essentials

Learn how to create a simple, effective slide show presentation using Microsoft PowerPoint.  This beginning class will cover all of the basics including adding clip art and shapes to your slides, editing text, using the efficient outline mode to brainstorm your ideas, and using a professionally-created template to add the final touch.  Participants will also learn how to easily save their slides to a CD for distribution.  If requested, the instructor can also show participants how to use their specific model of projector and laptop to show a presentation.  (Recommended Time: 2 Hours)

making slides look great

After you've learned the essential features of PowerPoint, take your slide design skills to the next level and master the use of font, paragraph, and shape formatting. We'll cover how to control and customize text bullets, alter margins and line spacing, and all kinds of other features that will help you fine-tune your slides for maximum impact.

Other topics include the best practices when copying and pasting from Excel, adding annotations (text, arrows, circles, etc.) and animating them, and techniques on keeping it simple.

mastering the delivery

Not everyone does great in front of an audience, but this class can help. Attendees will learn everything they need to deliver a great slideshow in front of an audience using PowerPoint's delivery features. We'll cover Presenter Mode (which is like a cheat-sheet for speakers), online delivery tips, the use of remote controls, special keystrokes, and other technical tips and best practices. We'll also review Public Speaking 101 and talk about what makes an effective delivery, touching on confidence, audience participation, goal-setting, and more.
