Taking COMM 100 with me?

One of our projects in the Public Speaking class is to create an effective slideshow to support your Persuasive Speech.  Haven't created a slideshow before or find your skills a bit rusty?  

Consider concurrently enrolling in the self-paced one-unit MJC course OFADM 262: Introduction to Business Presentation Software.  This class will help you get up-to-speed on Microsoft PowerPoint 2016.
