Video: Welcome

Hi! I'm David Rivers and welcome to Keynote '08 Essential Training. In this series of training videos, we are going to get you up to speed and working quickly with this latest version of Apple's presentation program that by the way contains many new features. Keynote '08 along with Pages, Apple's word processing program, and Numbers, a spreadsheet application, makes up the iWork '08 software suite. Now if you are just starting out with Keynote and presentation software in general or even if you're a long-time Microsoft PowerPoint user, you're probably going to find that Keynote has some very powerful features to offer and that it's definitely a viable alternative to using PowerPoint.
