Join Jess Stratton for an in-depth discussion in this video Presenting your slides and adding annotations, part of Office for iPad and iPhone Essential Training.
Its easy to present on the iPad. To present from PowerPoint for iPad, tap on the slide show ribbon tab. And now you can decide whether you want to start the show from the beginning, in which case you can tap from start or from the current slide that you're on. You can also start a presentation by tapping on the projector icon at the far right-hand side. Once your presentation starts, the gestures are simple. To move to the next slide, swipe to the left. To move to the previous slide, swipe to the right.
I'm going to swipe more time to go to that best sellers slide. Because there's something I want to show you. You can add live annotations to your presentation. I'm going to swipe down from the top of the iPad. This is going to bring up a menu. The first thing I can do, is abruptly end the slide show by tapping end slide show on the top left-hand side. But I'm more interested right now in the top right-hand side. The first thing I'm going to do is choose the color in which I want to annotate the slides with. So, I'm going to tap on the gear icon with a pen in the middle.
This is going to bring me to pen settings. I can choose a thick red one in which I can circle some line items here. And then I can tap it again and choose a thinner one. This one's good for maybe an arrow or to circle a certain figure. If you want to get rid of them altogether, you can tap that gear again and tap clear all. This will remove all annotations from the slide. To get back to your slide show, simply tap off of the pen icon. And now you can continue swiping as normal. When you're done with your presentation at the very end, you'll be told you're at the end.
And swipe one more time, and you'll be brought back. Now you can continue editing your presentation and working on it, and starting again whenever you feel like you need to go through your presentation.

Q: This course was updated on 11/07/2014. What changed?
A: We added new movies and updated existing ones to include the new Word, Excel, and PowerPoint apps for iPhone as well as discuss Dropbox integration. While most of the course was filmed on an iPad, the apps work very similarly on both the iPad and iPhone. Also check out the Office for iPhone First Look course to explore which editing features are available to all users and which require an Office 365 subscription.
