Learn PowerPoint with this complete PowerPoint tutorial, quizzes and exercises.  PowerPoint is a powerful tool that was developed to help anyone create amazing presentations, no matter what their technical ability. But too many people use PowerPoint the wrong way. What is the wrong way? Well, I'd say it was any way that makes your audience wish they weren't watching your presentation. Or worse, puts them to sleep. I am sure you have you seen PowerPoint presentations like that. What made them boring? Too much text? Endless bullets? Maybe the presenter just read the slides? But PowerPoint presentations don't need to be boring, and that is why I decided to create this course. My goal for this course is twofold: To teach you how to use PowerPoint, so you are comfortable and competent finding your way around the interface. When you need to create a presentation, I want you to feel confident in using PowerPoint, even excited. To explore the basics of good presentation design.

We'll look at how you can keep your audience engaged and interested in what you are saying by strategically using the tools built into PowerPoint.

I want to teach you to create PowerPoint presentations that you are proud of, and people talk about - in a good way.
