Introduction to Videos in PowerPoint

PowerPoint is a versatile presentation tool which often uses videos to add more in-depth information to a presentation. Video can be instructional and communicate more than simply words, tables or pictures alone. This section shows examples of how to integrate video into a PowerPoint presentation’s slides.

In the PowerPoint module, you learned the basics of inserting video into a presentation. We will now go over PowerPoint videos in more depth here using a business scenario with Karen.

Many, if not most of the videos used in PowerPoint are linked in from external sources and websites like YouTube or other web pages.

After learning this material, your presentations can be more dynamic and interactive and hold the attention of your presentation audience.
