Power Point

PowerPoint Tutorial

Download this file to your desktop and then RUN IT AS A SLIDESHOWDO NOT run it in a browser window. This is a self-directed PowerPoint tutorial I created that uses both beginning and intermediate features of PowerPoint. This file is in normal PowerPoint format though so, in theory, PC or Mac machines can run it. In any case, this tutorial makes use of internal links and menus for you to learn about those basic and intermediate features you are most interest in learning.

Alternatively, here are links to tutorials that will help you complete the project below. Disclaimer: You may also need to use Google or other search engine to help you with some of the features listed in the rubric.
