Major topics in this course include:
  • Custom Animation
  • Action Buttons
  • Hyperlinks
  • Record Narration

Please note that the sections on Custom Animations in this class are specific to PowerPoint 2003. They have been significantly improved upon since earlier versions of PowerPoint.

We will begin this class by learning about the different Animation Schemes in PowerPoint - how you can make the objects on your slides move around, appear, and disappear.

Animation Schemes are just the beginning. Next, we'll learn how to create custom animations for our slides. You'll learn about custom effects, entrances, emphasis, and exits.

Then, we'll learn how to create custom motion paths to specifically control where, when, and how fast our objects move around.

We'll next learn about animation timing and the Advanced Timeline tool which gives you even more control over your animation effects.

You'll learn how to animate the different elements of charts and graphs.

Now, you normally can't animate tables, but I'll show you two tricks to get around that shortcoming in PowerPoint.

Next we'll learn about Action Buttons. If you want to add a level of interactivity to your presentations - prehaps you want people to be able to browse your slideshow at a kiosk, you can add Action Buttons so they can move around between your slides, and even jump around to different web pages, documents, and other slideshows!

Next we'll look at Hyperlinks. You can actually make links within your slides - for example to have a summary slide where people can click to jump to the different slides in your show - or even link to web pages, Word documents, other files, etc.

Finally, we'll learn how to Record Narration for our slide shows. This allows you to speak into your microphone and have your voice "present" the slideshow for you. This is great if you wish to give an unattended presentation (at a trade show, for example) or even use it to prepare an online class for your students. I'll also show you how to edit your sound and microphone settings, audio quality, and insert random sounds into your slides.
