In this article, I will share our experience of using Interactive pdf format to convert lengthy information (often boring information) into an effective learning aid that has an attractive visual format and is easy to navigate.
As an organization focusing on online learning solutions for over 15 years, our focus had primarily been on the online/blended training design and delivery.
In early 2013, we began Knowledge Audit of our customers’ intranet databases to ascertain the job aids that could support training initiatives being designed and developed by us.
During the course of the year, we extended our Knowledge Audit services to convert existing information into formats that would:
Additionally, you can add other supporting elements in the same document that step up its value further. These include:
Let me showcase the power and impact of using Interactive pdf through a Case study. (Most of you would relate to it as we often have “useful” but lengthy information that we need our learners to read with interest, internalize and apply..)

This is what the first deck looked like.
We first enhanced the visual punch of the document. This certainly improved the “engagement factor” but my deck still had a tedious, linear navigation (over 85 slides).
This is what the same frame looked like in the second deck.
We then looked at Interactive pdf format to present the mammoth 86 slides worth of information
Success finally! The linear 85 clicks changed to much shorter steps and gave each recipient the dynamic control they sought:
This is what the Interactive pdf home page looks like.
I hope this will provide pointers to all those who are looking at innovative ways to enhance performance support to learning. Last but not least, here is the url to the Interactive PDF.
