No notes for slide
  • Before creating a PPT, instructors should go over the basic layout.
    This slide will be visible when users open the premade file. The word “Statement” is misspelled on the student version for spellchecking purposes.
  • Students’ second slide will be empty except for a text box that says “RESIZE ME.” They should practice resizing the text box, then they should delete that slide and add a new slide. Start the 2nd slide with this slide content.
  • Have student try different layouts
  • In this slide students should understand the process of selecting text, by using both the mouse to drag-highlight, and using the Ctrl-A function. Also the right-click formatting menu should be demo’d. Have students highlight and adjust text font, font color, and styles.
  • Have students experiment with bullet points and sub-bullet points…the 6 x 6 or 7 x 7 rule could be covered (see PPT design and copyright handout)
  • Have them save their file on the computer…explain the fact that Office 2003 is unable to open Office 2007 docs unless they are saved in a compatible version.
  • Have them choose a layout w/room or move text box. Then add Clip Art, move the pic, and adjust the size. Emphasize the multimedia aspects of PPT and the importance of avoiding text-heavy presentations.
  • Have them choose a layout w/room or move text box. Then add Picture, move the pic, and adjust the size. If desired the instructor oculd also cover copying and pasting images from the Internet.
  • Have students apply a theme to the slides, and experiment with colors and backgrounds. Emphasize that a properly designed PPT should look unified, i.e. the slides should be the same stylistically.
  • Students should apply an animation style to all slides.
  • Have them animate bullet points within the presentation- emphasize that if they do not select this option, all text in a slide will appear
  • This is the point where instructors should emphasize the design tips that are in the PPT design and copyright handout.
