Slide Deck Template Tutorial

September, 01 2022

Slide Decks afford importing PowerPoints, but Slide Decks can still be made without them. This tutorial will cover how to make Slide Decks with adaptive templates.

Let’s look at how to create a Slide Deck using the CoreAchieve Learning Management System.


To create a Slide Deck using one of the templates, first create a module. Then in the pop-up give section name, give it the section type of Slide Deck, give it a parent section, and press save.

Once that is done, the name of the section will appear under the navigator. Click on it and to the right of the navigator is the Slide Deck editing window.


To being creating your Slide Deck, click on the “Add Slide” button. In the drop-down menu, there are five different options—each with a descriptive name. Choose whichever one suits your plan. Note: the style of the slides (besides “Empty slide”) changes with your logo and brand colors!


After you have selected a layout for your slide, a slide with place holder text will appear. Any item surrounded by an orange dotted line is editable. Simply click within the bounds and an editing menu will appear.

Note: The editing window will appear different and have different options depending on predefined section it originated from. For example, the “Image…” section only has options pertaining to images. However, in text editors you can use whatever content you want.

Once you have your content set, the next thing to do is add optional audio or a slide delay at the bottom of the slide preview. Slide delay determines how long a learner must stay on that slide before moving to the next slide. Note: if you don’t want a slide delay, just enter 0.

All that’s left to do is save your slide and begin creating the next one. If you need to reorder the slides, simply just drag and drop them into their desired location. Afterwards, just press “Update slide ##” and CoreAchieve will automatically update the slide numbers.
