PowerPoint using Animation or Video—A How To. The old days: Static overheads, bad handwriting, scribbles for drawings, students waiting impatiently while you take forever to carefully thread the projector.

The old days: Static overheads, bad handwriting, scribbles for drawings, students waiting impatiently while you take forever to carefully thread the projector.
Then the initial PowerPoint breakthrough- and the the students waiting impatiently while you take forever to minimize PPT and carefully open a separate program to show a digital video….
Today: now it is more seemless; one click and the video starts playing…WHAT A RELIEF!
AND WE CAN MAKE OUR OWN ANIMATIONS to replace static overheads or slides
My FCQs scores have increasedin part due to incorporating animations & video in PowerPoint lectures. Clarity and increased student comprehension see data in, more details:http://www.lifescied.org/cgi/content/full/3/3/181?maxtoshow=&HITS=10&hits=10&RESULTFORMAT=&author1=Stith%2C+BJ&andorexactfulltext=and&searchid=1&FIRSTINDEX=0&sortspec=relevance&resourcetype=HWCIT
In front of very famous people, or faculty-eating students, you find that the talk you made on your office desktopwill not play the video when you use a laptop in the lecture hall.
Animation/movie files are automatically linked to your presentation but they are not embedded inside it like pictures or drawings.
To embed animation files: Use “Package for CD” under File menu to include all linked files. Also, a PowerPoint Viewer is included by default on the CD and will run the packaged presentations on another computer even if PowerPoint is not installed.
Note This feature was called Pack and Go in previous versions of PowerPoint.
Because of the value of the animation, the ease of development of gif animation, and the skills developed while teaching other students, some biology instructors have made development of a simple gif animation into a required exercise.Free trial of “Gif animator” by Ulead
3. The Standard: Macromedia\'s FLASH(http://www.macromedia.com/software/flash/) examples http://carbon.cudenver.edu/~bstith/cellcrawling.swfhttp://carbon.cudenver.edu/~bstith/fert%20wave.swf;
OR if animation file on your hard drive…
Don’t expect Hollywood quality; files are huge see Lorenzo’s Oil clip……You can test a movie to see if it will play in PPT- test with Windows Media Player. If the movie doesn\'t play, Windows Media Player gives you detailed error messages and a Help link that can help you troubleshoot the problem.
FLASH Animation shows motion….(developed after taking a couple of FLASH courses…but like a foreign language, if you don’t use it daily, the animation takes forever….)
3. From Devel. Biol: The Wnt Pathway:1.Extracellular ligand Wnt binding to its membrane receptor (frizzled) followed by activation of the receptor. 2. The receptor in turn activates (shown by →) the intracellular protein disheveled 3. which then inhibits (==|) glycogen synthase kinase 3 (GSK-3). 4. Once GSK-3 is inhibited, it can no longer induce the destruction of beta-catenin. OR (wow! I am using visual aid!!)- From Developmental Biology by Gilbert:Wnt → Frizzled → Disheveled ==|GSK-3 ==|Beta-catenin.Students this Wnt leads to inhibition of beta-catenin
Animations are not needed for all static illustrations…Animations do not produce miracles; but studies suggest an increase of 15-20% in correct answers on certain questions when animation was used(questions on topics involving motion, location within cell, multiple steps, etc) Are we all (in part) visual learners?
