Free Microsoft Office Classes? That's Awesome!

MS Office Image: Free Microsoft Office Classes? That's Awesome!

I'm sure many of you already know about the wide variety of technology classes we offer in the Community Technology Center at Central Library.  For those of you that don't, check out our online calendar!  For those of you who have loyally visited us in the past, we have a whole new roster of Microsoft Office 2007 classes we'll be introducing in August and September.

Here's a list of the Office products we have scheduled to teach in August and September:

GLOSSOPHOBIA, OR HOW I STOPPED WORRYING AND LEARNED TO LOVE PUBLIC SPEAKING

We've all seen the statistic: Most people rate their fear of public speaking higher than fear of death itself.

This commonly cited (and questionable) statement seems to have originated from The Book of Lists (1977), which got its information from an elusive 1973 study called the "Bruskin Report," a study consisting of a small sample of people who were asked to choose and rate their biggest fears from a list which also included heights, bugs, flying, and elevators.

Wow! Zoom! Sweep! with Prezi Presentations

Do you know what a Prezi presentation is? It's ok, neither did I a few months ago. It's kind of a new thing. I'd even wager to say it's The New Thing as far as presentations are concerned.

Prezi is a free cloud-based program that allows users to create moving (literally) presentations by zooming in, out and around visual objects, whether they're images or power words. Think of it like this: Prezi is to Powerpoint as a landline phone is to an iPhone. There are advantages to both, but Prezi has a lot more bells and whistles, capabilities and is all around a more impressive product.

Presenting with panache!

Everyone likes to be a show-off once in a while!  You can learn to make fabulous visual presentations that will knock the socks off your classmates or colleagues using PowerPoint or Prezi!

Students are often asked to present research or report to classmates on subjects for school.  Business professionals sometimes find themselves speaking in front of clients or colleagues.  Don't get caught off guard the next time you're asked to speak.  We can show you how to create a visual component to accompany your oh-so-eloquent voice!
