OpenOffice 3.1 Impress Introduction [ID:890]

a series of video-tutorials by Ian Ozsvald

Create your first Impress presentation using OpenOffice's PowerPoint-like presentation system.

Video Tutorials

1. Series Overview in 2 minutes (OpenOffice 3.1 Impress)

See what we cover in this Impress tutorial. Take a quick look at the finished 3-page presentation which includes a title page, a bullet-point list and a page containing an image.

2. Making slides

Here we create two slides. First we make a bullet-point list of text (the basics of a presentation!), next we make a title slide. Having created our slide we try several ways of stepping forwards and backwards through it in Presentation mode.

3. Images & Transitions

Finally we create a third slide which includes an image. We add a transition for this slide and animate the image.

Showmedo is a peer-produced video-tutorials and screencasts site for free and open-source software (FOSS)- with the exception of some club videos, the large majority are free to watch and download.

Educating the Open-source Community With Showmedo

Although as important as the software it supports, education and documentation are relatively neglected in the Open-source world. Coders love to code, and explaining how best to use or improve the software tends to be deferred or even sidelined.

At Showmedo we believe the community can play a vital role here and also say thanks for the tools and software that make our lives easier. If you have a piece of software you love or a programming langugage you are enthusiastic about, why not make a screencast showing others how to use it? All the stuff you wish you'd been told, the tips, tricks, insights that would have saved you time and frustration.

Screencasting is easier than you think, and we're happy to help you. You can emailus for advice or just use some of the how-to screencasts on the site. This screencasting learning-pathis a good place to start.

Kudos and Thanks for Ian
