The YouTube video tutorial has detailed, easy to follow explanations about the user interface of Microsoft PowerPoint. This is an effective step-by-step tutorial and a good resource for understanding the functions of the user interface in PowerPoint 2013. Please add a pdf handout with screenshots.
The Presenter mentioned Microsoft Word. Students who have not used Word will not understand the reference to Word when looking at the video. Basic knowledge of Microsoft Office is helpful.
Ease of Use for Both Students and Faculty
This excellent video is easy to follow and understand. The Presenter uses a pointer to demonstrate where to find the relevant information in the user interface. It's helpful to stop/pause/rewind the video while working on a PowerPoint project.
None. Perhaps add a PDF handout with screenshots/captions and additional links. It's very nice to have YouTube captions and it would be great to have a full transcript.
Other Issues and Comments:
Very well constructed, steps presented in logical sequence, being able to see the steps "as they happen" makes the concepts very clear to the viewer. Excellent series of videos.
