PDFs are everywhere, and forms are still one of the most popular PDF types. Whether you are creating a form from scratch or updating an existing one, I bet I can show you a few things you didn't know about PDF forms. This is the first in a series of articles that I'm planning on building and getting creative with PDF forms. Let's get started with the PDF form creation process. Creating a New PDF Form Regardless of which application you use to create the initial document, you can make it into a form in Adobe Acrobat. I use Adobe Illustrator to create my documents and then I save them as PDFs. We will review both those methods, but let's start with using Word to create the document. These are examples I will use throughout this article series: at the top, I simply typed my text in a Word document and exported it to PDF. Setting up a form in Microsoft Word To create a PDF with Word, you either print to PDF or import a Word document into Acrobat, (which automatically creates a PDF).

Where Learning, Technology, and Marketing Meet If you work for a membership organization, we need your help. We’re launching the survey that will form the basis for our upcoming white paper on the use of social technologies for learning among associations, due out in June. The purpose is to better understand how associations are and aren’t using social technologies (blogs, wikis, networking sites, etc.) to deliver learning products and services. Your participation is very important—even if you do not currently use or plan to use social technologies as part of your learning products or services and regardless of the size or budget of your association.

Essential PowerPoint Features That really is a great resource! Sorry i missed the input stage. For what it's worth, my current favourite is cut, right click paste special, image. When we convert slides with tonnes of text (public companies with safe harbor / disclaimer statements of 30 lines of 6pt text) it [rightly] takes ages for Articulate to render through each of the characters. So converting the slide to an image greatly accelerated the conversion process. Before being taught the above tip at [plug] we would shift f5, alt print screen, escape, paste, format pic, crop, resize..... With the above tip it is now just ctrl-a(ll), ctl-x, right click paste image. This might not sound like such a big deal, but when you are processing a 50 presentations a day at a conference with similar slides, you work out the time saving! Cheers Rob

Instructional Design and Development Blog The Learning Circuits Blog David's Blog View the e-learning game I know there are a lot of folks in the community who are looking to build games in Storyline, or who just want to know more about using games in e-learning. If either sounds like you, then you’ll love this week’s challenge. This week we’re going to look at transforming a quiz into a simple e-learning game. In reality, these types of games are more like glorified progress meters than high-production games. Choose a game theme What type of game do you want? Backgrounds create context Once you’ve found a theme, the next step is to head over to your favorite stock photo site for some background graphics that match your theme. Select the style of game How do you want your learners to move through the game? Linear: Learners follow a path of challenge questions. Non-linear: Learners move through the game by choosing one of the markers or buttons placed around the game board. Building the quiz Single slide Everything is built on a single slide.
