In PowerPoint 2010 Essential Training, author David Diskin demonstrates how to engage an audience with images, video, sound, charts, and diagrams in professional presentations. The course also covers a variety of methods to share presentations with others, and provides comprehensive tutorials on how to design presentations that successfully deliver a quality message. Exercise files accompany the course.
To help you follow along on your own computer, I've saved my work for each chapter in video. Whenever an exercise file is available for a video, you'll see a yellow overlay at the bottom of the screen that indicates the location and name of the exercise file, like this. If I've worked with other files, such as photos, video, or Excel spreadsheets, I've collected those together for you in a special folder called Assets. Here on my desktop, you'll see my Exercise Files folder, and inside, one folder for each chapter of the course. Here is that Assets folder I mentioned earlier, and you can see all sorts of supplemental files that I've used to enhance my presentation: photos, Word documents and more. Two quick notes.
All of the exercise files are meant to work with PowerPoint 2010. If you're using a different version, some files may not work properly. In the interest of making the files a quick download, the video that we use in some chapters has been saved at a lower quality. All of these files are available to lynda.com's premium subscribers, and to those who've purchased the DVD. If you aren't a subscriber or don't have the DVD, don't worry. You can still enjoy the videos. But if you've got the exercise files, I suggest you download them on your computer and place them onto your desktop for easy access.

Here are the FAQs that matched your search "" :
Create a Video – This feature converts your presentation into a .WMV file (video) which you can then upload to your own website, YouTube, Facebook, or just about anywhere else. If you upload it to a site like YouTube which permits embedding, you can then copy-and-paste the embed code directly into your own website. It will play when users click the Play button, much like you’ve probably seen on blogs and other websites. This feature includes your voice narration, slide advance timings, and video that you may have included.
Save to Web – This feature uploads your presentation to SkyDrive, a free file-hosting service by Microsoft that you can use for collaboration. You’ll need a Windows Live account first, but once you log in you can create folders and upload files directly from within PowerPoint 2010. Once uploaded, you can provide a public link to the presentation file which can then be added to your website. The presentation will open in visitors’ browsers with forward and back buttons, and they do not need a Windows Live account to view it.
Create PDF/XPS Document – By saving your presentation as a PDF, you can upload the PDF to your website and link to it. Most users will be able to load and watch the PDF presentation, and can advance slides manually. Note that this feature does not permit video, sound, animation, or transitions.
PowerPoint Viewer - A fourth option is to save your presentation as a Show (you’ll find this under the “Save As” menu) which creates a PPSX file. PowerPoint Shows are just like regular presentation files, except PowerPoint opens up in presentation mode to the first slide, and when finished it closes completely. The PPSX file can be uploaded to your website, and linked to. Users with PowerPoint 2007 or later will be able to open the presentation and watch it. For users without PowerPoint 2007 or later, you can provide a second link to the free Microsoft PowerPoint Viewer which they can then install on any Windows machine and watch your presentation.
The first three options discussed above can be started by choosing “Save and Send” from Backstage View (the File menu). Then choose the appropriate option based on your preference.
Note that if your organization has a SharePoint server, and your audience is limited to those with access to SharePoint, you may choose to “Save to SharePoint” instead for an easy, feature-rich solution.
