About Microsoft PowerPoint

PowerPoint is predominantly a tool for business users to present data to audiences within commercial environments.  It allows presenters to reveal data using slides that can contain a range of different media, including text, images and videos. Animations can also be used to enliven the broadcast, which is typically transmitted through the use of a digital projector. The presentation can be set up to run manually or automatically.

Our Approach

Our courses all focus on interactivity, which maximises learning and therefore effectiveness back at work.  And with our highly competitive pricing structure, you will get the best return on your training budget.

History Of Microsoft Powerpoint

Although PowerPoint is used mainly on conventional PCs, it was designed for the Macintosh, first launched in 1987 named ‘Presenter.’  Due to a legal dispute Microsoft rebranded it as ‘PowerPoint.’  Earliest versions of the software required programming knowledge to work and it was only with the advent of the Visual Basic Application language that it became accessible to less experienced users.

PowerPoint 2000

Graphically PowerPoint 2000 was a step ahead of previous releases. This made it ideal for anyone who relies on clean, crisp visuals to drive their presentations. The interface was not as easy to use, with key functions having been reorganised, and with the use of different file formats, anyone familiar with earlier versions of PowerPoint needed to re-learn the programme.

PowerPoint 2003

Improvements were made to PowerPoint’s interface.  Subtle movements of the mouse prompt navigational buttons to appear in the bottom left hand corner of the screen, and before you exit your presentation you’ll be asked if you want to change your annotations. Users who frequently insert videos in to their slides will notice they can be embedded without the need to use a full screen or a pop up.

PowerPoint 2007

With the ushering in of the ribbon feature, PowerPoint’s interface was less cluttered. Features and functions used in Word, Excel and Outlook can be accessed here too – giving users a wide range of colours, fonts and special effects to select from. SmartArt stands out as one of the better features, allowing complex images to be created in just a couple of easy clicks of the mouse.

PowerPoint 2010

In the past PowerPoint had trouble manipulating video data. The files needed to be edited to size and the format checked. Even then it was possible to run into difficulty. The 2010 version resolved this by allowing compatibility with more file formats.  In fact, PowerPoint 2010 is good for anyone with limited experience of computers.

PowerPoint 2013

The look of PowerPoint was modernised through the use of borderless windows and the removal of the title bar. The ribbon remains but has been enlarged to make the program more tablet/smartphone friendly. Information can now be presented in the 16:9 ratio demanded by most modern laptops, making PowerPoint 2013 a lot more versatile.
