Audiences are all too familiar with PowerPoint slide decks having the usual titles, headings, bullets and stock photos – so it can be a real eye-opener to experience a presentation with custom transitions, animations, and embedded videos! This class will take your slide decks to that “next level.”

Customizations. PowerPoint not only lets you customize the Ribbon buttons, but everything on the page itself, including the design elements: the background, headers, footers, and related templates like the Notes and Handouts “Master” slides.

Audio, Video, Animations. Imagine punctuating a point in your presentation with an audio clip from the poet Robert Frost, or a video of your CEO demonstrating a new product. Audio and video can add life to your slides, but they require production and editing. Animations are a less resource-intensive alternative to add zest to your presentations – and they’re not as hard as you might think.

Review and Delivery. With Microsoft OneDrive, you can save your presentation to the cloud and collaborate with your coworkers on revisions. For your own prep, you can annotate your presentations, rehearse timings, and record and replay your presentation narration.

Tips and Tricks. We’ll cover a few of the biggest bang-for-buck features available in PowerPoint, such as Action Buttons for navigating a slideshow delivery; zooming in to see larger images; customizing slideshows for beginner vs. advanced audiences, and more.
