Videos are fast emerging as one of the highly effective online media to train employees. But developing them takes a lot of time and effort. You may require multimedia developers and software tools to create them. What if I say videos can be developed very easily using just PowerPoint? Finding it hard to believe? But it’s true.

In this blog post, I’ll share 5 simple steps that’ll help you develop engaging, cost-effective videos without any animation experts or software. All you need is PowerPoint.

Let’s see how the magic works.

Step 1:

First, develop the presentation using the default animations and designs present in PowerPoint. Make sure the design suits the video environment.

Step 2:

Go to the Insert tab from the Menu and click the Audio dropdown and select the Audio from File option. This opens a window where the audio file is present. Select the desired audio file and click the Insert button.

Step 2

Click the Audio dropdown

Note: Audio will be inserted in the slide, then move the media file out of the slide stage.

Step 3:

Click the Transitions tab and uncheck the On Mouse Click option (if checked already). Now specify the time limit for the current slide.

Repeat Step 3 for all the slides except the final slide.
