Microsoft PowerPoint: PowerPoint Power


Note: This is a combination soft and technical skills class; basic experience in Microsoft Office is required.

You’ll create your own PowerPoint presentation and template to help with your branding and customization of PowerPoint.

We’ll learn the new interface including the Ribbon, the Tabs, and other important new elements. As we build our presentation, we’ll learn how to present using PowerPoint’s slide show options and create interactive slides with the web and other applications. Our slides will include: Charts, Diagrams, Photos, Clip Art, Text, Bullets and Numbers, Tables, Sound, and Movies.

We’ll discuss the importance of color, animation, and presenting with PowerPoint. You’ll not only learn how to create a dynamic PowerPoint presentation from scratch but also how to present your presentation like a pro.
