Presentation Software

Basic Technology Skills -> software ->presentation software

Presentation software is designed to create visual aides for speeches and presentations. It can also be used to create on-line learning modules. At Alverno we use PowerPoint 2010 as our presentation software.

PowerPoint 2010 is different from other versions of PowerPoint, but has similar navigation to Word and Excel.

PowerPoint 2010 uses Ribbons to navigate the program, rather than pull down menus. An example of the Home ribbon of PowerPoint is pictured below:

Alverno Tech Services Department provides a handout on PowerPoint 2010 Basics. This is a pdf file that explains the major functions of PowerPoint. You can also find tutorials on Microsoft's site.
