  • Carol worked in some way with computer aided design. In her video she hints at what her company does, but I just do not grasp it.

  • Duplicate slide where Pat attempts to insert the Shockwave Flash video so it will play when viewing slideshow. I found instructions for Powerpoint 2007 at Instructions for Powerpoint 2003 at (basically the same, although different starting point) For the URL to insert in the Shockwave Control, I used As found by doing View Source when at the HTML page where one can view this video on the Web. Unlike the instructions referenced above, I found I had to leave the Playing setting in the Properties dialog box set to False, also had to leave the EmbedMovie setting at False in order for everything to work. (When I set these properties to True as per instructions, after I closed the Powepoint and then re-opened it, the video had disappeared.) To attempt duplication of info at bottom of original slide by Tina, I inserted a Text Box, used the Kristen Font and typed text you see. Made the Web site a clickable link. With the text box selected, I clicked on Drawing Tools (top center of ribbon) and then chose Textures and chose the green marble background you see. I also added a black line at top of video frame (otherwise the white of the video blends into the white background of slide which I didn’t think looked right). Note at where this video appears, one can download it as an MPEG4 or as a WMV file format – if one is a registered member of the site. I used DownloadHelper addon in Firefox to download as a WMV file. I made another copy of this slide show using the WMV (Windows Media Player format) file. But the resulting PowerPoint is only useful if you are playing if from a computer that has the WMV video on the computer as well. It is useless if uploaded to, etc. because the video will not play.
