This page discusses the steps to create a short video using Powerpoint. Note that all members of the Brock community have access to the latest version of Powerpoint, and can install them as needed on a number of devices. Instructions for doing so are available at the Brock ITS Office 365 page.

In Summary

  • Create your presentation
  • With your microphone and optional webcam ready, choose to "Record Slide Show" and create your presentation
  • Save As/Export your video as a movie - this will longer than simply saving the presentation.
