Welcome to EEE's Basic PowerPoint Workshop

About this Workshop

The goal of this workshop is to familiarize you with the essential features of PowerPoint. When you finish this workshop, you will be able to make a PowerPoint presentation for your class that includes multiple slides with transitions, featuring animated text bullets, notes, inserted images, charts, and hyperlinks. You'll understand how to save the presentation for viewing on a remote computer (the lecture hall for example) and/or upload it to your course space on EEE.

About Me

My name is Kim Gerrard and I've been working at UCI as a member of NACS for the better part of 2 decades.

My group within NACS, Instructional Web Technologies, is the custodian of the EEE Web site. I am on a team of Web developers who create and maintain this course management system for the campus. I'm the newest to the EEE group, not quite a year.

My background includes a certificate in Interactive Multimedia from UCI's Extension and on-going training in two of NACS' popular services...Oracle Calendaring, Webfiles.
