Introducing How-to PowerPoint – Scenario-based PowerPoint Tutorials

Posted on

We have been helping users increase productivity using Microsoft Office for many years through our scenario-based tutorials. We have received astounding feedback from people around the world, and our tutorials are available through numerous online training platforms such as Udemy, CyberU and OpenSesame – in addition to our own website Business Productivity.

Although many users and organizations today have transitioned to subscription-based applications through Office 365,  there are many individuals and businesses that still use the previous, standalone versions of MS Office, including Office 2013 and Office 2010. We believe there is a sizable demographic that do not have the financial means to invest in courses on how to use these tools effectively, that would significantly benefit from tapping into the wealth of knowledge we provide through our tutorials.

This is where How-to PowerPoint comes in. How-to PowerPoint is a new website where we make our tutorials available for free to help people across the globe master Microsoft PowerPoint 2013 to enhance presentations with images and videos, capture their audience attention with tasteful animations and transitions and create attractive PowerPoint templates.

Our tutorials consist of 11 scenarios that we believe are essential for Microsoft PowerPoint users. They are easy to follow and are available to view in both video and text formats. The good news is that these tutorials are unrestricted and can be accessible from anywhere in the world, on any smart device, at any time. (If you prefer, the tutorials are also available directly from our YouTube channel.)

What makes How to PowerPoint tutorials different?

  1. Our tutorials focus on the end result rather than accentuating on individual features
  2. Scenario-based learning tutorials are more engaging
  3. Each tutorial demonstrates best practices
  4. They are easy to understand with captions provided for those with hearing impairment or have trouble understanding English

We are so excited about sharing our knowledge with a larger audience and we truly believe our How-to sites will help end-users everywhere increase their productivity. For people who find ads to be annoying, or that desire a richer learning environment, we continue to provide these PowerPoint tutorials ad-free through Business Productivity, Udemy, CyberU and now also through Vimeo On Demand.

We are planning to launch more websites with free tutorials on Microsoft Office. Check out our other How-to sites including that we had launched earlier for free Word 2013 tutorials.
