Discover how to create powerpoints that get your audiences not only interested in your presentation, but also involved in it.
Note: Basic knowledge of how to use powerpoint is recommended.
Import videos directly into your presentation. Eliminate the need to upload videos to youtube to show one
The creation of movement in your slide ranging from simple translations to the awesomeness of a slide restructing itself before your eyes.
Learn how to create the illusion that your powerpoint is just one big animated slide.
Making things happen in your presentation when you click on specific object rather than have your presentation in a linear order.
Create a fully functional table of contents for your presentation that allows you to jump right into the big stuff, or be able to quickly refer to another slide to respond to a question.
Combine this table of contents with an animation to create a drop-down table of contents that exists on all slides
Make your interactive buttons actually look like buttons rather than dull blocks. Learn the flexibility of powerpoint's capabilities of building user-interface-worthy objects. All done without importing a single image.
Build custom-shaped polygons
Create the illusion of the slide being glass which has a hole in it with cracks trailing from the hole (as though somebody threw a baseball through a window)
When & Where
Bentley CIS Sandbox
The term “Sandbox” in industry refers to an environment for experimentation and trying new things. That’s our vision – to create an inviting, collaborative space for exploring and learning new technologies, and to support student learning for our courses, in ways that resonate with today’s digital students. Outfitted so far with Google TVs, collaborative study spaces, large-screen TVS, a smart board, specialized networking equipment, as well as experimental software environments (such as Windows 8, and Linux) we have designed an appealing space for students to interact with new technologies. Microsoft, in support of our plans for this new facility, donated an Xbox and several software titles for students to use here. We hope this will further their interest in Information Technology.
