Countdown Timers for PowerPoint (Set 2: Updated)

We are happy to announce a second bunch of Countdown Timer slides. After the success of our first Countdown Timer series, here's another set that contains longer countdowns (10 and 15 minutes each). Plus, we also include video clips in this series, if you want these countdown timers as video clips rather than slides. Additionally, this series includes 10 sample bonus presentations with ready-to-use countdown slides (just copy the first slide to your presentation).

Analytics and Collaboration Options in Adobe Presenter
Analytics and Collaboration Options in Adobe Presenter

Within Adobe Presenter, you can also enable analytics and collaboration options. When active, the analytic options provide info about how the eLearning course you have created is being used by learners. For example, you will be able to know how many learners have completed the course, what their level of completion is, and how their user engagement has been with each module. And within the collaboration option, learners will use a widget to ask questions in real-time and converse with the author and other peers. When you publish a module with the collaboration widget enabled, users can ask questions from within the module.

Adobe Presenter provides various publish options -- and these work great if you have control over how your users will work with the eLearning content you create. However, there may be times when you do not have an idea about how and where the content will be used or distributed. In such scenarios, you can use the Package option that lets you publish the entire eLearning presentation along with all the assets and media within a single package.

Slides with Countdown Timers
Do you need to keep track of the time you spend while delivering your slides? What if you are in a situation where you must give your presentation within precisely 15 or 10 minutes, and then wrap up? In such a scenario, it becomes necessary that you keep an eye for the time. This tutorial explains how you can achieve this goal by adding a countdown timer within your presentation in PowerPoint 2010 using a ready-to-use video file.
Removing Sections
Sections in PowerPoint not only help you easily manage your presentation slides, but there's so much more you can achieve using them. You can add and name Sections, move slides from one Section to another etc. And, at any point of time after creating a Section, you can also remove it -- or also remove a Section along with its content slides. You can also remove Sections altogether in a presentation.

Arrow Circles for PowerPoint

You might have seen these types of arrow segments that form a circle - they are frequently used in slides that show processes, continuous sequences, and cycle diagrams. We bring you these arrow circles with 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, and 8 segments each - but these are not merely segmented shapes that you will find elsewhere. First of all, you get these in two widths each - so you get a variation that lets you choose either a thinner or thicker segment. Additionally, you also get these segments in a regular geometric style - but what sets this apart is that we have also included an organic style so that your segments appear hand-drawn.

Download and use these arrow circles in your slides.
