Course description

With Microsoft Office PowerPoint 2007, you can create professional-looking slide show presentations. This version of PowerPoint includes many new features, and one of the most noteworthy changes is the Ribbon, which replaces the menus and toolbars used in earlier versions. We will show you how to use the new Ribbon as you learn to create presentations, using templates, themes and layouts. You can make your Presentations more dynamic and effective by adding images and effects. In this course we will show you how to insert clip art, photos, graphic objects, and charts, and how to add transitions and animations. You will also see how to customize Excel to suit the way you work.
