This 8-video course explores how to use animation to create a visually interesting presentation by using PowerPoint for Office 365. Learners can observe how to add animations to objects in slides, including shapes, images, and text boxes. You will also learn how to customize animations, to change how animation is activated, and to modify it. This course demonstrates how to use the Animations tab to add sounds, color, and text effects to your animations. You will learn to use the Create Animation tool to create a custom path animation or to insert a motion path animation from the Animation gallery. This course continues by demonstrating how the Master View can add animations to most or all of your presentation, without having to re-create the same animation multiple times, and how to use the Animation Painter to apply the same animation to multiple objects. You will learn to create transitions between slides. Finally, observe how to add smoother, more dynamic video-like transitions to your presentations by adding a Morph transition to your slides.
