What does "upgrade" mean? How is this different than the free version?
There is a free sample of this course that has a few of these lessons. However, the upgrade (paid version) includes the full course, which includes an additional 40 minutes of video and 2 additional worksheets. The free version does not include the tech training videos (editing your Master slides), help with removing text off your slides, additional help with creating a new template, your #1 enemy to slide design, or why/when slide design matters. Plus, the free version is delivered as an email course across 8 days, whereas you get instant access to everything with this upgrade (paid version).
Who is this course for?
This course is for academics, researchers, evaluators, scientists, non-profit service providers/advocates who want to improve their slide-based presentations. This is for people who need to share data-heavy or technical information in ways that help their audience learn that material. This course is not for wall street bankers or people who want to create things like pitch decks to obtain investors.
Is this only for PowerPoint users?
Yes and no. All of the general lessons apply to your slides, regardless of which specific program you use. The 2 tech training videos (about editing the master slides) is in PowerPoint because that's what most of my students use. However, I personally use a Mac and can add a Keynote version if there are requests for it! Email me at firstname.lastname@example.org if you'd like to have a Keynote version of those tech trainings.
What is the refund policy?
Because you can binge-watch this entire training in about 1 hour, there are no refunds for this course.
