WorldSkill Competition - PPT Experience

Published Sat, Apr 8 2006 9:25

Finished my WorldSkill Compeition yesterday. For most of you who don't know, I represented my school to take part in a WorldSkill Competition. It was a national qualifying round. It wasn't easy, even for the PowerPoint part. Basically, you are given instructions either to create something new, or edit from existing materials given. You are only given 1 and a half hour to complete the questions given.

On the PowerPoint part, there are so many animations to add which almost kills the machine itself. One of the slides I remembered, was asking you to add a star beside a Venn Diagram with 5 shapes. That is to say, you will need to add 5 stars. The colors of each star must be similar to the color for each of the shapes in the venn diagram. Hence, if you are unaware of the "Pick Up Object Style" command, you will probably spend a lot on time on finding the color itself!

Then, the stars must change color temporary when you hover over them. If you click any of the stars, the one being clicked will go around a text which is beside the shape. If you click anywhere on the slide and not the star, the stars move out the slide until they disappear. While on other slides, I learnt how to play around with some blind effects.

Below are two attachments of the samples I have made after my competition. They are in zip format. Download and unzip them:
