Hour 1. Getting a Feel for PowerPoint > Why Learn PowerPoint?

Why Learn PowerPoint?

More than likely, your work is communicating: selling, teaching, motivating, or persuading. You might have a comfort level with other tools such as displays, flipcharts, overheads, and conventional slide projectors. This first hour is devoted to getting you just as comfortable presenting from a laptop as you begin to use PowerPoint.

By the end of the hour, you'll have created and given your first complete PowerPoint presentation. It won't have all the bells and whistles that set PowerPoint apart from the other visual communication tools mentioned earlier. There won't be any whizzing bullets, cool transitions, music, photos, or video—but it will be a computer file every bit as effective as an overhead or a conventional slideshow.
