This ILT Series course covers the basic functions and features of PowerPoint. After an introduction to PowerPoint’s window components, students will open and run a presentation and switch between views. They’ll create a basic presentation and add content; arrange, insert, and delete slides; and apply templates and design themes. Then, they’ll learn how to create and edit shapes, insert and modify WordArt objects and pictures, and work with tables, charts, and diagrams. Finally, they’ll learn how to proof a presentation, create speaker notes, and present and share their presentations.
