Learn how to build a Keynote presentation from scratch in this course with Rich Harrington. First, you'll set the goal for the presentation and create a basic outline that you'll then convert into a Keynote slideshow. Next, you'll format your slides and learn to work with text, photos, video, charts, and shapes. Last, add the animation that brings your slideshow to life and then get Rich's tips on packaging, testing, and rehearsing your presentation.

Hi, my name's Rich Harrington. And today we're going to be taking a look at Apple Keynote. I'm going to walk you through the process of going from an outline to a finished presentation. The emphasis here is not on learning everything that Keynote can do, but rather to give you a nice quick start so you can jump right in and build a presentation. I'll walk you through some of the best practices with getting organized, gathering your assets and then quickly flowing that into a final presentation. Once the presentation is built, we'll proof it, we'll optimize all the files, gather them up so they can easily be moved from one machine to another, and then rehearse the presentation.
The whole goal here is to get you up and running on Keynote quickly. But even if you're an experienced user, I'm still going to show you a lot of time saving shortcuts, as well as design theory to make your presentations better.
