Microsoft PowerPoint 2010 Tutorial

This VTC course will provide students with the knowledge and skills to use Microsoft PowerPoint 2010 for creating and making presentations. The course moves from a study of the PowerPoint interface through creating presentations, and where possible, reusing content already created. Participants will learn how to add smart art objects, images, drawings and charts to slides as well as importing an editing audio and video content.

The course author, Helen Bradley, teaches Microsoft PowerPoint from a business perspective, introducing tools that can be used to ensure that PowerPoint presentations are consistently formatted and so that, when changes are made, the changes flow seamlessly through the presentation. Topics included within the course: formatting data in tables, using the photo album tool, working with multimedia objects and properly preparing your slide show for presentation. Work files are included. To begin learning today, simply click on the movie links.
