TIPS: on using powerpoint presentations with audio


See Visit Tracker section



  1. Review all training powerpoints prior to presenting to the home visitors. You may download and add slides without affecting the audio portion. 
  2. Download the powerpoint first (and enable editing if that pops us), audio may not play if using the version online 
  3. Right click on mouse to pause audio and right click to resume audio 
  4. Depending on audience understanding, you may want to pause at each slide and read through the bullet points. The audio enhances the information on the slide. 
  5. Pause for questions, and for pair and share activities 
  6. Write questions down as you go and any unanswered questions can be sent to TX HIPPY for clarification
