After creating, hosting and producing full animations, feature films, amusement park level edu programs, and full Online University curricula, why a section on Powerpoint? Simply stated, Powerpoint, with it's straightforward multi media integration capabilities, has rapidly become the starting tool of choice for many sophisticated courses at our clients. Many high tech content software programs begin with PPT conversion to Flash and other extensions! When you mix studio quality video, audio, titles, and numerous other inputs on $300,000 boards, this may seem curious! Our programmers regularly use MAYA and other $20,000 integrated software programs (Maya created Davy Jones in Pirates, Navi in Avatar, and much more), yet we always come back to Powerpoint!
Email us for the most reasonable prices in the industry for PPT creation, editing, integration and conversion! We'll even provide FREE consultation and inside scoops on the systems and software we use every day! AND (oops) a personal note about graphics below...
A Note on GRRRR... GRAPHICS!
Let's be really honest: most of our clients are REALLY smart in instructional design. Why not, most of them ARE ID's and have a background in education and training! However, they don't always have a background in graphics, animation or IT. Ok, hardly ever! We could have designed this whole site with 99% focus on some of the really high tech ID elements we've executed, from feedback and feed-forward loops in medical devices to the ID behind 777 flight simulators or portable monitoring devices.
Instead, we've proudly put a lot of emphasis on our graphics, video technology, broadcast and animation background. This is to reassure you that regardless of where your personal strengths and weaknesses are, we'll deliver a WORLD CLASS, award worthy course, from design to graphics, to everything in between. You know as a one time or lifetime student that slides with black on white, no music, and very little motion can put us to sleep quickly, regardless of how dynamic or well thought out the ideas! We're here to make sure that doesn't happen, and to make you look good to YOUR students and stakeholders!
On the other hand, a rockin visual presentation, with perfect ID, fails miserably if it takes an hour to load! That's where the IT piece comes in-- our knowledge of compression, flash and other online technologies assures that we're getting you the BEST, state of the art, HD quality presentations, without requiring teraflops of alienware processing to resolve and view the course!

Top question this month:"You mention SCORM and game programming. I know you're into edu games, but I'm not aware that SCORM has anything to do with gaming?"
Answer: Actually, SCORM, as a DOD (and particularly in complex learning and sim games, Department of the Navy) standard for warfare and other sim games, is all about gaming in some applications and environments. The SCORM folks are always trying to "push" the standard on industry because they believe in it (and despite Bill Clinton's wishes, it is not required outside of government contracts), and in real life, programs like Unity 3D (an engine-- you first need artists - rendering, then animation with Maya, Blender, 3Ds, etc., THEN you use Unity) do have "hooks" for SCORM. Note that the 4th generation (2004!) SCORM version is STILL NOT approved for "Wisconsin" validation!
A FINAL THOUGHT: Many successful people have one amazing thing in common-- they remember a single teacher who INSPIRED them. If one word can describe what our family of companies stands for, it's inspiration! Training and education that teaches is wonderful, but when it inspires-- it does so forever. Our technologies are here for just that-- to help you INSPIRE, as well as train and educate!
