Microsoft PowerPoint Tutorials

Each of the PowerPoint tutorials is designed as a single Module.  In this Module, you'll learn how to create a PowerPoint presentation.  You'll also learn how to edit slides, include text and graphics, insert sounds and colors, and view the PowerPoint slide show..  The individual areas, covered in this Module, are furnished below.  All of the tutorials follow the same theme - creating a PowerPoint presentation.  This is purposeful.  It was felt that, as a person progressed to newer versions of PowerPoint, having the same tutorial theme would make them more comfortable with learning the material.  Each succeeding tutorial is enhanced to incorporate new features in PowerPoint and respond to added features requested by users.
