Course Outline
So you can create a half-decent presentation, but shouldn't it be really good? This course teaches you the PowerPoint techniques that make your talks really pop.

I was the only pupil in the class. The instructor could have learned about me (my employer, job description, background in PPT) beforehand, or just asked me -- I told him I don't use PPT on an everyday basis and he assumed I was a beginner and started telling me I should be in the beginner course and scolded me for "not reading course descriptions" before enrolling. I found his assessment to be inaccurate and a bit insulting... just because I don't use PPT every day in my current role doesn't mean I can't insert a text box!

I would love to take this course for Level two with same instructor Tina.

Too much material to cover, did not really learn what I went for. One hour is way too long a break, especially since you can't work on your own, you need the instructor to be present. We went to learn, not eat.
