Creating an Interactive Slide - Step 2

When TurningPoint is opened, a non-interactive PowerPoint slide is displayed. To begin, add a title and put your name as the subtitle for the presentation.

All functionality of TurningPoint is accessed through the TurningPoint tab, located on the main PowerPoint ribbon menu bar.

See the image below in which TurningPoint has been selected.
