Working with Text, you will you will examine the features that you can use to set up an outline and add, modify, and format text, lists, paragraphs and WordArt in a presentation. 

Working with Charts and Tables, when presenting ideas that include references to data, it may be helpful to use a chart or table. Charts and tables can visually transform data into a more meaningful structure, making it easier for you to convey your message

Adding Multimedia Elements, multimedia elements, such as graphics, pictures, video, and audio, add visual appeal to a presentation and can often be used in place of words. Using multimedia elements increases audience understanding and retention, provides emphasis on main points, clarifies your message, and enables you to engage your audience using multiple senses. Multimedia elements help users see and hear what you are trying to say

Enhancing Presentations, you can enhance a slide by adding a video or sound clip. Inserting a video clip (also called a movie clip or file) or adding sound to a slide can add interest to your presentation. However, relying too heavily on multimedia effects to carry your presentation can backfire. Too much sound and motion during a presentation can be confusing to your audience. Used thoughtfully, however, video and sound effects can quickly catch your viewers’ attention.

Preparing the Slide Shown, you will learn to use the comment feature, add speaker notes and create handouts, rehearse and record your presentation, and present online. Topics includede in this section, review your presentation, insering comments, comparing presentations, inserting speaker notes, reherasing a presentation, applying timings and creating custom slideshows.
