  1. 1. Microsoft ® Office PowerPoint ® Training Hyperlink basics MorningStar Education presents:
  2. 2. <ul><li>In this presentation, you’ll learn… </li></ul><ul><li>What hyperlinks are </li></ul><ul><li>What hyperlinks do </li></ul><ul><li>The different types of hyperlinks </li></ul><ul><li>How to insert a hyperlink in a PowerPoint ® presentation </li></ul>Overview: becoming familiar with hyperlinks
  3. 3. <ul><li>People use many different words when referring to hyperlinks: links , hotlinks , hypertext , or even jumps . Whichever name you use, there’s no question that hyperlinks are one of the things that make the Web unique. </li></ul>
  4. 4. “What is a hyperlink?” <ul><li>In computing, a hyperlink is a reference or navigation element in a document to another section of the same document or to another document that may be on or part of a (different) domain. </li></ul>
  5. 5. “Huh? English, please!” <ul><li>OK. Put simply, a hyperlink is an icon , graphic , or word in a file that, when clicked on with the mouse, automatically opens another file for viewing. </li></ul>?
  6. 6. “Can you show us an example?” <ul><li>Sure. The images to the right are all examples of commonly used hyperlinks: </li></ul><ul><li>Internet Explorer 7 shortcut </li></ul><ul><li>“ GO” button </li></ul><ul><li>Uniform Resource Locator (URL) </li></ul><ul><li>“ FORWARD” button </li></ul><ul><li>“ CLICK HERE” hypertext </li></ul><ul><li>In fact, just about any icon, image, graphic, picture, word, or text that gets you from one place to another can be a hyperlink. </li></ul>http://morningstareducation.com 1 2 3 4 5
  7. 7. “That’s clear. What is hypertext ?” <ul><li>“ Hypertext” is the basis for the Web. When you surf the Web with your Web browser, </li></ul><ul><li>the “http” that begins the URL displayed in your browser’s address bar or status bar </li></ul><ul><li>stands for “Hypertext Transfer Protocol,” and HTML, the language used for creating Web pages, is “Hypertext Markup Language.” </li></ul>
  8. 8. “Why is hypertext useful?” <ul><li>The whole idea of hypertext is that you don’t have to read it page by page, like a book. It contains “hyperlinks” that, when clicked, instantly transport you somewhere else—another point in the same document or Web page or another document or Web page. </li></ul>
  9. 9. “How does that work?” <ul><li>This like turning from your current page in a book to the notes or index at the back of the book, </li></ul><ul><li>or finding a page number in a table of contents and turning to that page, </li></ul><ul><li>except that the process is automated and instant. </li></ul>
  10. 10. “OK, we’re sold! Show us!” <ul><li>Inserting a hyperlink in PowerPoint is easy! Let’s assume you have a presentation open… </li></ul>
  11. 11. <ul><li>… and you want to insert a URL (web site address). </li></ul><ul><li>Just go to the web site, </li></ul><ul><li>and return to your presentation. </li></ul><ul><li>Then… </li></ul>
  12. 12. <ul><li>Right click in the area you want to insert the hyperlink… </li></ul><ul><li>then either click on “Insert  Hyperlink” on the toolbar or click on the little blue globe with the chain link underneath… </li></ul>Insert  Hyperlink
  13. 13. <ul><li>The “Insert Hyperlink” dialogue box will open. Click on the tab “Existing File or Web Page,” to the top left, </li></ul><ul><li>then “Browsed Pages” below and to the right. Any web pages you’ve visited on the Internet will appear in a list. </li></ul>
  14. 14. <ul><li>Just click to highlight and choose the web site you want to link – in this case, “Sharon G. Flake :: Home.” </li></ul><ul><li>The URL will appear in the “Address:” box… </li></ul>web site name URL
  15. 15. <ul><li>Just click “OK” and you’re done! </li></ul>
  16. 16. “Wow! That IS easy!” <ul><li>Would you like to see an actual example of a hyperlinked PowerPoint presentation? </li></ul>
