Instead of just giving your students a copy of the slides in your training presentation, why not give them a copy of the slide show? That way, they can navigate from slide to slide at their own pace. To prepare an interactive slide show for viewing online, follow these steps:

  1. Go to Slide Show | Set Up Show. (In Office 2007, click the Slide Show tab and then click Set Up Slide Show in the Set Up group.)
  2. Under Show Type, click the Browsed By An Individual (Window), as shown in Figure A.
  3. Click OK.

Now when your students view the show, they can move through the presentation using the scroll bar or the up-and-down navigation buttons in the right-hand corner of each slide (Figure B).
