Why It Matters: Microsoft PowerPoint, part 2

Why learn how to add media in Microsoft PowerPoint?

In the last module, we focused on some basic functionality in PowerPoint. But this program is capable of a lot more, including incorporating images and videos as well as allowing you to precisely position items.

Before we move into the mechanics of each of these, let us consider for a moment the types of information you may wish to convey in a presentation.

  1. You want to show a clip from an advertising campaign.
  2. You want to provide a visual introduction of newly hired employees.
  3. You want to illustrate a particular work process with several steps.

All of these questions can be answered with the valuable tools available in PowerPoint.
