Course Overview: This course will provide you with all the tools necessary to create and present engaging and effective presentations. As an advanced user, you can take advantage of features that allow you to customize your animations to create just the right effect. PowerPoint has tools for getting your animations to move at the right speed and in the right order using custom animation effects and motion paths. You'll learn how to merge shapes, add shape effects and how to use pictures and shapes as links to other pages in the presentation, or to pages on the Internet. This course also explores various ways of incorporating and modifying charts to create professional and effective presentations. You’ll learn how to create consistent looking presentations using tools like Smart Guides and Master Level Guides to align objects across all slides.  An alternative to sharing a presentation with other team members is to share or send the presentation as an e-mail attachment, send it by instant message, or save it to your SkyDrive Account or to Office 365 Share Point. You can also export your presentation by creating a video, creating handouts, or packaging the presentation on a CD.
