Event Description

Even though Microsoft PowerPoint is one of the most ubiquitous software packages in the training world, many learning professionals merely scratch the surface of its capabilities. In this fast-paced session, you’ll uncover some of the best features for customizing the look of slides, engaging your audience, and saving you time.

Our facilitator will show us design strategies to move from flying bullet points (which were the height of fashion in 1997!) to instructional animations. In this session, you’ll get into the nuts and bolts of PowerPoint and learn how to make some of those designs come to life. Whether you present in the classroom, convert PowerPoint slides to eLearning, or use PowerPoint for graphics to put in another authoring tool, this session will help you take your designs to the next level. You’ll learn to create graphics, animations, presentations, and courses that people won’t believe you did in PowerPoint. Plus, you’ll learn little-known shortcuts that will save you time in getting these great effects.

In this session, you will learn:

  • How to create custom graphics quickly in PowerPoint
  • How to create engaging instructional animations with PowerPoint
  • Time-saving PowerPoint techniques
  • How to customize the PowerPoint environment to your needs
