By including a webpage on a Microsoft PowerPoint slide, you are able to share information in a more creative way. Also, the information is up to date, since it’s linked to a webpage.
- [Instructor] Another option that's popular with presentations is to add a webpage. After all, the web has become a primary way that we communicate up to date information. So it's logical that you might want to drop a webpage right into a PowerPoint presentation. To do this, launch your web browser, and then visit a webpage. In this case, we'll go to pmi.org for the Project Management Institute. The homepage is loaded. Now let's go back to PowerPoint here and we'll select the target zone, and I'll select, insert and choose screenshot. Now you may see some recent windows and if you don't see the web browser, just go to screen clipping where you can make a selection for what you want to include. And you see that it drops it into the presentation. Now let me copy this link here, I'll just highlight the text and copy that to my clipboard, and now we can hyperlink both of these. With that text selected, I'll choose to add a link here, insert link, and we can choose to link to additional content. Let's go to browse pages for example here, or I can just type it in, HTTP://www.pmi.org. Let's copy that and click, okay, there's the link. And I'll do the same thing here. Let's add a link and you see that the recent items are available so I'll just choose that again. And now that's selected. Now when we're giving our presentation, this is really cool. When we are on this slide and we click, it's going to trigger a link and open up that webpage. So in the middle of our presentation, we can quickly switch to a live web view. This works really well for a couple of reasons. First, if I'm in the middle of a presentation, I can easily show a recent screenshot of the website, even if I'm not online. But if I am online, I can click and make that jump over. Additionally, if you export options like PDF or other shareable items from this PowerPoint presentation, the links remain. So your audience can follow up with subsequent web visits.
