PowerPoint Video Tutorials by Daejeon

This is the go to thread for information on PowerPoint, all versions, whether English or Korean.

It is structured to cover essentials, hyper linking, animations, advanced functions, and is concluded with a tutorial on how to make a PowerPoint quiz/bomb game.

If you can't stand listening to my aussie/kiwi/south africanish accent, then I will also post documents for your reading pleasure.

A nice place to start, if you consider yourself "so so" "these days" with PowerPoint, is reading Paul's document on making quiz style games. (It is attached below).

Wow these video tutorials have been super helpful. Thank you so much.

The biggest issue I have had with PowerPoint has been when downloading and trying to run many of the PowerPoints I have found on here I get the error "no text convertor is installed for this file type".  I am using PowerPoint 2007. I have searched the microsoft help center and PPTFaq.com with no luck.

Thank you again.

Hi Daejeon, I have a question for you regarding embedding youtube videos in ppt2003.

I followed your tutorial (which was pretty awesome) and got my movie working, however if I save the ppt and reopen it it no longer works.... The shockwave box turns plain white, no X through it and nothing happens...
I've found I can open it's properties, copy the link. delete it and remake the shockwave box and it will work for the duration that the ppt file is open, but again, as soon as I save/close it/reopen it, nada...
Do you have any idea what could be causing this problem? Or where I could look for help?

Thanks a bunch, your tutorials and ppt games have saved many of my classes :)

I know, it does sound like that, but have selected it every time.... :(

So I looked into it and it appears in the recent PowerPoint update, they changed some options.

Now, if you want the Youtube video to play within PowerPoint, select embed to false. 

You had done everything correctly according to my tut, which was posted prior to the update.

Please let me know if the videos in the attachment play on your computer.

Woo! It worked! I had to copy the link, delete the object and remake it (which is pretty easy) but after saving and reopening it works.

Strange that nobody else had this problem (or posted about it)(or maybe figured out such a simple fix by themselves)

Anyway, thank you so much, for the tutorial and the help  :D

Hi Daejon,

I have a problem with your Angry Birds template...  I can make it work just fine with no problems on my computer in my office (which is in English), but when I move to my classroom, it doesn't work at all. 
I can't choose how many teams on the scoreboard, and when I click the X or check mark, it just takes me to the next slide instead of to the scoreboard slide...  Do you have any advice?

You will need to change the classroom computers trust center settings to allow for macros, Active X, and VBA as well

Hey Daejeon,

Firstly, I can only echo what most have said about you here on Waygook....Dude, you are hero to the masses and thank you ever so much for your amazing hardwork in creating these awesome games! Imagine my surprise to find out you're a fellow South African! Double yay!!!

I have been using your templates in my classes since discovering them with ooohs and aaahs from my students and will continue using them (if it is OK with you), but I have a small problem. In all of the games with scoreboards, only 6 groups are made provision for. I would like to change the template into allowing more groups on the scoreboards, but I have absolutely no idea how to do it. I've been watching your Youtube tutorials...again very helpful, but I've not come across one that covers this. I may be mistaken

Perhaps, I'm just totally clueless when it comes to these things, but want to learn more.

Again, thank you so much for all your help and hardwork!

Much respect and admiration!

Hi Daejeon,

I think your the person I need to help me... but if there's anyone else out there, I would greatly appreciate if you could step forward.

I downloaded this "Catch the Vocab" game from an elementary school 6th grade thread (thanks to the original poster). It's a really great game and students go crazy for it so I want to modify it and use it for other lessons but I can't change the pictures as I can't locate them in the PPT. (You'll understand when you look at the PPT). I just don't have a clue how to do it or indeed if it can be done.

So, I was wondering if someone can help.

I've attached the PPT so if someone could just try to change the pictures. They seem to be embedded in the file somehow.

Thanks guys.... :D

So I checked it, and all the pictures are sitting on the slides.  Perhaps you are opening the PowerPoint as "read only".  That is the only thing I can think of from the description of the problem.

Hi Daejeon,

Ya, I read the instructions in the PPT properly and I now know how to change the pictures. I was just being an idiot.

Thanks for the prompt response. Keep up the good work...

Hi Daejeon,

I downloaded your Starcraft bomb game template from here and I thought the sounds were really cool so I was hoping I could use them elsewhere.

I found the PPT attached on the Elementary Grade 6 Lesson 10 "I'm stronger than you" thread (thanks to plaswuff for that one) and I am planning to use it this week. However, I thought the PPT would be much cooler if there was sound to go with it so I was hoping I could use the sound that begins when you open slide 7 (for example) of your Starcraft game. I want to attach the sound to all of the slides in the PPT attached below but I don't have the sound file and even if I did I'm not confident that I'd be able to attach it correctly.

Would appreciate your thoughts on this and whether you can help me out.

Thanks again for all ur hard work. 

Daejeon

Here you are.  I have lost the original sound file, so I am unable to attach a riff header to the mp3, making the file size is enormous.
