Course Description

The purpose of this course is to help you understand what PowerPoint 2007 can do for you, whether you are familiar with PowerPoint 2003 or new to the application altogether. One of the most noticeable changes is the new user interface called the Microsoft Office Fluent which allows for the creation of dynamic, professional presentations in a much shorter period of time than earlier versions of PowerPoint. The Fluent interface has all commands, toolbars and task panes categorized into tabs and related groups. For the purpose of this course, we will call the Fluent user interface the "ribbon."
 


In general, the Ribbon tabs are separated into three levels (see corresponding numbers in Figure 0.1):
  1. The general type of task (i.e., Home)
  2. Categories of sub-tasks (i.e., Slides)
  3. Specific commands (i.e., New Slide)
Figure 0.2 shows the Insert Tab, which displays PowerPoint 2007's larger, easier to read icons along with an overall view of the application's new look.
 

Among the many new options offered by PowerPoint 2007 are new themes and quick styles, custom slide layouts, Smart Art graphics, more advanced graphic effects for text, pictures, objects, charts, graphs and tables, more effective proofing tools, user-friendly collaboration and permission features, and much more. This course will walk you through PowerPoint 2007, beginning with the basics and lead you through to some of the most advanced features available, offering additional helpful tips and hints along the way.

Course Structure

This course is broken down into twelve lessons  to take you through each of the tools that PowerPoint 2007 offers the user.  Each lesson will cover learning goals and each goal is associated with one aspect of PowerPoint 2007.  You will be able to confirm your knowledge and understanding through a series of mini quizzes at the end of each Lesson.  Answers to the quiz are at the back of this course.  We recommend that you practice with PowerPoint 2007 to gain the best understanding of each lesson.

Each lesson will also include hyperlinks for you to find further information online along with hot tips.   As with all software, not everything runs smoothly all the time in PowerPoint 2007 and in each lesson we will also alert you to common errors or "pitfalls" to watch out for.

Before you begin:

 


  If you are a current user of Microsoft Office PowerPoint 2003 or an earlier version, before you download 2007 we recommend you uninstall these programs.  PowerPoint 2007 may not download properly if you are operating a previous version.

 

 
While this course is aimed at both beginners and advanced users, we take for granted that you already know how to turn your computer on, use your mouse and can understand in basic terms how to operate your computer.

  • "I felt this instructor was well organized and timely. I've taken on-line courses which were too easy. For instance, I recently took one which was supposed to take 14 months to complete and I finished it as quickly as I received the course work...I actually found the exams the most helpful. They were used for exactly what exams are supposed to be for, i.e., to test knowledge and give feedback on what needs to be reviewed. The exams were fun to take. I also enjoyed the assignments to test in a practical way what was being presented....I felt this instructor was well organized and timely. I've taken on-line courses which were too easy.
