  Introduction
 Presentations usually consist of more than one slide!

 Slides can be navigated both manually and
  automatically…

 But they can also be shown in one particular order
  or in an order that the user wants at the time of
  delivery.
   Manual transitions
 Manual transitions involve some form of user
  interaction.

 The user determines when slides change.

 Also, if there are different elements to a slide, such
  as bullet points, the user can dictate when those
  lists appear.

 This is useful especially in a learning capacity as the
  presenter is able to take questions before
  continuing to the next slide.
  Automatic transitions
 Timings can be set up to automatically display slide
  elements and to change to the next slide.

 The timings need to be set up to give the user
  enough time to read and digest the content.

 These kind of presentations are suitable during
  exhibitions, open evenings and other similar events.

 It is not often suitable to have a presenter speaking
  just in case they fall behind…however, narration
  clips can be included to speak during the slide!
    Activity
  Complete the following table:

             Advantage             Disadvantage
Manual
Automatic


  Describe two advantages of using manual transitions for
   a presentation.                          [4 marks]

  A presentation is to be shown during a school open
   evening to promote a subject. Identify, justifying your
   choice, the most appropriate transition method.
                                                 [3 marks]
  Linear
 Basically…slides are shown in one order…each
  slide is displayed one after the other.



   Slide 1           Slide 2           Slide 3
  Non-Linear
 Slides can be shown in any order.

 Buttons can be used to jump around slides in any
  order…even going back to slides that have
  already been shown.

 This provides a level of flexibility…especially when
  presentations are shown to different audiences
  with different needs.
   › Entire sections can be missed out!

 Users can choose which slides to go to, but some
  slides can’t be accessed when certain choices are
