Simple countdown timers lack creativity so download for free the following set of bright visual timers for Powerpoint.
Instructions for use
Save the downloaded file to your hard drive or perhaps to desktop where it may be easier to locate and is immediately accessible during lessons. You will receive a zipfile format. Simply click to open and click on the timer selected. There is no need to open in Powerpoint because the file will automatically open Powerpoint for you. Depending how fast your computer this this will take a few seconds. The timers are fixed and the times cannot be altered to protect them from adjustments that might compromise their appearance or functionality. However you can control time by simply pressing your back and forward keys to either slow down or speed up. The length of each timer is specified on the previous page alongside the thumbnail of each timer. Should you ever encounter a password box simply click on 'read only' to access. When ready to run place your cursor over the Collegenet logo and click once. Some of the timers may not appear to operate at first ( like the Sunflower) but if you wait they will whereas others will burst into life immediately like, as the name suggests, Cascade. Press escape to exit at any time.
