Creating Your Own Project
We will begin by creating a new flipchart in ActivStudio 3. We’ll learn how to change the background color of the pages, modify the tools available in the tool sets, and add resources to the ActivStudio Resource Library. We will add images and text to our pages from the Resource Library, as well as learn how to use the draw tools to create our own illustrations. We will learn how to add more pages, and also how to rearrange and delete pages, so that our story pages will be presented in the correct order. We will explore how to use some of the interactive tools, such as the window shade and the spotlight, that will help to make our presentation more engaging for our audience. We’ll learn how to export our flipchart as a PowerPoint presentation, and also how to import previously created PowerPoint presentations into ActivStudio. Finally, we’ll learn how to print our flipchart pages.
