Go from boring and plain presentations to something that makes people sit up and pay attention — how to effectively use PowerPoint 2013
Have you seen someone deliver a PowerPoint presentation that was well done? Do you remember the difference it made – not only in helping you understand the content, but the way it made you feel about the presenter? This course shows you how to turn lackluster presentations into something that is visually stimulating and works to keep your audience engaged. Microsoft PowerPoint is the most common tool used for presentations in the workplace.
This course teaches the most frequently used PowerPoint features and introduces some of the more advanced options. This course will help turn your PowerPoint presentation from “ho hum” into something special that captures your audience’s attention. Once you have a solid grasp of the basics in the “getting started” section, you quickly move to tables, charts, smart graphics, photo manipulation, video manipulation, slide animation, and more. While the instructor provides opinions on the best uses of PowerPoint, this course focuses on using the functions embedded in PowerPoint.
PowerPoint’s best practices are covered in the Bigger Brains course called Power Up PowerPoint. In this training course presentation experts, Kelly Vandever and Maren Reaves, will walk you through all the features you need to know with Microsoft PowerPoint 2013.
Topics covered include:
This course also covers all the objectives included in the Microsoft Office Specialist 77-883 exam.
