Unlocking the Power of PowerPoint

25 02 2014

Most of us have used PowerPoint (PPT) to create presentations, but did you know that the newer versions of PPT have built into them some powerful tools for creating graphics and templates and make your eLearning or your presentations really look and function nicely.

Here are a few tutorials from our friends at Rapid eLearning. If you like these, you might check with Maureen for other PPT tutorials that we have available through Lynda.com.

PPT can be a powerful tool, and it can be fun to unpack the power of the tool!  By the way, these tutorials were made using Articulate’s Storyline or Studio. We’ll be offering face-to-face training for Articulate Studio in March. You’ll want to be familiar with some of the power of PPT before you come to Studio training. So these or the Lynda.com training links would be a great place to start.  Microsoft offers its own training tutorials for PPT linked here: Training Courses for PPT 2013
