1 Queensborough Computer Club Introduction to MS Power Point 10/14/06 – Part 2 ( Left Click to Continue )

2 How does Animation affect your Presentation? To see the effect of animation, I’m going to step thought these slides individually, without animation, by clicking on the thumbnails for each slide. Next, I’ll show these same slides as an automated slide show. Finally, I’ll go back and show you how I set this up.

3 Now we come to the tricky part. How do we add Animation? All of these subtle options start with: Click on Slide Design -> Slide Design - Animation Schemes And then Faded zoom To produce the display Effect that you Are seeing now Apply to selected slides: Subtle Appear Appear and dim Fade in all Fade in one by one Fade in and dim Faded wipe Faded zoom Brush on underline Dissolve in Flash bulb Highlights Random bars Wipe

4 One more Simple Animation but this time All of these subtle options start with: And then Click on Slide Design -> Slide Design - Animation Schemes Fade in and dim To produce the display Effect that you Are seeing now Apply to selected slides: Subtle Appear Appear and dim Fade in all Fade in one by one Fade in and dim Faded wipe Faded zoom Brush on underline Dissolve in Flash bulb Highlights Random bars Wipe

5 Now Moderate Animation but this time All of these Moderate options start with: Click on Slide Design -> Slide Design - Animation Schemes And then Ascend To produce the display Effect that you Are seeing now Moderate Ascend Descend Compress Elegant Rise up Show in reverse Spin Unfold Zoom Exciting Big title Bounce Credits Ellipse motion Float

6 Now another Moderate Animation with a bit more zip All of these Moderate options start with: Click on Slide Design -> Slide Design - Animation Schemes And then Rise Up To produce the display Effect that you Are seeing now Try the others on your own Moderate Ascend Descend Compress Elegant Rise up Show in reverse Spin Unfold Zoom Exciting Big title Bounce Credits Ellipse motion Float

7 Animation and The Law of Unintended Consequences Let’s look at the following three slides: The first slide display was before animation The next slide shows my first attempt at animation. Kind of cramped, though. The next slide shows the effect of animation AFTER reducing the font size from 24 to 18 and then adjusting the sizing outline box! Which is easier to read?

8 Ok, You now realize that PowerPoint may be useful. But what your really want to know is: How can I learn how to use PowerPoint? I’ve sat through many PowerPoint (PPT) Presentations and have observed many of my students use PPT displays. I’ve sat through two or three hours of training during the past seven years, yet this is my very first attempt at creating a PowerPoint presentation! Why not sooner? The previous training never took because no one explain why I was doing something. Nor did I even have a record. So, this presentation will focus on how I finally learned to use PPT, and if I can learn essentially from scratch, so can you.

9 Ok, You now realize that PowerPoint may be useful. But what you really want to know is: How can I learn how to use PowerPoint? I’ve sat through many PowerPoint (PPT) Presentations and have observed many of my students use PPT displays. I’ve had a few hours of training at various times during the past seven years. Yet, this is my very first attempt at creating a PowerPoint presentation! Why not sooner? The previous training never took because no one explain why I was doing something. Nor did I even have a record. So, this presentation will focus on how I finally learned to use PPT, and if I can learn essentially from scratch, so can you.

10 Ok, You now realize that PowerPoint may be useful. But what your really want to know is: How can I learn how to use PowerPoint?

11 OK, Now let’s see these first 10 slides as an Automated slide show. To set up and run a prepared slide show, we move the cursor to the second line on the top and click on Slide Show, and then click on View Show like so:

12 Ultimately Appearance is a matter of taste and experimentation. PowerPoint is a very powerful program. You can get respectable presentations with only a little bit of effort, or You can experiment and really produce a really impressive slide show!

13 This is all that we have planned for in this presentation. Effective Presentations require a lot of planning in advance, called storyboarding, but we weren’t sure how far we would get with this initial presentation to our club. I did not really show you how to do the editing of fonts – PowerPoint has its own way of selecting fonts - but you can probably figure this out your own. Nor did I show you how PowerPoint uses its clipboard. It, too, is different. Now the question is, where do we go from here?

14 Options If we have time now, and enough laptops with PowerPoint installed, you can work in small groups while Judith and I circulate around from one group to another, OR we can have volunteers come up to the video display machine. OR we can demonstrate some other editing features. Once you have had a chance to experiment and learn on your own, let us know whether you would like one or more additional presentations on PowerPoint. If so, when, as well as what you would like to see covered. Thank you.
