Description

Have you ever wanted to create a presentation, but never really had the time or the know how? If so, this course is designed for you.

With three hours of course content, The Beginner's Guide to Keynote for Mac is sure to take your presentations to the next level.

We'll start out downloading and installing Keynote from the Mac App Store, and move on to basic navigation, use of the media bar and the inspector, and even look at Apple's pre-built templates and themes.

Finally, we'll focus on educational and professional use of Keynote to make the most of this software in many scenarios.

There are a couple short quizzes along the way to help the retention of information, and upon completion, you will receive a certificate from Udemy.

Award Winning Filmmaker - Graphic Artist - Website Designer - Videographer

I have always been interested in photography, videography, and editing everything I capture through those interests. I am an avid user of both Final Cut Pro X and Adobe Premiere Pro CC 2015. I've been recognized nationally for my work with video editing, website, creation, and graphic design. I've co-taught a high school computer class and directed a 12th grade elective focusing on videography, editing, scripting, and acting. I have taken classes in performing arts, computer applications, iOS app development, and was chosen as one of six students to be part of the campus Creative Arts team during my freshman year of college. I currently am shooting a lot of video with GoPro cameras, and have also used them with DJI Phantom quadcopters.
