Hi, my name is Dave Andrews. Today I'm going to show you how to use PowerPoint as a multimedia tool. What we're going to do is insert some videos and images into PowerPoint and I'm going to show you how to use those. So let's go to our computer. We're going to click on our Start button go to all program, let's find Microsoft Office and just launch PowerPoint. Alright so here's our presentation and I'm just going to call this my multimedia presentation. Let's add in a new slide by right clicking over here on the left and saying new slide. Prop one allows you to create different slides on which you can drop text and pictures. We're going to add a picture to this slide by clicking inside the main are, going to insert, let's say picture and I'm going to go to my desktop where I have some pictures from Hawaii here and let's just use number 5 here, a couple of dragons in the parade. Now there's my first picture. I want to insert another one on the next slide by creating a new slide, going to insert again and selecting picture. Let's get the float here and now I want to put in a video on the next slide. I'm just going to right click and create yet another new slide. Go to insert again but this time we want to insert a media clip and select media clip over here and we're going to select movie. Let's go to our desktop and I have a movie of a bear. Now PowerPoint will ask you for videos, how do you want that video to play. Do you want it to play automatically or do you want it to play when you click on it. I'm going to select automatically. So there's our bear. I'm going to make him a little bit larger on the slide as well. Now let's run our multimedia slide show. We can either press the F5 key or we can go to slide show at the top and click from beginning. So here's my multimedia presentation. I'm going to press the right arrow key. It takes me to my first picture slide. There's my next picture and now here's the bear. Now as you can see that animation is playing immediately when I got to that slide. My name is Dave Andrews and I've just showed you how to use PowerPoint as a multimedia tool.
