3 INTRODUCTION Microsoft PowerPoint (presentation graphics) is a computer software package used to display information, normally in the form of a slide show.

4 PLAN A PRESENTATION Before you create a presentation it is a good idea to sit down and plan what knowledge/information you want to include eg the introduction, the middle contents and the end, the type of audience, images you want to include, links to web sites etc and how you can make it eye catching and interesting. POWERPOINT OPENING WINDOW When you open PowerPoint the opening window will display several templates from which you can make a selection depending on the presentation you want to create. To create a blank presentation from scratch you select the Blank Presentation option. Gwent ACL Partnership August 2015 D Russell 4

5 CREATE A PRESENTATION When you select the Blank Presentation option you will be presented with a PowerPoint Window with a Title Slide layout option.
