Lesson 4: Formatting Shapes
It's crazy how many ways you can format shapes in PowerPoint. But it is important to learn the different options because almost everything behaves like a shape, with similar formatting tools. In this section, you play with shapes, fills, and outlines, along with effects like shadows and bevels. You also learn to apply this formatting with just a couple of clicks.

Photos are a great way to enhance your presentation, and PowerPoint has some terrific photo editing tools. You learn about the new tool to insert online pictures, remove the background from a picture, recolor pictures, and other ways to format pictures.

Lesson 10: Adding Animations and Transitions
Everybody hates sitting through boring presentations. Transitions and animations allow you an opportunity spice things up. In PowerPoint, however, less is usually more. To ensure your animation doesn't derail your content, make sure it is appropriate and enhances your presentation. Learn some things you can do with animations and transitions.

Lesson 11: Working with Multimedia
The multimedia editing tools are some of the most powerful features in PowerPoint. Learn to edit your audio and video, apply poster frames and fades, sync animation to a video, and create a screen recording of your own.

Lesson 12: Printing and Finalizing Your Presentation
Ever wondered if there is an easy way to strip out all your notes pages so you don't send out a bunch of confidential information by mistake? PowerPoint has a tool to do that, along with many other tools that will help as you finalize your presentation files. You can save your presentation as a PDF, and you can even save it as a video. It's very cool and very easy.

Lesson 13: Setting Up a Slide Show
Probably one of the best features in PowerPoint is the enhanced Presenter view. It’s actually available in previous versions of PowerPoint, but it was harder to use and difficult to find. You spend some time with the new Presenter view; and from there you learn some different ways to set up a slide show and navigate through it.
