ExpertRating Online Microsoft PowerPoint Course (2007- Introduction)
Coverage (6 weeks program)
Wednesday - Lesson 01
The first lesson will
start by exploring the basic features of Microsoft
PowerPoint 2007. You'll get familiar with the new
Ribbon, which replaces the menu and toolbars most
Windows programs have used until now. You'll also
learn how to plan a presentation and work with
different views, task panes, tabs, and templates.
Friday - Lesson 02
Now that you know the
basics of PowerPoint, you can create a presentation
from scratch. So today’s lesson will start by
choosing a PowerPoint theme from the Design tab on
the Ribbon to add color to your presentation. Then
you'll select a layout for your first few slides.
You'll discover the new Live Preview feature, and
then this lesson will discuss the two things you
need to do to save a file so you know where to find
it later. Finally, this lesson will go over the
different ways to put on a slide show.
Wednesday - Lesson 03
You'll find that
there is usually more than one way to perform a task
in PowerPoint. This lesson will explore multiple
ways to open a presentation. Then you'll see how to
open a file and save it with a different name.
Chances are you'll need to edit the text on your
slides, so the Outline tab will be used to work with
text. You'll also learn how to create and edit
tables and work with the Table Tools contextual tab
and the Design and Layout tabs.
Friday - Lesson 04
No program is
complete without a Spell Checker, and today you'll
discover how to use this feature in PowerPoint. This
lesson will also explore the AutoCorrect feature,
which you can use along with the Spell Checker to
check the spelling of your presentations. After
that, this lesson will cover the Research task pane
and the Thesaurus, all found in the Review tab's
Proofing group. And then you'll learn all about the
options in the Print dialog box including how to
print slides, handouts, an outline, and notes. The
students will be surprised to see how the Print
dialog box in PowerPoint is different from the print
feature in other programs.
Wednesday - Lesson 05-
Students are going to
switch gears in this lesson and work with images
instead of text. You'll find out how to embellish
your slides with media clips, which could be a piece
of clip art, a photograph, a movie, or a sound clip.
You'll even learn how to download an image from a
Web site and insert it on a slide. This lesson will
spend a lot of time talking about the Clip Art task
pane, which is the tool you'll use to organize,
search for, and insert media clips on your slides.
Friday - Lesson 06
I hope you like to
draw, because that's what students will be doing in
this lesson. The good news is that you don't have to
be an artist to use the WordArt and Shape tools to
draw shapes on your slide. With the WordArt feature,
you transform your text into an object that you can
design with color, texture, patterns, or just about
anything you like. With the Shapes tool, you can
draw all kinds of shapes including lines and
connectors, a smiley face, a crescent moon, stars,
banners, block arrows, flow chart symbols, callouts,
and more! You can format these Shape objects with
color and texture just like you format WordArt
objects. This lesson will also discuss SmartArt
graphics, a new feature in PowerPoint 2007. With the
SmartArt feature, you can use graphics to add visual
interest to your slides. Finally, this lesson will
delve into editing WordArt and SmartArt graphics.
Wednesday - Lesson 07
Today, you'll learn
how to create and edit chart slides to illustrate
statistical data. Even if you don't like working
with math and numbers, you don't need to worry
because this lesson will walk through everything you
need to do and know to create a chart slide. If
you've used a spreadsheet program, such as Microsoft
Excel, creating chart slides in PowerPoint will be a
breeze. And although you're working with numbers and
math, you'll find that you can still be creative
with your charts by changing the options with Shape
Fill, Shape Outline, and Shape Effects on the Shape
Friday - Lesson 08
This lesson will
explore ways to change a presentation's look with
masters, color schemes, and backgrounds. You use
Masters to make global changes to your slides,
handouts, and notes. For example, if you want to
increase or decrease the font size of the text on
all the slides in a presentation, make the change on
the slide master. Another global change you can make
to a presentation is to modify the theme colors or
background. You'll get a chance to work with both of
these options today.
Wednesday - Lesson 09
Today’s lesson will
delve into PowerPoint's hyperlink feature, which
allows you to create links in a presentation that
jump to other slides, other presentations, other
documents, or to Web pages. You can make links out
of either text or objects. In fact, PowerPoint has
its own version of hyperlinks called Action buttons.
You draw an Action button on a slide with your
mouse, and then instruct PowerPoint where to link
to. You can add interest to your Action buttons by
changing their color and making them
three-dimensional. In addition, you can associate a
sound or other action that initiates when you click
an Action button.
Friday - Lesson 10
This lesson is all
about animation. First, you'll learn about slide
transitions--an animated effect that occurs when a
new slide appears. For example, a slide might fly in
from the top or push up from the bottom. After
covering slide transitions, this lesson will explore
how to apply animation to the text and objects on
Wednesday - Lesson 11
Today’s lesson will
explore custom animation--a feature that helps you
apply animation to text and objects on individual
slides. The Custom Animation task pane allows you to
customize the animation on any slide. You'll learn
how to use the Custom Animation task pane to add and
reorder animated text and objects on a slide and to
add sound effects and music to your presentation.
Friday - Lesson 12
In this last lesson,
you'll discover how to save a PowerPoint
presentation as a Web page and view it online. This
lesson will also explore the Package for CD command
on PowerPoint's Office menu, which allows you to
save a PowerPoint presentation on a CD.
