Can be used as an animated-graphic slide within a PPT presentation about avoiding plagiarism (PPT must be in Slide-Show mode to activate the slow animation) or as a non-animated graphic in a handout; can be resized as needed. Note: You can pause an animated GIF during a PowerPoint Slide Show by Right-Clicking your mouse; you can resume animation with a Left-Click. This mouse-trick works in PPT 2010, but other PPT versions may work differently.
