Microsoft PowerPoint 2016/2013 – Advanced Techniques

The course is intended for all users of Microsoft PowerPoint 2016 or 2013, who need to be able to create content-rich presentations using all available features. We will focus on topics ranging from the creation of slides with multimedia content (images, videos, diagrams, graphs, and generated diagrams) through tools that enable animate content (transitions, animations and sounds) after creating your own presentation design with custom defined types of images. You will get tips and tricks for detailed configuration of printouts, slideshow export to other applications in order to generate quality printed materials and much more.

Both versions will be installed in the classroom. Version 2016 will be used primarily, the older version can be also used, if needed.
