Amazing PowerPoint Features that will Leave You Speechless

Thursday, 10:15 am – 11:00 am Central

PowerPoint has a reputation for being boring, and sometimes it seems its features really haven’t changed since flint was at the cutting edge of cutting edges! But that all changed since Office 365 came along. Now, there are new tools added every few weeks, and there are tremendous gains to be had from a host of functions. Sadly, these features are all too often hidden away, out of sight, and out of mind.

In this session, you’ll see all the amazing things you can now do with PowerPoint to bring your presentations, eLearning, and other content to life, by telling visual stories in an engaging and interactive way.

Topics include:

  • How to access graphics seamlessly
  • Adding live heatmaps and all sorts of new charts
  • Incorporating 3D models
  • Capturing video and screen recording
  • Converting sketches into slides
  • Generating live subtitles as you talk
  • Using the terrific new Morph transition to do completely astounding things in so easily that you’ll be amazed you ever tried to live without it.

If you gave up on PowerPoint long ago, now’s the time to try again. No, really. It’s amazing what you’ll be able to achieve.
