Description

Tips
Save this PowerPoint to your own machine and open it in PowerPoint to learn some basic tips.
How to Print
How to print one or more slides per page, with lines to take notes, print speaker's notes, or an outline of all the text in the presentation.
Insert Clip Art
Clip Art is now located behind a new button in PowerPoint 2013. All Clip Art now requires access to the Internet, Office 2013 does not have an option to have Clip Art installed on our own computers. This document describes where to find it and some new options.
Add Website Links
You may add links to websites within your PowerPoint presentation. When the presentation runs and the link is clicked, an Internet browser will automatically run and open to that website. These websites might highlight an aspect of your topic, provide a prompt for discussion or delve into greater detail or explanation of your topic.
Insert a YouTube Video
YouTube is a video sharing website where users can upload and share video clips. You must have an active Internet connection to insert a YouTube video and again to view the video when the PowerPoint presentation is run. This document will guide you through both processes: inserting and playing the video from the PowerPoint presentation, while also seeing your slide without any advertisements from YouTube.
Animate Text
This guide provides step-by-step instructions on how to animate text in PowerPoint, which is one practical strategy for adding interest to PowerPoints. Bulleted lists may be animated to appear one line (paragraph) at a time—including in reverse order.
Switch Monitors to Show PowerPoint
If you are teaching in a classroom with dual monitors at the instructor station and you want to show a PowerPoint then you may want to control which monitor displays the PowerPoint presentation. This document will explain how to switch the show to display on either monitor from within PowerPoint.
Slide Show Tips
This document provides some quick keystroke tips to support the PowerPoint Slide Show features, and assumes that you have a PowerPoint presentation open and ready to run.
