Delivery & Duration

General Outline

This course focuses on the basics of PowerPoint but goes beyond to discuss presentation issues as well. PowerPoint should complement and enhance, not totally takeover, your presentation.

As such, the course also covers important design aspects, such as what colour schemes to use, and the types of backgrounds and fonts that are most effective. An important aspect of PowerPoint we cover that many people do not use is its ability to help you plan, create and edit the content (i.e., text) of your presentation.

Also, we will cover the types of special effects, bullet builds and slide transitions that will make your presentation more effective and your message more long-lasting. Any previous presentations you have can be brought in so that we can make suggestions on how to improve them.

Detailed Content

By the end of this course, participants will be able to:

  • Describe the PowerPoint screen.
  • Create a text outline of the presentation.
