Guest post by Dave Ludwig, a senior writer on the Office PowerPoint team.
Back in the day, clear and concise text was the key to a good presentation. But the game has changed. People expect your slides to dance. Well, not really dance, but they certainly expect some animation here and there.
That's why we've added two new lessons on PowerPoint animations to our PowerPoint skills builder--a free video training series. Here's what you'll learn:
Lesson 1: Animations and transitions
Lesson 2: Going further with animations
Take a look. And if you have a minute, let us know what you think in the comments section.

Funny thing is that between now and 2 weeks I have to do a presentation to (more visually) explain to some customers why I think that Office 365 might be beneficial for them. Now, I have some (minor) PowerPoint experience, know my way around Office 2010 pretty well yet still; this was a welcome surprise. Thanks for sharing!
I really enjoyed the video's. Easy to follow, good to understand and also fairly easy to reproduce the effects yourself. It actually helped me to "get with the program" a little more so to speak.
Still,there is one thing working "against" you and that's PowerPoint itself; its quite easy to catch on! This someone surprised me, but the ribbon as well as the way its been setup really make it easy and fun to work with (in my opinion obviously).
For example... When I wanted to animate an object it was easy to pick up the "shapes" option on the Start tab. Once I had my object the 'animation' tab (as showed quite well in your video's) is also easily found. Then its simple; either select a pre-determined animation or click "add animation".
In the end I wanted to make a round shape "roll" to the other end of the slide. I managed this myself after having only watched your first video! This wasn't me being so smart (although I like to say it is of course) but purely PowerPoint which presents you with all the options you need and where you need them (in my case 1 object with 2 animations (move & roll) which run at the same time).
And the best part (IMO) is the logical way in which things work throughout Office. For example; the "animation copier" may sound complex, but once you've used the more standard "Layout copy" option (available in Word, Excel and obviously PowerPoint) then copying animations suddenly becomes a lot more common. Basically its not that much different from copying layouts.
Alas, needless to say but I really enjoyed watching and following your presentations. Thanks again for sharing!
Well, I was in need of this article. I just started doing animations and you free training will definitely helpful for me. I am sure I will learn how to create PowerPoint animations. Thanks for this article.
