From Articulate by Tom Kuhlmann
Here’s a free PowerPoint template I built for a recent workshop. I used it to show how to create interactive conversations in PowerPoint using hyperlinks. In this example it’s a simple back and forth conversation.
This free template could be used as a way to share manager/employee information or perhaps as an FAQ interaction. In either case it’s free for you to use as you wish.
Below is an example of the template in action. I mocked up a FAQ interaction on copyright laws. Click the character on the left to trigger the question. And click the character on the right to answer it.
How to Edit the Free PowerPoint Template
Here are a few production tips:
- These tutorials give you a very good overview of how to work with this free PowerPoint template.
- The template is made of two simple layouts which you can edit in the master slides.
- The characters have transparent boxes that link to the next slide. Edit these on the master slide. You can locate them using the selection pane.
- The progress indicator base is on the master slide. Those are the light gray circles. The darker and colored progress indicators are at the slide level to indicate progress on that slide.
Download the free PowerPoint template here. I also created a version of the template in Storyline, which you can download here. It’s a single slide and designed to easily update the question/answer text using variables. You can see it in action here.
Also, there are all sorts of free PowerPoint templates available in the community. They can be used for your online training courses.
