Gloria - PowerPoint Level 2, .
Covered a good range of topics and exercises. The course was very interactive which was great. I feel like the course needs to be longer to allow more time to build and practice skills or perhaps offer a beginner and advanced course. There is an awful lot that the software can do. It would be useful to be able to follow along with the manual as I'm worried I'll get lost when I try this in practice. -SharePoint Site Owner Adelaide
