Title: Power Point Tutorial

Power Point Tutorial
  • Power Point is a powerful presentation program
    but a relatively easy system to use.
  • The menu of functions is much the same as in MS
    Word and some people even call Power Point
    Glorified Word.
  • The following tutorial should provide you with
    the basic understanding and guidance to create a
    Power Point presentation of you own.

Getting Started
  • We recommend that you print out the slides in
    this tutorial and then use them as a guide to do
    construct your own Power Point presentation.
  • Go to File, Select Print, then under Print
    What, select Handouts, and under Slides Per
    Page, select 2 and then OK

  • as transparent (no color). This saves your ink
  • since a colored background would require the
  • background to be printed in color for a
  • or hard copy printed on a color printer and it
  • print as a black background on a non-color
  • (using up your black ink).

Next, you will select a slide layout. Go to the
next slide.

While preparing your presentation, you have been
in the presentation draft mode. To see your

select Slide Show or you can click on the slide
show icon.

  • Using special effects- Slide Transitions and
    Bullet Animation
  • Hopefully, you have noticed that the slides in
    this presentation have transitioned in from
    different perspectives rather than just appearing

    your presentations as follows (go to the next

  • Selecting a Transition
  • Go to Slide Show on the top menu and select
    Slide Transition.
  • Go to the next slide to see the transition

Transition Selections
  • For this slide, we have selected Blinds
    Vertical as our transition type.
  • Note that you can also select the speed of the
    transition as well as how the transition occurs
    such as when you click the mouse or automatically
    after so many seconds which you also select.
  • Click Slide Show to finish your selection and
    see the effect.

How you select your transition may vary
depending on which version of MS Office you are
using but variation should not be significant.
Go to next slide for Custom Animation.
  • Notice that there are five bullets on this slide.
  • During the presentation, you may want them to
    come up one at a time instead of all at once.
  • To have them come up one at a time
  • Go to the top menu and select Slide Show .
  • Next, select Custom Animation
  • Go to next slide

  • Using Custom Animation
  • First click on the bullet area vs. the title area

    do a Power Point presentation.

    and bullet animations.

To insert clip art into your presentation, select
New Slide from the top line menu and then

Go to next slide.
Now that you have your picture, just add the
accompanying text.
Go to the next slide for hyperlinking.
A Short Tutorial on Hyperlinking
  • Hyperlinking allows you to link, during your
    presentation, to another file on your computer or
    to a specific location on the Internet and then
    return to your presentation.
  • To set up a hyperlink, you highlight a word or a
    sentence that will serve, when clicked on, as the
    link to the file or Internet location.
  • Go to the next slide

  • First may sure that you know the location the
    file or Internet Web site to which you want to
  • For example, the Louvre Museum in Paris
  • Next, select the word or sentence that you will

cursor on the highlighted area and right click
your mouse. The menu above will appear, click on

changed in color and underlined to signify that
it is a hyperlink. Go to the next slide

  • .and you are immediately connected to the Web
    Site (note you must have Internet access on the
    computer used for your presentation).
  • You can surf the Louvre web site or click to a
    specific area.
  • When finished, simply exit the site and you will
    be returned to the Power Point presentation at
    the point you left it.

This ends the Power Point Tutorial.
