+++++++++++++++++++++++


WHAT IS MICROSOFT POWERPOINT:

I have been using Microsoft PowerPoint for over 20 years now. I could not have achieved what I have at this point in my life without this program. I absolutely love it!

Microsoft PowerPoint is a slide-based presentation tool that was developed by Microsoft back in 1990. It is the oldest, most well-known and widely-used presentation tool in the world. It allows you to create beautiful presentations with minimal work.

+++++++++++++++++++++++


WHY SHOULD YOU LEARN POWERPOINT:

A study released by Microsoft and the IDC showed that among 14.6 million job postings proficiency in Microsoft Office and PowerPoint were ranked in the top 8 of most desired skills by employers leading up to 2020. If you want to survive and thrive in the professional world, you have to know how to use this program.

+++++++++++++++++++++++


WHY LEARN IT FROM ME:

I have over 60,000 students and over 5,000 reviews across my 20 plus courses. Teaching is my passion and my creative outlet. I have been using the Microsoft Office package since I was a child and have been using it consistently throughout my life. I have teaching experiences that spans from teaching primary school students, high school students, university graduates and business professionals. I have discovered for myself the best style of teaching which gives my students satisfaction, understanding, knowledge and in the shortest time possible. Professionally, I am trained in Aerospace Engineering, Database Design and Business Analytics.

+++++++++++++++++++++++


WHAT YOU WILL LEARN IN THIS COURSE:

I will teach everything I know about PowerPoint. I have used every edition of PowerPoint and I know the ins and outs of this program. I’ll teach you not only the big operations like design style formatting across the entire documents but also the tiny little nuances most people don’t realize such as single click object duplication. I’ll teach you how to be productive using all available such as keyboard shortcuts and the Quick Access Toolbar. We’ll go through the various transition and animation sequences, image handling and artistic effects, Do’s and Don’ts, best practice, chart and table design, header and footer customization, design theme, template creation and much more!

+++++++++++++++++++++++


WHAT IS THE DELIVERY METHOD AND STYLE:

I don’t like chit chat and wasting time. I like to get straight to the point with my courses so you get what you need as quickly as possible. I keep my video length between 3-5 minutes and in small portions teaching just one or two things at a time.

I’ve constructed this course such that after completing the first chapter, you will be able to use Microsoft. Additional sections and lectures are embellishments and enhancements I will teach you to take your PowerPoint presentation skills even further.

+++++++++++++++++++++++
