After opening the file, watch the tutorial. Then, you may begin. When finished, save your file in your Document. Then save for Mrs. Merk. (Google Drive Folder = "Digital Literacy"). A Little About ME.pptx
Optional... Record an introduction in the first slide! For Example: "Hi My Name is Mrs. Merk! I am a teacher at Algonquin Middle School. I hope you enjoy learning a little about me!" When recording audio...don't have the microphone over your mouth! See Examples Below! :)
NOT RIGHT... The microphone is too close to my mouth, so it will sound like a wind tunnel!
STILL NOT RIGHT!... The microphone is right under my nose, so it will STILL sound like a wind tunnel.
JUST RIGHT!!!! ^_^... The microphone is just above my nose, almost at eye level. It will pick up my voice with less background noise.
But...My Microphone Isn't Working!!!!
First, I would check the plugs. When you carefully unplug by holding the plastic part, check the stripes on the end of the plug.
RED = Microphone BLACK = Headset
You may have to switch. Additionally, check the switch on your cord! (see below)
<-- See this little thing on the cord?
Turn to one side and there is a scroll bar. Scroll it up...maybe someone left the sound all the way down before this class.
Flip to the other side, see this switch? Make sure it is up (farthest from the picture). That switch turns on your microphone.
