2 Use of Interactivity in Powerpoint Unit 85 – 5/5/2014 Lecture

3 Inactive Features - Animation & Sound Media Multimedia refers to content or a product that uses a combination of different forms of content. This contrasts with media that use only rudimentary computer displays such as text-only or traditional forms of printed or hand-produced material. Multimedia includes a combination of text, audio, still images, animation, video, or interactivity content forms.content formstextaudiostill imagesanimationvideointeractivity Interactivity refers to a set features that are either programmed (automated) or Interactive with the environment (interactive user (mouse click or move over an object), event driven (monitoring and when it occurs a task is performed), or condition (If Then Logic branching) in order to perform predefined tasks within a presentation. – These are typical break points in your presentation that will allow you to demonstrate a particular principle or concept. Animation vs Simulation ??

5 Why and When to Use Animation? Enhance the effectiveness of your message/purpose – Poor presenters use animation in place of substance. – For decoration/cute/cheesy/etc Part of Planning State. – Part of knowing your audience, the audio visuals you will be using (computer speed/audio effects/software loaded on the PC, etc. – Is it necessary. Simple is always better in this case. Purpose for the movement is important! – Movement on slides (any movement attracts audience attention – good and bad ) In the flow of the presentation, when is an optimum time? 1.No one size answer fits all but knowing your audience helps and planning is critical. Uses 1.Good for revealing complex information in stages. Makes it memorable. 2.Highlight the key areas, when there are many competing elements on your slide. E.g. a key process or critical component in a process flow diagram you are explaining. 3.Fully illustrating or demonstrating a concept from beginning to end, Narrative long form –step by step. NOTE: Best used for training applications or an online 24 hr resource.

6 Powerpoint is able to handle several file formats – Wav – Wmf – Avi – mpeg

7 Animation Steps/Process Flow Begin with the Animation Tab ( Home\Insert\Design\Transitions\Animations\Slide Show\Review\View\Format ). Either 1. select the object or 2. default to all and let Power point assign the default options for you. I prefer option 1 to select the specifics in order to optimize and control the delivery for maximum audience impact. Various ways to add Animation – Menu Bar (None, Appear, Fade, etc>>>>>>) – Add Item Menu Button – Start / stop timing/ Delay until some event or time has occurred (Event Driven) – Event Driven – Record feature – Order feature to reorder the animation steps as desired. Smart Art Object Animation is better than text animation.

8 Sound Steps/Process Flow Begin with the Insert Tab ( Home\Insert\Design\Transitions\Animations\Slide Show\Review\View\Format ). Add audio button to access audio library on existing PC (normal case). Can use to bring in audio from other media sources ( a server/ I tunes library/ CD etc. ). Royalty free music is provided by Microsoft Various ways to add Sound Effects… *.wav file extensions. 30kb to 525 kilo bytes musical samples used. Microsoft uses Windows Media Player. Hwd and Software. Speakers and Sound media player Compatibility is always a risk!!! Check your equipment and develop a back up plan just in case. A laptop, a modified presentation, etc. – Menu Bar (None, Appear, Fade, etc>>>>>>) – Add Item Menu Button – Start / stop timing/ Delay until some event or time has occurred (Event Driven) – Event Driven – Record feature – Order feature to reorder the animation steps as desired. Playback Control menu Make sure you media player and sound are tested before. Rehearsal and practice make perfect in this case.…..

9 Video /Multmedia Steps/Process Flow Begin with the Insert Tab ( Home\Insert\Design\Transitions\Animations\Slide Show\Review\View\Format ). Add Video button to access audio library on existing PC (normal case). Can use to bring in audio from other media sources ( a server/ I tunes library/ CD etc. ). Various ways to add Video Effects – Menu Bar (None, Appear, Fade, etc>>>>>>) – Add Item Menu Button – Start / stop timing/ Delay until some event or time has occurred (Event Driven) – Event Driven – Record feature – Order feature to reorder the animation steps as desired. Playback Control menu Make sure you media player and sound are tested before. Rehearsal and practice make perfect in this case.…..
