If you need to produce stunning presentations that keep you audiences engaged Powerpoint 2011 is the right program for you. We'll take a tour of the new and improved fluent user interface focusing mainly on the ribbon to get you feeling comfortable in your new surroundings. Then it's on to the basics of creating presentations from scratch. Whether they be blank presentations, or pre-formated presentations using one of the many templates available to you here in Powerpoint 2011.

We'll get into more complex functionality when we start customizing the layout and design of your presentation. This will involve extensive work with text. There's tables, charts, media, and special effects. Of course, presentations are usually made to be shared. So we'll discover and discuss ways to show and share your presentations with others.
