Microsoft power point

  1. 1. WELCOME Prepared by Aswathy K.P Dept of Natural science St.xavier’s Training College For Women Thottakkatukara.
  3. 3. HISTORY  Originally designed for the Macintosh computer, the initial release was called "Presenter", developed by Thomas Rudkin and Dennis Austin of Forethought, Inc.[4] In 1987, it was renamed to "PowerPoint" due to problems with trademarks, the idea for the name coming from Robert Gaskins. In August of the same year, Forethought was bought by Microsoft for $14 million USD ($29.1 million in present-day terms), and became Microsoft's Graphics Business Unit, which continued to develop the software further. PowerPoint was officially launched on May 22, 1990, the same day that Microsoft released Windows 3.0.  PowerPoint introduced many new changes with the release of PowerPoint 97. It incorporated the Visual Basic for Applications(VBA) language, underlying all macro generation in Office 97.  PowerPoint 2000 (and the rest of the Office 2000 suite) introduced a clipboard that could hold multiple objects at once, and the Office Assistant was made less intrusive.  PowerPoint 2002 massively overhauled the animation engine, allowing users to create more advanced and custom animations.  PowerPoint 2011 makes it possible to remove image backgrounds, and provides additional special effects for pictures, such as 'Pencil effects'.  As of 2012, various versions of PowerPoint claim ~95% of the presentation software market share, with installations on at least 1 billion computers. Among presenters world-wide, this program is used at an estimated frequency of 350 times per second.
  4. 4. OPERATION  PowerPoint presentations consist of a number of individual pages or "slides". The "slide" analogy is a reference to the slide projector. Slides may contain text, graphics, sound, movies, and other objects, which may be arranged freely. The presentation can be printed, displayed live on a computer, or navigated through at the command of the presenter. For larger audiences the computer display is often projected using a video projector. Slides can also form the basis of webcasts.  PowerPoint provides three types of movements:  Entrance, emphasis, and exit of elements on a slide itself are controlled by what PowerPoint calls Custom Animations.  Transitions, on the other hand, are movements between slides. These can be animated in a variety of ways.  Custom animation can be used to create small story boards by animating pictures to enter, exit or move.  PowerPoint provides numerous features that offer flexibility and the ability to create a professional presentation. One of the features provides the ability to create a presentation that includes music which plays throughout the entire presentation or sound effects for particular slides.
  5. 5. POWERPOINT VIEWER  Microsoft Office PowerPoint Viewer is a program used to run presentations on computers that do not have PowerPoint installed. Office PowerPoint Viewer (or in PowerPoint 2007 and later, a link to a viewer download) is added by default to the same disk or network location that contains one or more presentations packaged by using the Package for CD feature.  PowerPoint Viewer is installed by default with a Microsoft Office 2003 installation for use with the Package for CD feature. The PowerPoint Viewer file is also available for download from the Microsoft Office Online Web site.  Presentations password-protected for opening or modifying can be opened by PowerPoint Viewer. The Package for CD feature allows packaging any password-protected file or setting a new password for all packaged presentations. PowerPoint Viewer prompts for a password if the file is open password-protected.  PowerPoint Viewer supports opening presentations created using PowerPoint 97 and later. In addition, it supports all file content except OLE objects and scripting. PowerPoint Viewer is currently only available for computers running on Microsoft Windows

  8. 8. TIPS TO BE COVERED  Outlines  Slide Structure  Fonts  Colour  Background  Graphs  Spelling and Grammar  Conclusions  Questions
  9. 9. Outline  Make your 1st or 2nd slide an outline of your presentation.  Follow the order of your outline for the rest of the presentation.  Only place main points on the outline slide.
  10. 10. Slide Structure – Good  Write in point form, not complete sentences.  Include 4-5 points per slide.  Avoid wordiness: use key words and phrases only.
  11. 11. Slide Structure - Bad  Do not use distracting animation.  Do not go overboard with the animation.  Be consistent with the animation that you use.

  13. 13. Fonts - Bad  If you use a small font, your audience won’t be able to read what you have written.  CAPITALIZE ONLY WHEN NECESSARY. IT IS DIFFICULT TO READ.  Don’t use a complicated font.
