By Ben Audsley, Electronic Resources Manager
This course is for you
Improve your presentations with the innovative use of Microsoft PowerPoint and Microsoft Sway!
Do you want to enhance your presentations by adding interactivity, engagement and excitement – Well this is the right course for you!
By the end of this course, learners will be able to create amazing multimedia presentations which will enhance your audiences learning and viewing experience! The course is split into 2 main sections – Microsoft PowerPoint and Microsoft Sway.
I will begin the course by guiding learners through improving their presentations using PowerPoint. I will show learners how to add images, audio and video to your slides, as well as teaching learners about narration, annotation animations and transitions.
The course will finish by looking at Microsoft Sway, a digital storytelling app, accessed entirely online, that allows you to create and share interactive presentations, class materials and projects. I will teach learners how to use sway, how to get the best out of the various design options and how to produce a professional, online presentation using Microsoft sway.
Throughout the course, there will be special example lessons that demonstrate the skills and techniques learnt in the course, and I will include real life practical examples, all of which are available for my learners to download.
