PowerPoint for Beginners – Program & Animation Basics FREE

PowerPoint basics is a free course where you learn basics about the software and its animation features. Enjoy!

Created by Andrew Pach - Engaged and Passionate PowerPoint & After Effects instructor


Students: 71380, Price: Free

This course is intended for beginner and inexperienced designers, who aspire to learn Microsoft PowerPoint for professional or private use. No matter if you want to add a new skill to your portfolio, create videos, impress at work or start beeing an online entrepreneur. If you have very little experience with the software or are a total beginner and this will be the first time you open the software - this is the right course for you!

It's your best shot at getting on the right track to becomming a pro in the quickest possible way. I am releasing this content totally FREE of charge because it is also intended to be a prequel to any of my existing and future premium courses. So I am both helping people and making sure that I have a point I can direct people to if they never used PowerPoint :)


The course has 2 main goals here which I explain right at the beginning and am completely open about:

  1. I want you to get familiar with PowerPoint and teach you a little bit about the program itself and its animation features.

  2. I want to make sure that in case you are interested in my premium courses but are not sure about my teaching style, the pace of my lectures and if you will be prepared enough to enroll them you will be 100% equipped to do so after taking this course.

Sometimes people did ask me to make a very basic introduction to PowerPoint - and I believe such a little Crash Course is the perfect way to be released as free content since you can ensure that you will have the neccesary "prequel" knowledge to understand any other, more advanced course.

All of my courses are fairly beginner friendly but in case you would struggle I encourage you to take this course first to see how it is. If you already know everything that is taought here - you are overqualified and ready to go :)


What this course IS, and what this course ISN'T. Please read to not be dissapointed!

  • It is a very basic and brief introduction into the software and it's animation features

  • It is very beginner friednly

  • It is aimed for people with little or no prior tech experience or knowledge of PowerPoint

  • It isn't an advanced powerpoint course

  • It isn't a complex, insightful explanation of all powerpoint features

  • It isn't suitable for advanced powerpoint users - if you understand the basics you do not need to take this course

I think I am very clear with my message about the intentions of the course, what is beeing taought here and who is it for. Some of the features you will learn here are bext viewed by reading through the lecture curriculu,.


Some features I want to explain here:

  • What is PowerPoint, what is it used for and the difference between its versions

  • Explaining the interface, how to add slides, save presentations and export them to video

  • Adding & editing shapes, text, pictures and designing an entire slide

  • Using both transitions and animations including all their types and changed timings

  • Creating an entire animation sequence for a slide

  • and of course some more features along the way :)

I highly encourage you to take this course and have some fun inside PowerPoint with me, see you inside! Enroll now!

"very impressed with this course. I devoured all the content"

"Incredible resource!"


"Good quality"

Do you want to know how to turn your 3D modeling or animating skills into an actual business that will get you out of your day job?

Your ability to create wonderful things in 3D isn't just a talent you possess- it is a powerful way to make money and build a profitable business.

My name is Sam Lytle and after creating a unique smartphone app concept called the OggBoard that gained the attention of CNET, Kotaku and Engadget, I built a strong 3D modeling and animating team that successfully developed the hardware and software proof of concept for this idea.

Unfortunately, at this time, I didn't understand vital business concept such as building a brand or developing a platform and OggStudios never left the launch pad.

I have now used the lessons learned from the OggBoard along with my education and experience in civil engineering to build another 3D visualization studio, this time focusing on the transportation and construction industry.

Civil FX now has seven employees in less than 3 years of growth!

In Running a 3D Modeling/ Animation Business I break down the mistakes that 3D artists typically make when stepping into freelancing and how to break free from competing in online freelance marketplaces and move towards finding the best clients with the biggest jobs for ultimate profitability.

I also show how to find out where you want to take your business and how to use your Unfair Advantage and a written business plan to reach this ultimate destination.

I worked for public and private companies for many years before finally having enough private clients to leave my job to pursue Civil FX full time.

Learning how to monetize my 3D modeling and animating skills has changed my life and I am confident that it will change yours as well.

Get ready to completely change the way you think about making money with your talent as a 3D artist!

If you aren't completely satisfied with this course you can get your money back - with no questions asked - for 30 days!!

[What is CBT :Cognitive Behavior Therapy  ? ]

CBT is a treatment that changes how you think (cognition) and what you do (behavior).

You can make yourself feel better by changing these.

Unlike various other dialogue therapies, CBT focuses on “now and here” problems and difficulties. Instead of looking at the causes of past worries and symptoms, look for ways to improve your current state of mind.
