Chapter 2: Multimedia Presentations Activity (7): Automating presentations.

Date Session Class Objectives:
By the end of this lesson, students will be able to: Create self running presentations.

By using a self-running presentation, you can communicate your information without a presenter. For example, you can set up a presentation to run unattended at a trade show or convention, or you can send a CD with a self-running presentation to a client. Before you can self-run a presentation, you have to tell PowerPoint that you want it to self-run. Self-running PowerPoint presentations dont have the control buttons in the lower-left corner. You cant click the screen or press a key to move forward or backward to the next or previous slide. The only control you have over a self-running presentation is pressing the Esc key. Pressing Esc ends the presentation. PowerPoint offers three ways to indicate how long you want each slide to stay on-screen. You can keep all slides on-screen the same amount of time, choose a different time for each slide, or rehearse the presentation and tell PowerPoint to keep each slide on-screen for the amount of time it remained on-screen during the rehearsal.

Teacher Activity:
Follow these steps to keep all slides in a self-running presentation on-screen for the same amount of time: 1. Switch to Slide Sorter view. In Slide Sorter view, you will able to see how long each slide is supposed to remain on-screen. 2. Click the Animations tab.
