Microsoft Office PowerPoint 2016 - Foundation

Request more details:

PowerPoint is Microsoft’s powerful and easy-to-use presentation program. This version of PowerPoint incorporates some new features and connectivity options in an effort to make collaboration and production as easy as possible. This course is intended to help all novice computer users get up to speed with PowerPoint quickly. We will cover different features of the interface; show users how to create, save, and present a basic presentation; cover the basics of formatting; and discuss how to add multimedia to a presentation.
This course assumes the user understands the basics of using a Windows-based computer. Participants should be comfortable using the keyboard, mouse, and Start menu. Understanding and experience with printing and using a web browser is an asset, but not required. No previous experience with other versions of Microsoft PowerPoint is necessary.
By the end of this course, users should be comfortable with creating a new presentation, making their presentation look professional and presentable, and saving and presenting their slide show.
