How to Create Back to School PowerPoint Slideshow

August 22, 2012 / Posted by Dupont on PowerPoint Tips

This summer vocation is destined to be unusual because of the once-every-4-year London 2012 Olympic Games.
Back to School
The Olympics come to the end, so does your summer vocation and you should be prepared for the new semester? Usually on the first day of school teachers will ask you to share your summer vocation with everyone else, what you did, where you go, who you met, etc. Then create a back to school PowerPoint slideshow seems a good idea.

The first thing you need to do is to collect all the materials you want to include in the slideshow, like photos, video clips, back ground music, PowerPoint templates, etc. Free download and use these back to school PowerPoint templates for your PowerPoint slideshow. Click “Design” > “Browse for Themes” to apply the PowerPoint template.

Then finish the PowerPoint presentation with words, pictures, music and video clips, etc. and tune each animation and transition to make the slides alive. Preview the effect of the PowerPoint slideshow by pressing F5, and if you’re satisfied with the effects, go to the next step.

Playing a PowerPoint with audio and video clips on another computer is always troublesome, due to software and hardware differences like PowerPoint version, PowerPoint program, operating system, etc. So we will save the PowerPoint slideshow as video so that the teacher could play it simply using Windows Media Player on Win or QuickTime Player on Mac.
