With love from the computer lab

I'm taking the government sponsored ICT course today for Microsoft PowerPoint and I'm writing this from the lab where the class is held. Surprisingly it is not as boring as I thought, although I do know the basics already. We're using the newer version from what I'm used to (2010), the new features are much easier and funner to use.
Things we learn in this class
1. Adding titles and texts to blank slide with penguins as background.
2. Same thing as above this time using koala's for background.
3. Playing with pictures effects.
4. Playing with clip arts
5. And more which is not in the screen captures eg: adding charts...
This one I particularly like
Matching two pictures of Shih Tzu (although they're not my favorite breed of dogs) with the rose background, using Picture Effects > Soft Edges > 50 points. And added Artistic Effects > Paint Brush.

Insert Chart
Look at this, isn't that awesome. You can edit straight away without having to manually open Microsoft Excel and convert it into your Presentation slides. I'm seriously amazed (yeah I know, sakai bah, don't have this feature in the older versions lor)

Insert Smar Art
I bet I can start making awesome info graphs with all these Smart Art Graphics. Never thought to use Powerpoint for this purpose before.
