GetConnected hosts Mike Agerbo and AJ Vickery take a look at some of the cool things you can do with PowerPoint 2010.
For even more information, check out what's new in PowerPoint 2010. And If you know PowerPoint 2007, used an earlier version of PowerPoint, or have never used PowerPoint before, take a look at Getting started with PowerPoint 2010 to begin learning how to use the latest version.

This is great info. When it comes to embedding, how would you embed a PPT file (File A) into another PPT file (File B) and then make changes to File A and have it auto-populate in File B?
You can save the PPT as a video and then embed it as you would any other video but you wouldn't be able to edit the video dynamically. You'd have to reinsert a video that was updated.
Or, you can add presentation A into presentation B and present it as a custom show. For more information about custom shows, see: office.microsoft.com/.../create-and-present-a-custom-show-HA010338296.aspx
Does this help?
Erin, this link might be useful to you as well: msmvps.com/.../embedding-powerpoint-in-a-powerpoint.aspx
Thanks Joy and Eric for your feedback. I do however need the ability to make changes to embedded slides. I'm at a point now where I can embed an entire PPT into another PPt presentation, but not a single slide from a deck (which is the ideal scenario).
Also, it seems that if I update an ebmedded slide I can't just save those changes *only* to the deck its embedded in (rather it updates the deck that the embedded slide came from as well). I suppose this makes sense :) I'm thinking perhaps I can't get the scenario I'm looking for, but really appreciate your pointers to resources.
Can you explain what you are trying to accomplish in more detail. Actual scenario. Maybe that'll help us help you. :-)
Did he REALLY say "such a great tool for getting your message across"? Yup, Bill, just hand me that ole wrench and we'll just tighten her up. Geez. PowerPoint is a very good tool for a good presenter but like most "make it easy" tools it is generally so poorly used that it gets in the way of getting the message across. Most PPT presenters should shut their computers down and learn to have conversations.
These guys sounds like Julia Child cooks a PowerPoint Holiday Dinner!
