In PowerPoint for Mac 2011 Essential Training, author David Rivers demonstrates how to create effective slideshows and dynamic presentations using the tools in Microsoft PowerPoint 2011. The course provides in-depth instructions for changing the look of presentations: using built-in and custom themes, formatting text, inserting tables and charts, adding pictures and SmartArt drawings, and adding animation. It also shows how to proof presentations and ready them for viewing, and gives details on the different ways to share presentations. Exercise files are included with the course.
If you are a premium subscriber with lynda.com, you will have access to the exercise files. The exercise files allow you to follow along with me step-by-step, as we move through the various chapters in this title. If you do plan on using them, I highly recommend placing them in a convenient location, such as your desktop, and when you double-click the folder to open it up, you will notice a number of subfolders, representing each of the chapters in this title. Then open up one of those folders, and you will notice additional subfolders for each of the movies in the chapter.
When you take a look inside, you will find the actual file or presentation we will be working with as we go through that particular movie. Now if you don't have the exercise files, don't worry about it; you can still learn lots by simply sitting back and watching.
