Articulate Rapid E-Learning Blog - hundreds of free PowerPoint tips and tricks

I’ve been doing this PowerPoint stuff for so long that I often think the tips I share are common knowledge and everyone knows them. But every time I do a workshop, I’m reminded that what may be old to me is often new to others.

Over the years I’ve shared all sorts of PowerPoint tips and tricks. But with the blog approaching 100,000 subscribers that means there’s a lot of people who probably didn’t see many of the previous PowerPoint posts.

So in today’s post, I’ve included a list with every single PowerPoint tip shared in the blog up to this point. They include tips on creating custom graphics, assembly of interactive elearning, and getting more out PowerPoint’s features.

If you’re looking for a good resource on PowerPoint tips, this is a post worth bookmarking.

To me, one of PowerPoint’s best-kept secrets is its free supply of 1000s of high-quality stock photos.

As you said in your “7 secrets…” post, Microsoft partners with Fotolia and iStockPhoto, and of course many people buy photos from those sites. But with PPT, you get a sizable free sample!
