    • A PowerPoint Tutorial
    • The PowerPoint Screen
      • Outline Pane Placeholder
      • Task Pane
      • Slides Pane
      • Notes Pane
      • View Buttons
    • Slide Layout
      • The slide layout task pane contains placeholders for objects, such as: clip art, Word Art, charts & text.
      • It’s a good idea to vary your slide layouts to make your show interesting.
      • You can also add text boxes to your slides.
      Add text boxes too!
    • Slide Designs
      • Design templates contain various colorful backgrounds, graphics & text colors and styles to apply to a presentation.
      • Using a design template creates a professional looking presentation (but they can be overused).
      • Or you can apply a different one to each slide.
    • Color Schemes
      • PowerPoint’s design templates each come with a set of pre-designed color schemes from which you can choose.
      • You can customize your color schemes by going to: edit color schemes at the bottom of the task pane
    • Slide Views
      • Slide sorter view (above) is good for re-arranging the order of your slides. In Normal view, you can access the Outline or Slides tab.
      • There are 3 slide views:
      • Normal
      • Slide Sorter
      • Slide Show
    • Using Outline View
      • The Outline Pane displays a presentation so you can see an overview & organize content easily.
      • It works just like Outline view in Word
      • Use tab to jump from placeholder to placeholder (and shift+tab to end).
    • Using PowerPoint with Word
      • You can open a Word outline in PowerPoint and everything in Level 1 of the Outline will be in the title area and Level 2 will be in the body section of the PowerPoint slide.
      • This can save time and help you focus on the CONTENT of your PowerPoint and not on the formatting.
    • Formatting the Slides
      • Formatting in PowerPoint is almost the same as Word
      • You can align the text in the placeholders
      • You can use bullets
      • Numbering
      • Change line spacing
      • You can change the background color of a slide without using a Design Template. You can go to Format / Background and “omit” the background from a slide design template that you chose.
      Together !!! You can group objects
    • Slide & Title Masters
      • The Slide Master is a template slide that contains colors, text, placeholders, and other items that appear on ALL slides in the same position.
      • Formatting changes that you make to individual slides will override the master settings.
      • The Title Master is a template for the Title slide layout only.
    • Specialty Items
      • Organizational Chart is an illustration to show the structure of an organization.
      • A Chart is a graph illustration of numbers, percentages or other data.
      • A Table is a structure for organizing data into rows and columns
      data Data Data Data Data Data
    • Preset Animation Schemes
      • PowerPoint supplies pre-set subtle, moderate and exciting animation schemes.
      • You can apply an animation effect to one slide or all the slides.
      • Many of these pre-set animation schemes also contain sounds.
    • Custom Animation
      • Use the Custom Animation task pane to set animation effects, direction, property, and speed for text in a slide.
      • You can apply a different animation to each item on the slide if you choose.
      • WARNING: Don’t over do it! Too many animations are distracting and take attention away from the content.
    • Transitions, Sounds & Advanced Slide Timings
      • Transitions are the visual effect used when one slide moves off the screen and another moves on,
      • Use can use sound files during a transition, when you click a button, from a CD track, or record a narration.
      • If you do not want to advance slides manually by mouse click, you can have the slides advance automatically – and you can customize the timings too.
    • Adding Music & Movies
      • When you add music, audio or sounds into a PowerPoint you have many options to play the sound automatically, when clicked, for how long and if it should loop or not.
      • The options are the same for movies or animated clip art.
    • Printing Options
      • You might want to print copies of your PowerPoint slides.
      • The options are print slides, handouts, notes pages or outline view.
      • You can even send your PowerPoint to Word for additional comments.
    • Thanks for watching!
