PowerPoint Workshop Tutorials

Microsoft PowerPoint is a program for creating slide presentations, both professional and personal.  A presentation is a document composed of a number of connected slides. Each slide may include concise information and/or images that are relative to the subject matter. PowerPoint makes creating a professional-looking presentation easy by providing a library of preformatted slides and templates. You can easily insert your information and images into a template and use the program’s tools to help you refine the appearance of the presentation. For instance, you may want to create a presentation outlining the steps necessary to bake a cake. You could create a separate slide for each step of the process. These slides could contain both the instructional text and/or images that give your audience a visualization of how each step in the process is completed.

The two classes and one quick start presented for PowerPoint here are:

  • Introduction to PowerPoint XP
  • Intermediate PowerPoint XP
  • PowerPoint Animation QuickStart
These PowerPoint Workshops Tutorials will teach you how to use this presentation application to it fullest. Each PowerPoint workshop contains illustrated explanations and examples of the features being taught, followed by detailed learning activities. In the classes taught here you will learn the skills for using and understanding PowerPoint’s features and commands. By understanding how to use the topics learned in these tutorials, you will be well on your way to creating custom-looking, professional slide presentations that will grab and hold the attention of your audience. West Virginia University provides these free computer and software training workshops and materials (pdf format).

Cascading Style Sheets Tutorial and Slides

Style Sheets, or CSS for Cascading Style Sheets, are sets of rules that allow you to control how your web document will appear in the web browser. CSS overrides the browser’s default settings for interpreting how tags should be displayed, letting you use any HTML element indicated by an opening and closing tag (including the <p> tag) to apply style attributes defined either locally or in a style sheet. Style sheets contain rules, and a rule has several component parts. The first part of the Rule (<p> <H1>) is called the Selector. This tells the browser which element on the page to work with. The curly bracket pair contains the Declaration, which is comprised of a Property (color) and a Value (#333333). Here’s the basic syntax of a rule defined:

Selector { property: value }
Examples:
P {font-family: Times, ‘Times New Roman’, serif; font-size: 8pt; color: red; }
You can specify several properties on one rule:
H1 { font-family: Times, serif; color: black; font-size: 2em; }
You can group tags:
H1, H2, H3 { font-family: Times, ‘Times New Roman’, serif; }
You can also be very specific (contextual selector). In the example below, the rule will only be applied to emphasized text inside of a Heading1 tag. <h1>Heading <em>One</em></h1>
H1 EM { font-family: Times, serif; color: maroon; font-style: italic; }
To apply style sheets to an HTML document you can use a single linked (or external) style sheet. Use a single style sheet (in a separate file, saved with the .css suffix) to define multiple pages. A typical .css file is a text file containing only style rules (No javascript comments, no HTML or anything else, only CSS), as here:
P {font-family: non-serif; font-size: medium; color: red}
H1 {font-family: serif; font-size: x-large; color: green}
H2 {font-family: serif; font-size: large; color: blue}
To apply a linked .css style sheet (“stylesheetname.css” in the example below) to an HTML page, a <link> tag is added to the page header:
<link rel=”stylesheet” href=”/pathname/stylesheetname.css” type=”text/css”>
Creating a linked style sheet allows you to define your CSS rules in one place. Linked style sheets ease web page maintenance, reduce file size, and increase accessibility.

Why use style sheets?
  • create a set of web pages with consistent appearance
  • easier maintenance
  • separate page structure from page appearance
  • ADA compliance
  • reduce web page file size
  • reduce your reliance on non-standard tags such as <center> and <font>

The following CSS Tutorial Workshop and Slide Presentation, from West Virginia University, will teach you more on how to use and code web Style Sheets. The CSS workshop contains illustrated explanations and examples of the concepts being taught, followed by detailed learning activities.

Excel Tutorial Workshops

Microsoft Excel is a spreadsheet program which enables you to set up and maintain budgets, perform financial and scientific analyses, and create graphs. A spreadsheet is a grid of cells arranged into rows and columns. Rows are identified by numbers and columns are identified by letters. A cell can be referred to by its address, which is the column letter followed by the row number, e.g. A1, B5, Q37. Text, numbers, or mathematical formulas can be entered into the cells. Formulas are entered in such a way that changing any of the numbers they reference will automatically update the calculated value. You can also create labels for cells and ranges of cells. Worksheets are grouped into workbooks. You can have a number of spreadsheets stored under the one filename. To access a worksheet, simply click on one of the tabs.

These Excel Tutorial Workshops will teach you how to use this spreadsheet application. Each Excel workshop contains illustrated explanations and examples of the features being taught, followed by detailed learning activities.
