Course Description

 Many people have been subjected to boring generic PowerPoint presentations. The content was good but the slides were bland or difficult to read. No one wants their presentation to be poorly received because of weak PowerPoint production skills. In this session, we detail some best practices to consider when creating a PowerPoint presentation; some of these include font size, the use of color, the over or under use of animations or slide transitions, and consistency throughout a presentation. We then highlight features that help users adhere to these practices such as the Slide Master, Animations, Transitions, and Headers/Footers. Finally, we show tools to help make a presentation “pop”, including SmartArt, Screenshots/Screen Clippings, and Themes. Take this session to help make sure your PowerPoint skills are strong enough – that way your presentations can hit their mark!
