Microsoft PowerPoint: Foundation of Slideshow Presentations
Team Central Short Courses
Everyone knows how to create a PowerPoint presentation, right? Well erm, you may have used PowerPoint before, but have you used it effectively - probably not!?
In this course, you will learn how to produce slideshow presentations that have visually compelling designs, standardised structure, and consistent formatting. This will mean that it's far easier to add content without everything going "out of line" (Sound familiar?) - but remember, don't overload your presentations, less is more!
By utilising these design principles you will then be able to build on these techniques to use the more advanced features of Microsoft PowerPoint to produce amazing slideshow presentations.
At the completion of this course you should be able to:
Create a new presentation and insert text onto a slide and apply basic formatting
Work with the slide layout placeholders to ensure consistency throughout your presentation
Insert and edit images
Create and work with tables and charts
View and modify slide masters and themes including downloading the University standard PowerPoint template to control Headers and Footers, positioning, background, and fonts for all slides
Use printing features to produce slides, speaker notes, and handouts, etc
This course assumes some knowledge of Microsoft PowerPoint.
If you need help with these skills or are worried in any way whether this is the right course for you please book a place on the Supported IT Self-Study course where you can discuss your requirements and choose the courses you need.
