limit time to answer each question. Fine-tune testing rules and collect test results in your learning portal.

Collecting results

Enable quiz results to be automatically sent to an email or server, or configure JavaScript to forward the results to your learning management system. You can also customize the result email for learners. It’s up to you to send them only points scored or provide the detailed report with correct answers and comments on each question.

Scoring rules

Fine-tune scoring rules: set a general passing score or grant points for each question, give penalties for mistakes, and limit the number of attempts and time for passing tests.

Random question choice

If your test contains questions on different topics, you can structure the questions and combine them into groups. Set up a random choice of groups or questions from each group and shuffle them so that every learner takes a unique test.

Branching

Set up branching scenarios that depend on each learner’s answers. For example, forward the learner to a slide with additional information if the answer was incorrect; otherwise, go on with the next question.


Dialogue Simulations for Practicing Customer-Facing Scenarios

Use conversation simulations for sales trainings and practicing dealing with customers in various situations.

Branched scenarios

Each dialogue scene consists of a question and various possible replies. Create multiple endings that depend on each learner’s answers, and train their communication skills.

Collection of backgrounds and characters

Cherry-pick a character with the proper emotion and select a location that will match your learning scenario best. You can use the built-in collection or add your own images.

Dialogue voice-over

Add voice-overs to the character speech and fully simulate a real-life conversation.

Evaluation of simulation results

Award points for the right answers and exact penalties for mistakes. Learners will earn or lose points at each scene, and the final score will accurately indicate how they’ve mastered their communication skills.


Audio & Video Narration

Create an instructor presence in your e-course. Audio or video narration engages users in training and helps them digest learning content better.

Audio and video recording

You can record audio or video narration right in iSpring Suite and edit it in the built-in editor.

Synchronization with slides and animations

Add audio or video to the editor and synchronize it with slides and animations.

Audio/video editor

The built-in audio and video studio allows you to quickly edit recordings without using third-party software. You can cut out failed fragments, remove noise, or adjust the volume.


Screencasts & Video Tutorials

Record screencasts and talking-head videos to create engrossing video lessons. For instance, teach employees how to use a CRM or make a video tutorial on sales techniques.

Screencasts

Picture-in-picture screencasts

You can record video from your screen and webcam simultaneously to provide a screencast with live video comments. Show both videos at the same time or switch between them.

Visual hints

iSpring Suite detects when you use hotkeys, enter text, or click, and automatically adds tooltips for these actions to the screencast. You can easily show how to use software, explain the meaning of options and buttons, or teach the right order of actions.

Video courses

Interactive canvas just like PowerPoint slides

Now, you can add videos, images, text blocks, and shapes, and edit them on the canvas, just like in PowerPoint.

Title screens and annotations

Start a video course with a bright and compelling intro or add slides with highlights to any fragment of your video. You can use pre-made images or create annotations, graphs, and captions right in the video editor.

Multi-track timeline for audio and video

There’s an unlimited number of tracks, so you can add as many layers as you need. With iSpring Suite, you can merge videos from multiple tracks, add audio, and even show two videos at the same time.

Seamless transitions between scenes

Smooth out the transitions between videos, info slides, and photos. You can adjust transition effects to make the images ripple into videos, and videos smoothly flow back into images.


Interaction Templates for Effective Presentation

There are 13 interactions in iSpring Suite for use in a huge variety of training situations. For example, interactions will help you explain a recruitment process, sales funnel, or configuration of complex equipment.

13 ready-made templates

Turn your diagrams, instructions, and catalogues into interactive e-courses. Simply choose the template you need and add text and images.

Voice-overs for interactions

Add a voice-over and turn the interactive template into a live lesson. You can upload an audio file from your computer or record it right in iSpring Suite.

Color scheme adjustment

You can easily change the colors of any interactive elements: buttons, controls, shapes, and player to match your company’s brandbook.


Content Library for Rapid Course Creation

This is a huge collection of resources: templates for various learning situations, bright themes, characters, locations, icons, and buttons — everything you need for effective course creation.

Characters

The iSpring Suite Content Library includes a collection of characters of different ages, ethnicities, and occupations. Each character has up to 500 shots expressing different emotions from various angles. Just choose the character that fits your needs and paste into the course.

Slide templates

Choose a template from the collection, add your content, data, and images, and then change its color scheme to match your corporate style. Each template includes basic course elements: a title slide, a table of contents, chapters, a timeline, and info slides.

Locations and interior items

The iSpring Suite collection includes realistic backgrounds for different learning scenarios. There are photos of stores, offices, banks, hospitals, and classrooms. You can also find images of interior items, electronic devices, and office supplies.

Icons, buttons, and controls

There’s a collection of 643 icons and controls: buttons, switches, indicators, checkboxes, and more. All the controls have a cohesive design, so it’s easy to combine them.


Course Structure & Navigation

iSpring Suite has handy features for managing course structure and extra resources. You can specify presenters, restrict navigation, and configure branching.

Slide properties

You can set the duration of each slide, advance slides on click or automatically, add nesting levels, change the layout, and add a playlist.

Navigation and branching

Use branching to control users’ path in the course. For example, you can prevent learners from going back to the previous slides, or make their progress within the course depend on their actions.

Presentation resources

Add presenters’ info, your company’s logo, and links to extra resources to your presentation. You can also attach files on the topic of the course; e.g., instructions, articles, and videos.


Customizable Player

Make the player match your corporate style or the topic of the course. You can customize the player’s panels, pick a proper layout, and adjust colors, buttons, and text labels.

Universal player

Choose the layout that fits your course best. You can show only the slides, or use a built-in template, like a business presentation or online video lecture.

50/50 Video lecture player

Bring together the presentation and presenter video to create an impactful video lecture. Learners can easily change the ratio while watching, and choose to focus on either the course material or the instructor.


Publishing

iSpring Suite makes it quick to publish a course in web-friendly format and upload it to your website or learning system.

Publishing to HTML5

Publish courses in HTML5 format to make them available for studying from any screen: PC, laptop, tablet, or smartphone.
