Having a course with no timeline?

Is there a way to setup a course where there is no timeline? What I mean by this is making a course much like PowerPoint where a slide can stay on the screen indefinitely until the user clicks something to advance the slide versus having the slide advance after a certain amount of time.

Is there a way to change this globally per course instead of having to change settings on each slide? And is there a way to change this per slide?

By default slides should advance 'By User'. However, if you are importing a PowerPoint (at least for me), it automatically advances the slides every 5 seconds. The simplest way I've found to change this is from Story View; highlight every slide. Then under Slide Properties, change Slide Advances to 'By User'. It will then change it for every slide that was highlighted. Hope this helps :)
