This page is for Introduction to PowerPoint and PowerPoint Online
PowerPoint is the most popular presentation software in the world. Whether you need a comprehensive course on the standard Office software or a course on the free PowerPoint Online version, we’ve got you covered.

Instructor Information

We recommend using the Introduction to PowerPoint 2016 manual for all classes. Functionally PowerPoint 2010, 2013 and 2016 are almost identical, but the newest version will have the most up-to-date information. There will be a few functions that won’t work on older Office versions, but learning what they are will prepare students for the future updates.
