How do you grab and maintain an audience's focus when you're asked to present important information? By being clear, organized, and engaging. And, that is exactly what Microsoft PowerPoint can help students do. Today's audiences are tech savvy, accustomed to high-impact multimedia content, and stretched for time. By learning how to use the vast array of features and functionality contained within PowerPoint, students will gain the ability to organize their content, enhance it with high-impact visuals, and deliver it with a punch. In this course, students will use PowerPoint to begin creating engaging, dynamic multimedia presentations.
Note: Most Office 365 users perform the majority of their daily tasks using the desktop version of the Office software, so that is the focus of this training. The course material will also enable students to access and effectively utilize many web-based resources provided with their Office 365 subscription. This includes brief coverage of key skills for using PowerPoint for the Web and OneDrive. Helpful notes throughout the material alert students to cases where the online version of the application may function differently from the primary, desktop version. This course covers Microsoft Office Specialist Program exam objectives to help students prepare for the PowerPoint Associate (Office 365 and Office 2019): Exam MO-300.
