PowerPoint Training – Free Online Course

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. These show you how to make a visual, animated slide.

These four 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 with the basic shapes, building up your content:

Through the videos we’ll show you exactly what you need to do to create animating, 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!
