CRJU 4050: Wrongful Convictions

How to Use PowerPoint

PowerPoint presentations work like slide shows. To convey a message or a story, you break it down into slides. Think of each slide as a blank canvas for the pictures and words that help you tell your story.

How to Use Google Slides

Create and present professional pitch decks, project presentations, training modules, and more. With Google Slides, you can build presentations right in your web browser—no special software is required. Even better, multiple people can work on slides at the same time, you can see people’s changes as they make them, and every change is automatically saved.

In the past, you might have used the consumer version of Microsoft PowerPoint outside of work. Now that you have Google Slides, here are some tips to begin using it as your new presentation software.
