MS PowerPoint - Intermediate


This course is NO LONGER AVAILABLE to our campus community. Please use

When thinking of presentations, animation and sound quickly come to mind. There are a number of principles integral to the creation of a balanced and inviting presentation. Most importantly, one of the greatest challenges is to distribute the final product with all embellishments intact and functioning as they did in their native environment.

Depending on the offering location, in-class instruction will be demonstrated in either MS Access 2007 or 2010. Differences between the two versions are mentioned when applicable to a given concept. Those working in a MAC environment can also benefit from the instruction though some keystrokes and procedures will be different.
