Yes, you can take your word document and copy/paste it to make a PowerPoint
presentation. You mentioned a non-linear presentation. Again, yes, this is
very do-able with PowerPoint. It's a matter of making hyperlinks to slides
within the PowerPoint presentation, instead of to websites. One uses either
words, images or icons as a 'base' for the hyperlinks. In this manner, the
PowerPoint presentation will operate/navigate more like a web site or
HyperStudio presentation. I have my 7th grade computer arts students do a
big PowerPoint presentation about themselves, which includes a hyperlinked
table of contents. The table of contents allows viewers to jump to any
slide in the presentation.
You also mentioned seeing PowerPoint presentations on the web. Again, this
is actually pretty easy. In PowerPoint, there is an option under File>Save
As> that will let it be saved in a webpage format. (It was easier to do
(for me) with PowerPoint 97 but, now I do it with PowerPoint 2000.) Then
the web pages are uploaded to a host on the internet. Your school or
district's webmaster can help you with this.

I've ran across a couple of slide shows on the web
that looked like they had been created using
powerpoint while doing research. Have any of you
I'm about to backtrack from the current flow of talk
and ask about a question I previously had about
I had to create a webquest in Word for a course. At
the time it was my first experience with the concept
and I liked it, but now I really dislike the format
and wonder if, as long as the steps are there (Intro,
task, process, resources, evaluation, conclusion) -Can
it be created in powerpoint or hyperstudio? I like
the layout of the "page" that can be created so much
better, but wasn't sure if this word be an acceptable
way to present the activity. I think what I'm
referring to is considered a non-linear presentation.
