Teaching with PowerPoint in Teams or Zoom

Create and Deliver engaging PowerPoint-based teaching and training in Zoom or Microsoft Teams

This course is for anyone who teaches or trains others in business or professional skills such as professors, lecturers, faculty, subject matter experts, trainers, and speakers. If you had to move your teaching to Microsoft Teams or Zoom, you've gotten over the initial shock by now. You struggled through the first few weeks and got through it.

But now you've realized that things are not going back to the way they were before. Online teaching is here to stay. Yes, it may be a combination of in-person and online, but the online teaching will be a part of your job from now on.

You want to get better teaching online. You have the opportunity to take some time to learn the techniques and approaches in PowerPoint so your lessons in the future and more effective and engaging.

Like you, I moved my in-person professional workshops to an online format. I helped others make the move to online teaching. And I continue to create new and innovative ways to engage students when using PowerPoint to teach online.

This course is not about instructional design or course development from scratch. I assume you are already an expert in your field and you have experience teaching your course in a classroom. This course will teach you the skills you need to elevate your online teaching above the ordinary that students are seeing. You can stand out, have better teaching results, and enjoy yourself more.

If you want a brief preview of some of the ideas I share, watch the video below. Look at the full curriculum to see everything that is covered. Don't miss the bonus section on how to create a pre-recorded lesson that has your video beside your slides and do all of it just using PowerPoint - no video editing software required.

The lessons are a combination of written ideas and videos so you have the knowledge to apply what you learn to your own classes.

I've made the course affordable because I want online education to get better quickly. I don't want students to be complaining about learning remotely. I want them to recognize great teaching and expect it of everyone they learn from.


"As someone who has been leading online programs for over a decade, I consider myself a pro on how to make virtual learning work. Well, this ‘pro' went back to school with Dave’s course, and learned many more new tips, tricks, and tools than I expected. From how to make handouts interactive to making your visuals really pop, I was thrilled to get new insights that I will apply immediately. No matter how much you think you know, you’ll be surprised at how much you can take away from this course. I highly recommend it!"
