1 How to make up your own ‘Millionnaire’ game using the Powerpoint template supplied: Open PowerPoint, then use ‘File/Open’ to find ‘millionnaire’ in P:\MFL\French.Use ‘File/Save As’ to give your new creation a name, and to place it in a suitable folder. (‘Save’ frequently from now on!)Decide on the total number of questions in your quiz and, by copy/pasting and moving files in Slide Sorter view, arrive at a ‘randomised’ answer sequence.To copy/paste a slide, simply right-click on it and select Copy from the menu which appears. Now move your cursor to the place where you want your new slide to appear, then right-click and select Paste.To move slides (so that the answer sequence is not a straightforward rotation of A, then B, then C, then D!) just left-click on a slide and, with the left mouse button depressed, drag it to a new position and release.Now double-click on Slide 2 to begin entering your questions and answers. The screen display will change from Slide Sorter view to Slide View, as pictured below.Double-click anywhere on the lettering of the word ‘Question’ and it will automatically be highlighted. Now you can begin to type, and your own text will take the place of the word ‘Question’ while retaining the same Font Size and Font Colour.Repeat this process for each of the four answers (taking special care, of course, to type the correct answer in place of the word ‘Correct’!). Don’t worry about the yellow/green background to the correct answer - during the showing of the quiz, this only appears when you finally wish to reveal the answer.Now move on to Slide 3 by clicking on the downward pointing double arrow in the bottom right-hand corner of the screen. Enter text as before.When you have finished entering all your questions and answers, return to Slide 1 (the title page) by dragging the slider bar (right-hand side of screen) back to the top. If you forget to do this, you will find that your Slide Show will not start at the beginning, but will start with the slide which you have been modifying.Now view your masterpiece in Slide Show mode. This is accessed by clicking on the Slide Show icon which is near the bottom-left corner of the screen. The show now proceeds, on mouse-click, either until it reaches the end, or until you press the ‘Esc’ button on your keyboard.Have fun with this, and do share your work with colleagues!RBP.S. I’m afraid I couldn’t reproduce everything exactly as it happens on TV. Normally, of course, the candidate’s chosen ‘final answer’ lights up on the screen, and we all wait with bated breath to see what the correct answer is! I thought long and hard about how I might achieve this effect, but decided, in the end, that it was simply beyond my limited capabilities!You will also note that, after the flashing correct answer sequence, the relevant box is surrounded by a golden rectangle rather than being statically highlighted in green as on TV. This is deliberate, as I find that it allows the white text of the correct answer to be more easily read - so there!
