    3. 3. Topics• Basics of creating Powerpoint presentations. – Creating a new PPT, Adding slides – Views and zoom, Adding text , Color, font, size and styles – Bullets and numbering, Slide layout• Adding multimedia – Adding images and clipart, moving images to front and back. – Adding videos – Making diagrams and flowcharts, connecting objects, grouping objects – Giving 3D effect to shapes – Rotating and aligning objects• Animation – Animation in text and objects in slide – Animation in slide transition• Misc – Adding slide number – Copy paste slides across PPTs – Saving in different (read-only) formats (PPS, PDF)• Creating Content for special subjects – Mathematics – Electrical/electronics – Chemistry 3
