PowerPoint: From Outline to Presentation
1h 56m Appropriate for all Nov 20, 2013
Sometimes presenters get so wrapped up in creating the perfect slideshow, they forget its job is to support their talking points. In this course, Rich Harrington shares his workflow for building an effective PowerPoint presentation, starting with a strong outline. Learn to create the outline, get input from collaborators, and then transition that outline to an initial slide deck. Once you're in PowerPoint, Rich will show you how to format your slides; add tables, graphics, movies, and animation (like transitions and reveals); and prepare and rehearse your presentation for your final audience.
