Not Your Mama's PowerPoint: Tricks You Never Knew It Can Do
Even though PowerPoint is one of the most ubiquitous software packages in the training world, many users are merely scratching the surface of its capabilities. In this session, you'll uncover some of the best PowerPoint features for saving time, enhancing your look, and engaging your audience. Whether you are making presentations in management meetings, teaching in the classroom, or creating e-learning, this session will help you take your designs to the next level. You'll move past flying bullets in from the left and right, which was the height of PowerPoint fashion... in 1997! Instead, you'll learn to create graphics, animations, presentations, and courses that people won't believe you did in PowerPoint.
You’ll examine a sample project with “before” and “after” slides that transformed from text bullets to the instructional animations that led to an award-winning course. You’ll learn to turn some of the specific design techniques used in that transformation into techniques you can use yourself, even if you aren’t a graphic artist.
