I'm a Professor. I have not imagined to teach programming through animation. I usually teach codes by simulating them step by step, but that involves serious imaginations and follow up from students. Upon seeing the introduction lecture, I was amazed. He explains how hard a micro controller programming can be for newbies, to understand. As well as he teaches the same with animation to demonstrate how it can be taught easily through animations. I know animation in powerpoint but I didn't know Motion path animations and how to use it to teach programming concepts. Pure brilliance. Though I knew animations, I didn't know animation painter, timeline feature etc. There is lot to learn in this course. He is going step by step in each lectures and so very easy to follow. - Ms Celia Garcia
The Instructor's presentation style includes video demonstrations for each project. The step-by-step visual demonstrations along with the downloadable resources make doing the projects on our own much easier. Having PowerPoint open so you can duplicate what the instructor is doing also helps in remembering what you are learning. Good Course for those who want to add 3D shapes and Animation to their presentations. - Autumn Gal
This course is well-organized. The lectures are interesting and each slide represents advanced PowerPoint techniques.

Effect options - Ordered / unordered lists effects - explained
You will learn, 'how to change the appearance of an object or a text in a text box, after the end of an animation
Normally we may require a shape to enter one way and exit in another way. Or we may wish to emphasize the text after it appears in the slide. To do this we should know to assign multiple animation effects to a single object and to reorder them
PowerPoint has an inbuilt feature to add preset sounds or external sounds to animations
For example, you want want a description of a picture to appear, when you click on that particular picture. To do that you should know about trigger options in PowerPoint
Instead of editing and customizing animations through timing options, every animation can easily be customized using graphical, advanced animation timeline

I have started my professional journey in the year of 2007 by joining Bachelors degree in the stream of Bio-Medical. I am more passionate about learning the functions and anatomy of human body and at the same time I had an interest on designing some devices which could assist human. So my combined passion on electronics and medical field made me choose Biomedical Engineering.
During my course of study I have presented more papers and projects and also rewarded for the same. It encouraged me to specialize myself more. So then, I have decided to master myself in what I did and joined my Masters degree in Applied Electronics. For my out-standing academic performance in PG course, I was awarded the University 28th Rank. Also I have Published three Papers in National conference and published two papers in International Journal.
As a master I should be able to learn and teach the world about what I know and so moved a step ahead and decided to explore more. I joined as an Assistant Professor in Velalar College of Engineering and Technology. During my 2+ years of experience I involved myself in learning process along with teaching process. I started specializing myself in certain areas where I can find opportunities to groom my knowledge.
My specializations are Microprocessor, Micro controller, Proteus and mIKRO C programming, Hardware - Software co-design and Medical Electronics.
My software expertise are Microsoft PowerPoint and Excel.
I feel I am best and comfortable when I teach others what I have learn. I feel myself fresh when I am appreciated for my work.
I felt that my knowledge and specializations should not end up within a small circle and so now I am before you as an instructor to share my expertise. Hope I will prove myself in the courses I offer.
