Course Description

Microsoft PowerPoint is the de facto presentation software for people who want to create slideshows. PowerPoint 2019 is used in many different scenarios, including business presentations, sales presentations, academic lectures, student projects, and even for families documenting vacations and special events. If you have an idea you want to present in front of an audience, PowerPoint is your go-to solution. This course will teach you how to use all the major features of Microsoft PowerPoint so that you can create dynamic and engaging presentations.
 
With this course, you'll learn how to...
 
  • Navigate the PowerPoint interface
  • Create new presentations from scratch – or by using beautiful templates
  • Add text, pictures, sounds, movies, and charts to your presentations
  • Format the objects that you add to your presentations
  • Design slides using themes, colors, and special effects
  • Animate objects on slides to bring them to life.
  • Add special effects to slide transitions to spice up your presentations
  • Work with Master Slides to make editing your presentation easy
  • Set up slide shows and rehearse timings for your slides
  • Collaborate easier than before using PowerPoint
  • And much more! 

The first part of the course focuses on working with slides and the ways that users can create and customize layouts. Objects make up the content seen in a slideshow presentation, so we cover step-by-step how to add and edit text, images, shapes, diagrams, graphs and charts. These objects are common in PowerPoint presentations, so they will make up a majority of your slides.

We'll then show you how to add these objects and customize them using themes and colors. Charts and tables display information to viewers, and we will show you how to set up these objects to accurately convey numbers and data to potentials customers.

We also explore themes, so that you can stylize your layouts and objects. Themes contain predesigned color schemes, but you can also create your own themes that match your preferences. In additional, we'll learn about styles, transitions and animations. For example, we'll cover the ways that you can animate your presentations to make them more appealing to your audience.

Finally, we will review how to print and share slides. Microsoft Office includes OneDrive for file sharing and collaboration. This course takes you from building attractive, compelling presentations to sharing and collaborating with other users. You can then successfully build slides tailored to your target audience.
 
With clear and concise step-by-step directions, beautifully illustrated lessons with screenshots, and HD Video tutorials, this PowerPoint 2019 online course will teach you everything you need to know to become a PowerPoint presenter and power user.
 
You do not need access to PowerPoint software in order to successfully complete this course, although it is strongly recommended in order to follow along with the course examples.
