For those of you who are not familiar with Adobe Presenter, this is a PowerPoint add-in that lets you create eLearning content within PowerPoint. The Slide Manager option in Adobe Presenter allows you to view and adjust your individual PowerPoint slide properties. The information provided by Slide Manager is more detailed than what you can access within the PowerPoint interface. For example, you can see a thumbnail of each slide -- next to each thumbnail, you'll find details about Slide Title, Presenter Information, Navigation Name, Navigation Options, Slide Advance Behavior, Lock Slide Information, and Multimedia Information.

Reusing your existing slides can be of great help since it saves so much of your time. While the menu option Insert | Slides From | Other Presentation enables you to add selected slides to the active presentation, there is another easier and more intuitive way to reuse your slides. In this tutorial, we'll show you how to reuse slides through this drag and drop process within PowerPoint 2011 for Mac.
Very few people are aware that Adobe's PDF files actually support movement and multimedia! Yes, you can have animations and transitions within PDFs, and also these PDFs can contain audio and video files. So why do the PDFs typically created from within PowerPoint using PowerPoint's built-in PDF output -- or even created using Adobe's Acrobat Pro program not contain these niceties? Was that a little confusing? Let's make this easier. Imagine you have a PowerPoint presentation that has some animation and an embedded video clip. Convert that to a PDF and all the movement and multimedia is lost! The solution is not very obvious, but Adobe creates a PowerPoint add-in called Adobe Presenter -- this lets you directly publish your presentation into a PDF with all the movement and multimedia preserved.
Finding perfect media for a presentation is no piece of cake, not to speak of being expensive as well. Although there are a wide range of search engines that are capable of pulling up tons of information we need, there's always the hidden caveat that such content cannot be legally used! Yes, there is always the sword of Damocles hanging over your head that a restrictive but invisible license may be applied to the content you find via search engines, which later may result in copyright violations, and even legal headaches. That brings us to the topic of this article - and that is how you can search and download Public Domain content via Pond5.
Presentations with a large number of slides may be a challenge for managing unless they are logically divided into Sections. Even presentations that do not have a large number of slides can benefit from Sections. However, just dividing slides into Sections will not achieve much unless you create and name these Sections in a proper manner to represent what the slides within each Section contain. In this tutorial, let us learn how to add Sections, and also how to rename them.
Previously we explored how reusing your existing slides can be a great help, since it saves so much of your time. While bringing up the Reuse Slides task pane enables you to add selected slides to the active presentation, there is another easier and more intuitive way to reuse your slides. You can drag selected slides from the source presentation and drop them within the newer presentation. In this tutorial, we'll show you how to reuse slides through this drag and drop process within PowerPoint 2010 for Windows.
Do you want to create something cool this Valentine's Day? Then just load up PowerPoint, and get started with this "idea kit". The download contains two animated Valentine's Day PowerPoint presentations. Detailed tutorial slides are within the presentation that explains how you can create these Valentine's Day animated slides on your own.
While PowerPoint does have an option to automatically compare presentations, sometimes doing this comparison manually can be actually more effective, especially when you have fewer changes in the first place. You can place both presentations side by side and compare individual slides.
Adobe Presenter provides various publish options such as to publish locally, via the Adobe Connect service, and also as an interactive PDF. Each of these options has additional settings such as appearance, playback, quality, and attachments. Within these Settings, you can personalize the output. In this tutorial we'll explore the local publish settings.
Word Clouds provide creative ways to explore and explain a concept or a subject using relevant terms that support a central idea. Even better, they create a visual from some words, and can be used effectively in presentation scenarios, such as within your PowerPoint slides. However, creating such a Word Cloud in PowerPoint can be both a daunting and a time consuming task! You will first have to insert text boxes and rotate them randomly until you are satisfied. And even then, the output you achieve in PowerPoint may not be so appealing. To make this process easier, we will explore another site called the Word Cloud Generator.
Recording slides is almost like delivering a presentation that you cannot deliver in person! Let's imagine that you cannot deliver your slides in person. What you would then want to do is to deliver your presentation in front of your computer, almost as if you had a live audience present -- all this while, your narrations are being recorded. Even the time you spend on each slide is recorded along with the time taken for each animation to play. In PowerPoint 2011, as far as interface is considered, there is no difference between the options available for rehearsing slides and for recording a slide show. The only difference is that while recording a slide show, along with the time spent on each slide, your narrations are also being recorded through the connected microphone.
Let's imagine that you cannot deliver your slides in person. You then want to do the next best option, that is to deliver your presentation in front of your computer, almost as if you had a live audience present. All this while, all your narrations are being recorded. Even the time you spend on each slide is recorded along with the time taken for each animation to play. You can also record your laser pointer activity if you use PowerPoint’s built in laser pointer. All of this can be saved as part of your presentation that you can send to others – and they can see this at their convenience, with your voice accompanying the slide show!
