Microsoft PowerPoint Overview • Microsoft PowerPoint is one of the world’s leading presentation software available. • Microsoft PowerPoint is included in the Student Edition of Microsoft Office. • You can access PowerPoint for free by logging into your Microsoft Account and going to SkyDrive.
Microsoft PowerPoint • This presentation was created using Microsoft PowerPoint. It is not the most advanced presentation that exists. By using PowerPoint, you can animate your presentation, control and time your transitions, play a beautiful slideshow, and include fun and intriguing designs.
Home • This is what Microsoft PowerPoint will look like when you open it on your computer:
What should I do first? • Unlike Word, in PowerPoint, it is recommended that you make any formatting and style changes before you begin more than a few slides. When using PowerPoint, you typically want to choose a title and then click the Design tab.
Start Your Presentation • Start your presentation by choosing a title and then typing your name or a subtitle into the box below that. • Do not worry about the appeal of your presentation yet. That will come later. By the end of this tutorial, you will learn how to design a fast, fluid presentation.
The Design tab • As you can see, I have now chosen a Design or theme for this Presentation.
Choosing the right Transition • As you can see, the screen is darkened because it is in the middle of a transition. If you look at the Transitions menu, you can see that the Fade transition is selected.
As you can see, the title is being animated- if you look at the menu- you can see that it is bouncing in. You’ll be able to choose your own animations. Select what you would like to animate and then choose how you want to animate it.
What’s Next? • Now that my presentation has a design, has a transition and has an animation, we can now add content. • Note: You will have to repeat the Transitions and Animations options for everything you would like to do that for. Employers look for a consistent Transition when designing a presentation, so for the best outcome during a speech, only use one or two types of transitions. • Also note that clicking on a slide at the left side of the window and then hitting CTRL+A and then applying changes will automatically change all of the slides.
Your text • A lot of the features are similar to the features in Microsoft Word. You can change the font and the size of it like in Microsoft Word. The File, Home, and Insert pages are similar to what you may have seen before. However, some of the pages you see are unique to Microsoft PowerPoint.
Presenting your Presentation • When presenting your presentation: • Click or use the down or right arrow keys to advance to the next slide. • Be aware that animations are introduced in the order that they were applied. If you animate a square and then the word OF, the square will appear when you advance the presentation, and the word OF will appear next. • Click the Slide Show button to present your presentation. Or, click the icon next to the zoom slider in the right hand corner to present directly.
Presenting your PowerPoint • Typically, you will click From Beginning to start your presentation over in presentation mode. • If you want to start presenting from the slide that is selected in the menu, then click From Current Slide. • A number of other features are available.
More Advanced Features • Again, the best way to learn all the features of PowerPoint is to do it yourself. Customize and create an advanced presentation using PowerPoint software today!
