Microsoft PowerPoint – Comprehensive


Microsoft PowerPoint is a tool capable of easily organizing, powerfully illustrating and professionally delivering your ideas. It is becoming increasingly important as methods for presenting data are becoming more and more complex. Additionally, the use of such performance software has become mandatory as part of the everyday work life of an individual whether it be in the private or public sector. Whether conducting an informal meeting, presenting to an audience, or delivering your message over the Internet, you will have the tolls required to communicate visually with an impact. The application of learning such software would enable the user to apply such skills to any software package which entails the same functionality to a greater extent, thereby making the individual more marketable in their field.

Therefore, this course has been designed around the core areas of publishing your ideas through creating and editing slides, adding maps, charts and graphs to a presentation, inserting tables and other data into a slide and even linking various other productivity software files to your presentations. This course will cover the comprehensive level of the Microsoft PowerPoint software and place emphasis on the quick and efficient use of this software to attain positive results.
