Flying bullets were the height of fashion…in 1997! And yet they still persist in so much corporate learning both in the classroom and online. So why is this much-maligned presentation technique still so popular? Perhaps because training designers and developers aren’t quite sure what else to do. Many training designers and developers do not have a background in graphic design or information design.

This session presents a case study of an American Red Cross Disaster Services course moved from slides and slides of bullets to useful, engaging instructional animations. You’ll look at “before” and “after”slides that illustrate the transformation from text bullets to the instructional animations that led to an award-winning e-learning course. Whether you are creating training for the classroom, webinars, or self-paced e-learning, you’ll learn to turn some of the specific design techniques used in that transformation into techniques you can use yourself, even if you aren’t a graphic artist.
