How to Create Image Revealing Effects in PowerPoint

On Wednesday I published a short video about how to create image revealing effects in Google Slides. Shortly afterwards a viewer emailed me with a question about doing something similar in PowerPoint. I was happy to help by recording this new video to demonstrate how to create image revealing effects in PowerPoint. 

Creating an image revealing effect in PowerPoint is basically a matter of layering images then using the animation tools to set the sequence in which an image is removed from a slide when it is clicked. Watch the video that is embedded below to see how that's done.

Applications for Education
Using the image revealing effect could be a good way to create a series of quiz game slides. On each slide you can have a question for which the answer is hidden until you click on the slide to reveal the answer. That could be a fun way to host an in-classroom review game that is kind of like Jeopardy.

ICYMI - The Grand Finale of Two Ed Tech Guys Take Questions Live

On Tuesday evening Rushton Hurley and I hosted the final live presentation of Two Ed Tech Guys Take Questions and Share Cool Stuff. We'll be back in 2023 with a similar series but not in a live format. If you missed our final live episode on Tuesday evening, you can now watch the recording right here. And all of the recordings from 2020 through today are available here on Next Vista for Learning. On that same page you'll also find lists of the resources that we've shared over throughout three seasons of the show.
