This PowerPoint course will teach students to create attractive and dynamic PowerPoint presentations. By the end of the course, students will be able to create complete slideshows that include text, graphics and video. The course begins with the basics of creating and editing slides. Students will then progress to making those slides visually appealing with themes and colors. In the following two modules, students will learn how to create and insert charts and infographics, and how to include audio and video that can be played directly from the slideshow. The course ends with final review, adding notes and creating printable handouts, and saving the slideshow appropriately.
