“The stand-out skill was developing effective PowerPoints for use in the classroom. I especially enjoyed the menu driven presentation because it helped me develop new skills, while not being so tedious and time consuming. I would be able to use this method for preparing materials for my students.” – Ginger G.



Not so fast, Prezi! PowerPoint still has a few tricks up its sleeve! It remains one of the most ubiquitous tech tools found in classrooms today. Teachers love the versatility and professionalism of the presentations, while students love how they can easily personalize and animate their ideas for all to see. There is a lot to enjoy in this simple software package, but for some, the idea of building a presentation is too daunting. Or perhaps, you are an avid PowerPoint user and want to dig deeper into the program to find some new ways to use the familiar software. In either case, this course is ideal for the professional educator who uses (or has wanted to use) PowerPoint® in their classroom, staff meetings, library, or home. You might as well earn 15 hours towards your professional development requirements while creating useful presentations for your staff, students and/or self!
