PowerPoint Training – Free Online Course

PowerPoint tutorials

One of the things that some people find difficult about creating visual PowerPoint slides is knowing how to replace their bullet points with visuals. Once you actually try it though, visualisation isn’t that hard.

To help people get started creating visual slides, we’ve put together a four week set of quick tutorials to show you how to make visual, animated slides.

The tutorials each last less than 10 minutes, and include a video lesson to watch on-demand, as well as all the files you need to build your own animated visual slide.

You’ll start by learning how to make basic shapes and build up your content:

Through the videos we’ll show you exactly what you need to do to create animated, engaging visuals:

Until you’ve got your final slide in place:

These short video tutorials will show you how to:

  • Visualise a slide, and then lay out the shapes in PowerPoint.
  • Format shapes and insert pictures to design a visual PowerPoint slide.
  • Use animation to tell your story.
  • Use advanced animation techniques – including timing, clicks, and sequences.

With your new PowerPoint skills you’ll be able to make some seriously sophisticated slides for your next presentation!

You can sign up to receive the tutorial videos below.

Thank you for the self-paced online PowerPoint course. May I make a suggestion? Consider putting ‘close caption’ for these videos to make it more accessible. For example, I like to learn while commuting or waiting for meetings or classes to start. With the current presentation that rely on audio cues/presentation as well as that on the visual, I cannot hear in the dim of background noise. Still I can view and study them in an absolute quiet environment, which cuts down learning accessibility. Nevertheless, I am grateful.

Hi Ken, great idea! We’ll have to have a think about how we could go about adding this functionality to our videos, but thanks for the suggestion!

I am a professional Layout and Print Designer with one of the top four Audit firms.
Now a days there is a lot of demand for PPT experts. I dare to be so.
Can you please send me some demo videos and PPT files.
I am also thinking to do a online certification course in Powerpoint.
Does your company offer some online courses on nominal fees.
Please suggest me some other website as well.
looking forward to receive a mail from bright carbon.

Thanks & Regards,

Hi Karl,

I saw your “3 Design Hacks to Make Your Presentations Look More Professional” presentation featured on slideshare. After browsing through your website, I went ahead and registered for your free four (4) part PowerPoint training class but I never received a link in my email. However, I was given immediate access to your Advanced Visualization tutorial which was excellent.

If you could please send me the link to your four (4) part tutorial, that would be great. Also do you have a book out on Amazon I can purchase because I’m not able to come to the UK to take your Advance PPT training course??

Thank you

Thanks for the comment Lila! Really pleased you like the content! I’ve checked and resent your tutorial video – hopefully it should be with you now.

On the subject of a book, we don’t have anything in the pipeline at the moment – but it’s an interesting thought! In the mean time, you should be able to attend our free online master classes we run each month.

You can sign up for the master classes on our events page.

Thanks again for your thoughts.
