Some products are so quintessential and so ubiquitous, their name signifies everything of the same type. Band-Aids. Kleenex. And PowerPoint. There’s good reason “PowerPoint” stands for “slide presentation,” regardless of what software was used to create it!

PowerPoint is just as important for student use as it is for instruction, even more so since it provides an accessible platform from which learners can act as producers of content, not just consumers of instruction. That said, knowing how to create an engaging PowerPoint is an essential skill for any educator, in a wide array of contexts, from parent meetings or presentations for the school board to activating prior knowledge or creating interactive resources to deliver content to kids.

This course is a complete pathway to mastery of the 2016 version, whether you’re a beginner or you’ve been creating PowerPoints for class for years. You can complete the modules in the order offered here, or skip around to learn what and in the ways that work best for you.

And we know your time is limited and precious, so you can complete an Assessment of Knowledge (AOK) option that not only demonstrates your competency, but that also lets you walk away with material you can use in in your teaching practice right away. Our credentialed reviewers will assess your work according to this rubricand award a badge that certifies your mastery of the latest, greatest, PowerPoint 2016.
