What is Adobe Presenter?
by John Myers

Adobe Presenter is an add-on for Microsoft PowerPoint. It allows you to synchronize your PowerPoint slides with audio and video and output them in the Web-friendly PDF format. Presenter takes your slides and puts them in a professional looking PDF file complete with built in branding and navigation. These PDF files are great for standalone presentations, web presentations, distribution on DVD's and in course management systems.

Here at ETCS we have created eight Presenter presentations that demonstrate how to build your own presentations, (see: The introduction module demonstrates some of the simple things you can do. We then go on to the anatomy of a Presenter presentation and the installation instructions of the software. The last five modules show you how to brand your presentations, add audio, video and quizzes to your presentation, and finally how to publish your presentation. Most modules take less than 5 minutes to view.

The software is extremely easy to use. We are confident that after viewing the above modules you will have the knowledge needed to create your own. If you have questions or problems feel free to contact ETCS for help.

Adobe Presenter comes with Adobe Acrobat Pro 9 Extended for low University pricing of $71/computer. If you would like to purchase a copy of the software, please email John Myers with the number of copies you want and the MOcode you want charged.
