While this class is being taught using the features available PowerPoint Office 365 (version 1806 and above). While many topics will be valid for Office 2016 users, almost half of the topics will be available exclusively to Office 365 subscribers. These include Office 365-only topics such as Designer, Morph and Zoom. These features will also be built into the release of Office 2019 (available in the fall of 2018), so these features will be available to soon to early adopters of Office 2019.
You already know PowerPoint and have been working with it regularly. Some of your skills are self-taught and you might have taken formal training one or more versions back. Individuals who have taken one or more PowerPoint classes will be excellent candidates for this class.
Who Should NOT Take This Class
If you are a novice PowerPoint user, this class is not for you. It is best to have some practical PowerPoint work experience before taking this class. Also, if you have taken all three of our PowerPoint Introduction, and Beyond the Basics classes, there will be a overlap in topics. However, this class does have new features and techniques that are not in the other courses.
This class is not for beginning PowerPoint users. The typical candidate for this class will be either self-taught or will have had some formal training in PowerPoint. This class can be taken after the PowerPoint Introduction (or with equivalent experience).
