PowerPoint 201 - Advanced Design and Organization - 0.1 credits
Registration is now closed (this event already took place).
There is slight overlap with the PowerPoint 101 class, in that tips and tricks will be reviewed and incorporated wherever possible; however, this class is focused more on organizational and in-depth design techniques. So, if you know how to do the basics in PowerPoint, but want to add that little extra "umph" to your presentations, this is a class for you.
This hands-on workshop will focus on adding "bells and whistles" to your presentation. Most of the material covered is not difficult to do, but simply "buried" in the software. It is always the little extra touches that make you stand out. For example, we will build our own templates from scratch. Do you know where to get cool backgrounds for your slides and use them in your presentations? Can you bring in an outline done in another application? Do you know what "branching" or action buttons are and how to create them? We will also look more closely at bringing in an Excel chart and MS Graph (PowerPoint's application for charting). We will look at tools to help you arrange your presentation quickly and efficiently. Some basic strategies for organizing common business presentations will be reviewed and incorporated into the presentation that is created in class. For example, one place many presentations fail is in the use of effective titling, what is the best way to transition from one topic to the next?
You must already be very comfortable using PowerPoint in order to participate in this workshop and PowerPoint 101 is highly recommended for those not already familiar with PowerPoint.
Students need to bring their laptop with PowerPoint 2013 installed and their wireless internet connection enabled.
