PowerPoint is a presentation program. It is mostly used for the creation of on screen presentations, that support all kinds of meetings.

This course is a long introduction to PowerPoint. After explaining the different views and standard options, we take a closer look at the masters and templates so that you are able to create standard presentations. All elements that can be put on the master are treated: design of the presentation, formatting text, inserting pictures and extra info on the slides (such as headers and footers e.g.).

Once the master is created, you learn who to save your presentation as a regular presentation as well as saving it as a template.

Aftwerwards we continue by working slide by slide, in which we show you some basic principles of creating slides and of inserting text into your presentation.

The following chapters consider tables, charts, organization charts and other types of graphic objects.

The last part is an overview of the page setup and printing possibilities and also of the many possibilities of transition and animation effects, which will give your presentation a professional look and feel.
