Step by Step with PowerPoint

This page offers links to PDF pages and a video to help with PowerPoint and take you step-by-step through such key basic skills as adding a text box or illustration all the way to imbedding video and making transitions.

Note: illustrations in both the video and pages are from PowerPoint 2010 because the faculty computers are still running that version of the software, but there is enough similarity between 2010 and 2013 that you can still learn what you need.

Video: Films on Demand in a PowerPoint. You can do it!

Note: This video applies to PowerPoint 2010 and older versions of 2013. Newer versions of 2013 and PowerPoint 2016 no longer allow the Microsoft Web Browser Control. Also, this is a fairly complex procedure and needs every second of a thirteen minute video. Follow the directions carefully. Below is the special snippet of Virtual Basic code you need to make the Films on Demand embed work.
