Workshop: Advanced PowerPoint - The Master Class

Date/Time
22 Jan, Monday, 9:00 am - 5:00 pm
Venue
NUS, Tahir Foundation Building (MD1), Computer Lab
Description

This course teaches PowerPoint mastery for medical and life science communication. While PowerPoint is widely known, it is also widely underused and misused, leading to text-heavy, visually complex, and bullet-filled presentations. These problems generally stem from a lack of knowledge on how to present complex or dynamic data. The course will cover advanced PowerPoint features such as information overlay, animated chart, motion path, figure redraw with Bezier tool, synchronization of image with video, as well as the use of third party (free) software to allow detailed image manipulation and presentation.
