Course description

This course examines different ways to modify the look and feel of your presentation, as well as how to finalize and prepare your presentation. It will demonstrate the presenter-facing notes feature, selectively replacing words and other features that utilize the proofing tool, and how to best use transitions. Finally, Leeanne and Kari will discuss printing your presentation and converting it for use with other programs.


This course assumes that students are familiar with the basic use of Windows and common use of the mouse and keyboard. No prior experience with PowerPoint is assumed.
