Powerpoint is a great tool and has grown up beyond a tool for presenters to fire multi-bullet pointed lists at audiences.
Did you know, for example. how easy it is to create videos using Powerpoint? Not only can you create great looking visuals in Powerpoint, there's some pretty nifty audio tools in there too that allow you to add narration and even music.
But why would you want to do this? It is a great way of bringing content to life. Adding audio narration to slides allows for deeper explanation and dialogue. This frees the slides up for doing what they do best and being visual, whilst audio narration tells the story.
I was going to record a video to demonstrate how you might go about doing this, but a quick search led me to the video below. It does a great job of showing you how to make videos using Powerpoint and goes as far as showing you tools to record narration with and how to upload to You Tube. It's fifteen minutes long, but well worth a watch.
The question for me that I think is key, is how can we use videos we have produced in Powerpoint to support learning and knowledge sharing in our organisations? What ideas do you have?
