    Hello, I'm not sure if this power point is working. I can't see how it is interactive as the answers are already given and there is no opportunity to interact with the power point

      Hi Bel This PowerPoint is interactive and contains features such as slide transitions and animations that will only be apparent when the presentation is viewed in ‘slideshow’ mode. Viewing/showing the presentation in the slide editing mode may give the impression that the PowerPoint contains errors such as the slides being incorrectly ordered, text overlapping or images appearing faulty. Slide Show mode is accessed by selecting ‘Slide Show’ from the top menu bar, or by clicking the Slide Show icon on the bottom toolbar.
