PowerPoint Assignment - 100 points
Based on your topic, create a colorful PowerPoint presentation of 15-20 slides. As you write, remember: Be Brief! In a presentation, short phrases are preferred over complete sentences. You want the screen to show only the main points while you, the presenter, fill in the details.
Apply a design that ties your slides together. (Please do not use a design that takes a long time to come on screen.)
Use at least three different slide layouts.
Change background color on a few slides.
Use Custom animation transitions, builds, and dimming, all of these to hold your audiences attention.
Transitions are done in Slide Sorter View, or in Normal View | Slide show menu | Slide Transition
Builds are done in Slide Sorter View, or in Normal View | Slide show menu | Custom Animation
Dimming: You must be in Normal View, click the Slide Show menu, then click Custom Animation. Using the Order & Timing tab, select the part(s) of the slide that you want to animate and the order you want them to appear. I do not recommend animating the title.
Using the Effects tab, chose a color for the dimming effect. Chose whether you want the text to appear together under 1st level paragraphs, or if you want each sub-level of bullets to appear separately.
When using sounds, be aware of the amount of storage space that they are going to take up. Keep them to a minimum.
Insert a scanned or digital photo, a picture from the Internet, a table, graph, or drawing. You may use clip art also, but have at least one of the above. Also, use WordArt to enhance one slide's title.
Include on-screen documentation of any Internet picture, at least the web address.
Make a notes page, including information not on the slides, designed to help you as if you were giving an actual presentation.
Print the Notes page.
Spell-check and proofread. Points will be deducted for misspelled words.
Make a list (using MSWord2000) of at least 25 Power Point features that you used as you created the presentation.
