Microsoft PowerPoint Presentation Skills

Here are some PowerPoint presentation skills
Microsoft
PowerPoint and similar programs have become increasingly popular, you can use them to creat all kinds of wonderful presentations such as business presentations or Photo slideshow…
PowerPoint Presentation Tips
PowerPoint presentations can be a very effective way to conduct business presentations. There is however a definite difference between an effective presentation and an ineffective one. This article focuses on the specific PowerPoint presentation skills that are critical to conduct effective PowerPoint presentations.
Here are some ideas from Lynn Marotta who is a successful freelance writer and contributor to Web-Conferencing-Zone.com.�

When preparing for a PowerPoint presentation, there is one key thing to consider before you even begin creating your slides. You need to determine what the key points are that you want your audience to take away from the presentation. Your whole presentation will then need to be organized around these key points. Once you have determined and clearly defined what the key points are, you can then focus on the layout details of the slides for the presentation itself.

Let us look at some of the specific things you need to consider when preparing for a PowerPoint presentation. One thing to keep in mind is how the PowerPoint will be delivered to your intended audience. Will you be giving an oral presentation, or will you be delivering the PowerPoint for the recipients to follow online. When discussing the following points, we will look briefly, at how the delivery method affects the strategy.

  • Focus on the visual — The general rule of thumb is that you can never have too many visuals in a PowerPoint presentation. People tend to under utilize graphics and over utilize text on PowerPoint slides. Graphics are much more useful and memorable for the recipient. This holds true whether the PowerPoint presentation is viewed online or is given orally in front of a crowd.
  • Do not make it too long — Be conservative on the length of the presentation itself. You want to include just enough information to get your point across. You may be able to get away with a little bit longer presentation if you are preparing slides strictly for an online audience. They generally have more time to go through the slide presentation at their leisure. However, it is always a good idea to be as concise as possible.
  • Effectively introduce — This may seem like a trivial point, but it is not. Introductions are important. An effective PowerPoint introduction should clearly define the purpose of the entire presentation. It also gives you a means to point out the key things you want the audience to take away from the presentation.
  • Carefully review — This is critical no matter which method of delivery you will be using. You do not want to send out a PowerPoint with slides that are riddled with typos and grammatical errors. You also want to make sure that the slides are easy to read and follow. If you are presenting your PowerPoint orally in front of a crowd of people, you need to make sure you practice ahead of time. You want to make sure you stick to the key points, and stay within your designated time limit.

With a focus on the key points, and some careful attention to details you can prepare a powerful PowerPoint presentation that is sure to be well received.

And the next thing is you can use some creative tool like Acoolsoft PPT2DVD which can help you burn PowerPoint to DVD, then you can watch your PowerPoint on TV.
You can also use Acoolsoft PPT2Video Converter to convert your PowerPoint presentation to all kinds of video format, then you show your slideshow on mobile devices such as iPod, iPhone and so on.

PPS to dvd – convert pps file to MPEG

Resources:

http://www.ppt-to-video.com/blog/pps-to-dvd.html

Someone asked me about how to burn PPS to DVD or convert PPS(PowerPoint) files to MPEG video that can be burned to DVD!

A PPS is just a PPT file with a different file extension that tells PowerPoint “Open me directly into slide show view, not editing view.” You can “convert” from one to the other simply by renaming the files. You need the same software to view either one.

Here are some questions and solutions, hope it can help you:
Q:
Is there anyone here that can help me? I’m trying to take a slide show I created for and burn it to a DVD that will then play in a DVD player (I have pictures and music both embedded in the .pps)
Thanks.

A:If what you want to do is just a data back up, and you don’t need to play your PowerPoint with a DVD player, common burning software is enough and No matter it is a CD or DVD. DVD disc have more space compare to CD.
If you want to watch PowerPoint on TV with a DVD player, here some aspects you need to pay attention to:
PowerPoint does not have the built-in ability to save presentations as video files or other video formats such as DVD-Video and, even if it did, there would be significant loss of interactivity (because DVD-Video and PowerPoint slide show have very different capabilities in this area) and loss of visual fidelity (DVD-Video resolution is less than typical computer display resolution and most television will not render colors the same way that a computer display will).

The only way to burn pps to DVD is to get specific PowerPoint to DVD software.
http://www.ppt-to-video.com/powerpoi…-overview.html

the other option is to use Windows Movie Maker but you would have to start from scratch and insert all the pictures onto it. I believe Windows XP and Windows Vista came with this free software so you probably have it. You click on Import Media and select the pictures you want (press Ctrl to select individual pictures). You can then use the Auto Movie button to add credits, music and transitions to your movie. Then burn it to DVD.

Q:I’m hoping to help a friend, who has to give a presentation, to convert a Powerpoint (.pps) file to either an MPEG file or, if possible, directly to a DVD format file. I downloaded a “Trial Version” of “Presentersoft PowerVideoMaker” and successfully converted the PPS file into MPEG format, which I then created a DVD with using my “Movie Factory” software. Unfortunately, both the MPEG file and the resultant DVD had a flashing notice on the bottom right corner of the video that it was “created with an unlicensed version of PowerVideoMaker”. Since this will most likely be the only time that I will ever need to convert a PPS file, it really doesn’t make sense for me to spend $ 125 CAD to buy the licensed version of PowerVideoMaker. So my question is this: Is anyone aware of any freeware available to convert PPS files to either MPEG’s, AVI’s or directly to DVD format?
A:There is no such thing as a free lunch if you want to get a better result! A trial program is much better.
and I must say I’ve never been that impressed with the results of any of the capture software I’ve tried, I can’t say I’m that surprised, bearing in mind what must be the CPU load when both displaying PowerPoint and capturing a full screen. Even with a beast of a machine (Dual 2Ghz Athlon, 2Gb RAM, RAID array, 128Mb VGA) running at 800×600 and with all the performance boosting suggestions I’ve only ever achieved an unsatisfactory frame rate of approx 15fps. I can only increase the frame rate by reducing the resolution. Both options, in my opinion, are unsatisfactory when you consider that the media is DVD and capable of much more…
Am I missing something? I’ve used 3 methods to create DVDs that I’ve found more satisfactory than my screen capture results:
1) connecting the S-video out from a laptop to a domestic DVD recorder (i.e. one that records DVDs like a VCR). The DVD can then be taken to the PC, ripped and authored as desired.
2) Same process but capturing the video on another PC through an MPEG2 capture device, such as the the Win-TV PVR. I’m not 100% happy with these processes either, as it involves conversion to analogue video and back to digital, but the results have been far superior to my efforts with capture software.
3) Use
Acoolsoft PPT2DVD and burn PowerPoint(PPS) to DVD directly, great and easy way buy you have to pay for this program, anyway, it’s worth the money if you want to get a wow presentaion on TV with a DVD disc.

Enjoy your time and presentation!
