Computing - PowerPoint & Databases

Ref: C3842694

The course covers creating a PowerPoint presentation and planning and designing a Database. PowerPoint is a useful tool when giving a presentation, this can be something of interest or for a job interview. During the course we will develop a presentation by developing one on PowerPoint by creating, organising and developing slides that contain text and graphics. Databases are an excellent way of storing large quantities of information that can be sorted and searched very quickly such as names, addresses, telephone numbers or any other type of information that is useful to you. The course will involve how a Database works, plan and edit one and how to enter text and graphics.
