Publishing interactive PowerPoint animations

Examples of ways to publish PowerPoint animations| Try viewing this blog in various browsers. The morphing animation is displayed using a variety of strategies. Various browser settings and various levels of sophistication of your audience may cause unexpected results. Strategy 1. This is the "native" PowerPoint presentation displayed as in iframe in this blog: For this strategy to work, you need a Microsoft 365 or Office 365 subscription in order to publish your PowerPoint presentation to the web. One of the options then open to you is to embed your presentation as an iframe. In the event that you don't have that subscription, you can use Strategy 2 below. Note that Google slides lose some of their animation and sound. It is quite easy to bring the sound back. Google slides is a good option if you don't have a high-end Microsoft subscription. There does not seem to be a way to make the animation run automatically.

PowerPoint's morphing transition

  An example to demonstrate PowerPoint's morphing transition| Not all browsers were created equal Try viewing this presentation in various browsers. The moral of the story is, you may spend a lot of time preparing animations for learners, but the browser that your learners use may let you down. They may think you created a crappy animation. The things that seem to impact the morph are: whether there are cached data in the browser; whether the person that developed the animation has it open in his development environment and how many other people have the animation open at the same time. There also does not seem to be a way to play the animation automatically. Below is an MP4 version of the simple animation.   Visit my course at Udemy on Interactive PowerPoint Animations. PowerPoint presentations to be used as templates for your own animations are available for all the examples used in the course. Sometimes I have discount coupons for the course to give away.

An English Grammar example

An English Grammar example of an Interactive PowerPoint Animation| The following is an English grammar example published in PowerPoint for the Web if you have that kind of subscription with Microsoft 365. Microsoft 365 This is an embedded Microsoft Office presentation, powered by Office . Google Slides If you don't have a Microsoft365 subscription, you can always convert your presentation to a Google Slides presentation and publish it from Google Drive. Below is the Google Slides version. Google Slides couldn't make the original sound files work, so I reinserted them after importing them into Google Slides. The original PowerPoint version also relied on the Morph transition, which is not available in Google slides. So the entered text will display a little differently. I promised my students links to a site that gives all the tenses of all the verbs used in the example. (The links open in new windows...) (to go) (to eat) (to attend) (to do) (to look) (to swim) Cli
