LS610 BYOL: Using PowerPoint as a Graphic Design Tool

1:00 PM - 2:00 PM Thursday, March 23


Palm 5

You need images for your eLessons, and you can’t find exactly what you want. Or if you do find the right one, it costs money that you don’t have in the budget. Or you want to create the images yourself but don’t think you have the artistic talent to do so.

You don’t need to be a graphic designer with fancy software to make professional-looking images. In this session, you’ll learn how to use PowerPoint to create slick images. You’ll use effects like 3-D format, shadows, 3-D rotations, merge shapes, and animations to create a peeled sticker, rotating gears, glass balls, puzzle pieces, a winding road, silhouettes, infographic icons, and more. You’ll also learn how to export PowerPoint animations to MP4 videos and single slides as an image.

In this session, you will learn:

  • How to use PowerPoint effects to make professional-looking images
  • How to create MP4 videos from PowerPoint animations
  • How to create puzzle pieces, peeled stickers, glass balls, winding roads, infographic icons, and more
