In the Microsoft Office 2010 Suite, there are several new features. We will be presenting workshops in August and September to review these features, but here is a breakdown of some of the new things you can do in PowerPoint.
- Sections: With Sections, you can create subgroups to better organize and manipulate your slides and apply transitions.
- Video options: You can make adjustments to the look of your video such as adding a frame and color mask, and you can bookmark specific places within a video and trim unwanted portions.
- Collaborating: The review feature in Word and Excel is now available in PowerPoint; you can easily add comments and track changes made to a presentation.
- Sharing: Save your presentation as a video that you can embed in a website or upload to YouTube. Sign up for a free Windows Live account, and you can upload your files to SkyDrive, or create a Web link to your presentation, and broadcast it live over the Internet.
