Exercise 1 - Animating Slide Content

The ability to create and modify different types of animation is an important feature of PowerPoint. You can also customize the timing of animation effects, a feature that's also applicable to transition effects.

In this exercise, you will create and work with animations in a presentation.

Exercise 2 - Timing of Animation and Transition Effects

The Animation tab and the Transition tab both contain powerful options for working with the timing of effects. Effects such as fly in, one at a time work on built-in timing devices. But PowerPoint provides tools you can use to specify the timing of events.

In this exercise, you'll set animation and transition timings by setting effect and timing options.

Exercise 3 - Inserting and Formatting Media

Besides animation and transition effects, another powerful way to further enhance a presentation is by turning it into a multimedia experience by adding audio and/or video.

In this exercise, you'll insert and work with audio and video in your presentations.
