Would you like to find out about easy ways to create engaging and interactive content in QMplus?

Hidden under the Interactive Content activity in QMplus are a wealth of tools to allow you to do just this. This activity has over 40 different types of interactive content that you can create including:

  • Course presentation – create an interactive slide deck
  • Interactive video – add interactivity to your video in the form of pop up text annotations and quizzing
  • Image hotspots – add hotspots to images revealing text, images or videos when clicked
  • Timeline – Create an interactive timeline with images, sound and video
  • …and many many more!

All of these activities are easy to set up and require no web design skills.

In this E-Learning Hour, we’ll show you a few of the things that are possible with these great tools and hopefully inspire you to give some of them a go.

Joining in online

If you can’t attend in person, you can join in online. To do this you will need to have headphones…or speakers and tolerant room mates. A microphone and webcam would also be useful but they aren’t necessary.

To join the session:

  • Go to the E-Learning Hour area on QMplus and enrol yourself on to it (you can do this anytime before the session…now for instance!)
  • Go to the section titled “June 4th : Easy ways to create interactive content”. The session will begin at 1pm however you will be able to join online from 12.45 to test your setup.
