Microsoft PowerPoint is a very robust program with a number of bells and whistles, so many in fact that you may not have even realized they are there. We regret we don't have enough space to cover them all, but we've chosen some of our favourites below.
1. Moving Slides from one presentation to another.
2. Jumping slides during a show.
On occasion, you may find it necessary (or helpful) to jump from one slide to another in a different area of the presentation. Perhaps you've been asked a question at the end of your show and want to refer back to a slide at the beginning. While in presentation mode, simply type the number of the slide you wish to go to, and hit enter.
3. Colour, Grayscale, Black and White.
PowerPoint offers a lot of great themes with various colours schemes - all of which look brilliant on screen, but what about your handouts? Colour printing is expensive, and colour prints in black and white don't often translate well. Next time you have to print handouts, try this quick fix. Select the view tab, and click "Grayscale." A new ribbon will appear with a number of grayscale variations for you to use - just pick your favourite!
5. Quick Keys
There are 5 quick keys you'll want to remember for your presentations:
Blacking or whiting out your screen is helpful in bringing the focus back to you, the presenter.

The majority of my computer training focused on Publisher. I have received positive comments and feedback from several of my colleagues on the changes between my first attempt and current expertise creating the monthly internal newsletter for my department. They enjoy the updated format and the way in which the information is presented.
Deborah assisted me through a learning curve, as I had not previously had any exposure to this program prior to joining Rama. She also provided me with a refresher course on PowerPoint and Excel. Deborah is a patient teacher and tailored the training to suit my job requirements.
