Why You Should Take This Class
As activities become increasingly “virtual,” information typically shared in person is now being presented through video-conferencing. Great if everything works smoothly, but awkward if the mechanics of PowerPoint distract from your message.
This class will teach you use PowerPoint features such as transitions and animation to focus your audience on your message, and show you the proper way to use PowerPoint with Zoom so you can deliver your presentation seamlessly and with confidence.
