Back by popular demand! If you missed Diane Elkin's standing-room-only session a few years ago, this webinar is your chance to pick up some of these great tips.

Even though PowerPoint is one of the most ubiquitous software packages in the training world, many users are merely scratching the surface of its capabilities. In this session, you'll uncover some of the best PowerPoint features for saving time, enhancing your look, and engaging your audience. Whether you are making presentations in management meetings, teaching in the classroom, or creating e-learning, this session will help you take your designs to the next level. You'll move past flying bullets in from the left and right, which was the height of PowerPoint fashion... in 1997! Instead, you'll learn to create graphics, animations, presentations, and courses that people won't believe you did in PowerPoint. Plus, you’ll learn little-known shortcuts that will save you time in getting these great effects. Whether you are a manager or a developer, you'll appreciate the increased impact and decreased effort.

In this session, you’ll learn to:

  • Make custom graphics quickly in PowerPoint.
  • Produce engaging instructional animations with PowerPoint.
  • Create slides and graphics in less time.
  • Customize the PowerPoint environment to your needs.
