Objective The objective of this Power Point is toteach user’s the basics of MicrosoftPower Point. This will lead into user’s making theirown slides on the RTC’s evacuationprocedures, with an example of what itmay look like.
What will be covered In this presentation we will cover thefollowing: Creating a new Power Point presentation Changing the theme of a presentation Adding text to slides Adding slides to a presentation Adding images to a presentation Animating the transition between slides Creating a slide show for presentation
Creating a Power PointPresentation To start off we must open Power Point. This is normally done by click the start buttonon the lower left bottom of the screen. Once this is done a window will pop-up and onthat window there will be a bar that saysprograms After clicking programs a list of folders willappear, one of them being Microsoft Office Clicking that folder will open a fewprograms, one of them being Microsoft PowerPoint
Start Button, while different withother versions of windows, the startbutton is always located here
Creating a Power PointPresentation Normally after opening power point a newpresentation will be opened. However should you need to make a new onethis is how it is done: Locate the File button towards the upper rightof the screen and click it Once the File tab is clicked there will be aribbon to the left labeled NEW. Once clicked a icon labeled BlankPresentation will appear, double click on thatand you will have made a new Presentation.
Creating a Power PointPresentation After creating your first presentation youshould have a screen such as this:
Changing the Theme Next topic we will cover is how tochange the theme of your Power Point. Without a theme a presentation isdull, and can pull the audience awayfrom said presentation. To do this we need to click the designtab at the top.
Changing the Theme There is no right or wrong when it comes tothemes, its all about personal preferenceand what flows with your presentation
Changing the Theme As the last slide showed, there are manythemes for users to choose from. One thing to be noted however is thateach theme is unique, and changes theformat and layout of your slides. Despite this however, you can rearrangethe format of your slides. It just takes a little practice while you aretrying to get comfortable with PowerPoint.
Adding texts to slides As I’ve said before this is what your firstpresentation should look like:
Adding text to slides As the previous slide showed, therewere two grey boxes. To add text to a slide it is as simple asmoving your mouse anywhere insidethat box, clicking, then typing.
Adding Slides No presentation can be done with justone slide. Next I will explain how to create moreslides and the type of slides there are. First you need to make sure that you areunder the home tab, which is locatedtowards the top left of Power Point, rightnext to the file tab.
Adding Slides Once you are under the home tab youwill notice that there is a button that saysNew Slide.
Adding Slides Once you have located the new slidebutton click the little arrow next to it. Itbrings down a drop down box.
Adding Slides Now with Microsoft Power Point you havemany options. Each slide choice has its own set-up, butfor now the main focus should be on the“title slides” and “title and content slides” These are the two slides you will be usingthe most with Power Point. After the drop down box appears simplyclicking one of the choices will create anew slide.
Adding Pictures Next I would like to direct your attentionto the insert tab
Adding Pictures The insert tab has many wonderfulfeatures for adding pictures and clip art. To add pictures you simple press thepictures button while under the Inserttab. A window will then pop-up directing youto locate what picture you would like. Power Point also comes with its ownart, called Clip art which has its ownsearch.
Animating Transitions Transitions are effects that you canapply to the exit and enter of each slidein your presentation. Like the themes there are manytransitions to choose from and it is up tothe user to find one he/she likes. To access these, click the animationtab, then click the slide you want to addan animation to, then click the addanimation button
Animating TransitionsAdding Animation Transitions simple givesyour power point a cleaner look to it
Creating a Slide Show Now that we have covered the basics itstime to save our work. Once again go tothe home tab.
Creating a Slide Show Once you have clicked Save As awindow will pop-up looking like this:
Creating a Slide Show Once this windows pops up it isimportant for you to make sure thatunder the field where it says Save Typeas is Power Point Show. If not there is a drop down box that willgive you choices. You can name your file as well anchoose where to put it!
