An Introduction to Creating PowerPoint Presentations

Today U3A Members need to impart so much information to other members that the use of a visual format is generally the best option, for which PowerPoint offers an easy solution. Words and images can be rapidly put together in a series of slides that can then be run on almost any computer. That computer can in turn be connected to either a projector or large TV screen for an audience to view.

Only basic IT skills of mouse, keyboard and file handling are required. Once the fundamentals are gained PowerPoint offers editing features for both words and images as simple or complex as the user desires without ever having to go outside the program. The latest version includes Design Ideas that can turn your presentation into a masterpiece without having to be a specialist. See the attached sheet.
