    Learnt a lot more with Powerpoint


    Alan is very informative, short and sweet lessons.
    Ideally not the best video to watch on my phone, as can’t see all the details. But still great to listen and follow, and watch and try later on.
    I’m most amazed at how much you can really do through PowerPoint now a days, and has come along way since I last used it. And I’m going to use it more for my poster makings too.
