Creating Presentations

The guide to creating and recording presentations.

Save As Video

This is a really simple process if you are using PowerPoint on a Windows computer:

  1. Click on File
  2. Click Export
  3. Choose Create a Video
  4. Use the timer option to set the amount of time each slide will appear

You may also want to record your narration. To do this, you will need a microphone. The microphone that is built into your computer may suffice or you may want to use an external microphone, such as those on in-ear cell phone headphones. For best results, you will want a quality microphone, which are available for checkout from the HSU Library’s Digital Media Lab. Stop by the front desk of the library to ask about USB plug and play microphones or a digital recorders.
