PowerPoint training 2

In this second of two PowerPoint trainings, learn to use photos, videos and graphics to illustrate an idea in your presentation. Ever heard the phrase, “a picture is worth a thousand words”? Using photos and other graphic elements within your presentation is not only stimulating and engaging for your audience, it can convey more to your viewers in a shorter amount of time than a whole slide of text. Some use cases for photos or videos in your presentation include;

  1. Illustrating a complex process that instructs your audience
  2. A visual introduction of members of your team or family
  3. Showing your boss a testimonial of a happy client

By learning how to use the video and imagery tools of PowerPoint you’ll show off your advanced presentation skills and better leverage this robust presentation application. In this training, you will create a stimulating presentation from scratch. The self-paced lessons from this PowerPoint training help you learn at your pace to create new slides with video and image content.
