Microsoft PowerPoint 2016 Online Course

Hi, my name is Frans and I am your Regional Account Manager for ATTI Online Learning in South Africa. My role is to look at simple, and effective ways to develop your PowerPoint skills using our step-by-step online video tutorials.

If you are worried that you might be to old to learn about computers or fear that you might not be able to do this, then I want to reassure you that if you are serious about this we are commited to helping you learn.

We have trained thousands of people from all walks of life, every sector, every industry and every age group. We are very passionate about training and to me it is extremely satisfying to help a person grow and see them master a computer course like Microsoft Office.

Online courses require a much more self-motivated learning style than traditional classes and for some the first online learning experience can be a little intimidating, but once you get the hang of it, I promise you, you will do fine.

In this online course with the help of our video tutorials you will learn everything you need to know to be proficient in Microsoft PowerPoint 2016.

Since Microsoft PowerPoint 2007 a person ensured that they grab and maintain their audience's focus when asked to create and present important information in the ppt format. From Microsoft PowerPoint 2010 to Microsoft PowerPoint 2013 we have not noticed any major changes in terms of the interface, only a few new features.

In this Microsoft PowerPoint Online course you will learn how to use PowerPoint to create engaging visual presentations. We will look at the vast array of features and functionality contained within Microsoft PowerPoint 2016. We will look at organising content as well as enhancing it with high-impact visuals allowing you to deliver dynamic multimedia presentations.

Microsoft PowerPoint 2016 is here to help you create, share, and co-author powerful presentations.With new features—including modern chart types, screen recordings, and the Microsoft Office Mix add-in with enhanced screen recording functionality—PowerPoint 2016 allows you to bring your presentations to a whole new level.

Microsoft PowerPoint Target Audience

This course is intended for delegates who want to learn the fundamental skills of working with Microsoft PowerPoint 2016, such as creating, editing, and formatting documents, inserting and formatting tables and creating charts, using multimedia and animation and employing a variety of techniques for improving the appearance of a PowerPoint presentation.

On successful completion of the course learners will receive an attendance certificate as well as a transcript on what was covered.

Learners can also assess their powerpoint skills with the Microsoft Office Specialist Certification at approved Certiport Testing Centres all over the country. The Microsoft Office Specialist Certification is optional and the fees for the excel certification might differ between the testing centers.

Microsoft PowerPoint Training Methodology

This powerpoint online course is modular and each module consists of short video tutorials between 3 and 10 minutes long. In certain cases, some powerpoint videos might exceed 10 minutes due to the nature of the lesson.

The facilitator will demonstrate on their screen step by step a feature or function during each powerpoint tutorial and if necessary, have created sample exercise files that you can download, so that you can follow along and see if you can apply and understand what was covered in the video lesson.
