This product is available in Single or Multi User versions.

Single-user versions are for single student or teacher use at any
particular time, just as a single text book would be used. If you intend
to use the notes with multiple students the single user version should
be upgraded to the multi-user version.

Multi-user versions allow the school or institution to print as many
copies as required, or to place the PDF files on the school network,
intranet and staff laptops. A certificate of authentication is provided
with multi-user versions. Bookmarks provide links to all headings and
sub-headings, and individual chapters are provided.

Getting Started With PowerPoint
Microsoft PowerPoint is a program that allows you to create Multimedia presentations.
These include electronic slide shows and screen displays. For your first presentation you
will create a slide show for the Wattle Valley Animal Park which is a make believe zoo that
maintains animals in their natural habitat.


Starting a Presentation
1    Load Microsoft PowerPoint and you should receive the POWERPOINT screen.

2    Look at the labelled diagram below and refer to this diagram until you are fully
     familiar with the sections of the PowerPoint screen.

The Microsoft PowerPoint Screen
The Microsoft PowerPoint 2007 screen is quite different to other programs.

                                                    top left of the screen. It is basically a
                                                    FILE menu with icons to save, open,
                                                    print and close documents.

                                                    has tools for controlling how
                                                    Microsoft powerPoint operates and
                                                    the EXIT POWERPOINT button is
                                                    used to close the program.

                                                   QUICK ACCESS TOOLBAR and a list of
                                                   command buttons will be displayed.
                                                   Select buttons that you may need.

                                                    GROUPS.

 4    Double click on a TAB and the RIBBON is expanded.


  NOTE:      If you click once on a tab of a collapsed RIBBON, the RIBBON
             will open until a command is selected then collapse again. You
             might like to try this.



 5    There are more commands in the RIBBON.


                                                  6 Click in the top placeholder then

(or magnification) of the screen. The ZOOM CONTROLS are in the ZOOM group of the
VIEW tab of the RIBBON and at the bottom right of the STATUS BAR.

and the topic of the presentation. When you start PowerPoint the TITLE SLIDE layout is

                                                  set the text to the same YELLOW that
                                                  you used earlier.




      NOTE:   You can click on the FONT COLOUR button rather that its
              arrow if the FONT COLOUR button is set to the required colour.




                                                4 Highlight both lines of text and click

                                                  HOME tab.




      NOTE:   TEXT SHADOW places a shadowed outline around the letters.
              It makes text easier to read on coloured backgrounds, which
              we will be adding to the slide shortly.
