Video duration: 0s 4h 10m Beginner


At some point in our lives, we all have to make a presentation. Keynote is a popular choice. Though it's streamlined and easy to use (like a lot of Apple products), we could all use a hand building our first Keynote slideshow. In this course, David Rivers teaches how to use Keynote to its full potential, and create presentations that both entertain and inform. Learn how to choose slide layouts; add text, images, audio and video, animation, and eye-catching effects; use transitions to ease the moves between slides; and get set up to deliver a smooth presentation. Plus, learn how to share your presentation as a movie, a PDF, a printout, or even on iCloud.

  • Working with themes

  • Adding text, shapes, and links
  • Building tables and interactive charts
  • Inserting audio and video in your slides
  • Applying transitions
