Thank you a thousand times over for this incredible course. I have absolutely no experience in PowerPoint, and your course was a life saver in helping me learn the program and produce a top-rate presentation. For those of us not well versed in computers, it can be frustrating taking a course where the instructor assumes you know more than you do. That wasn't the case here. Your instructions were clear, concise, comprehensive ... and far exceeded my expectations. Thank you.

Evan delivers exactly what is promised, and he is an excellent instructor. The course structure is engaging, the pace is quick so there is no opportunity to check out mentally, and Evan truly takes the student from the very beginning to a fully animated video with sound using MS PowerPoint. Excellent course !

I thought the information was presented in a clear, easy to understand manner, and supplemented with examples that took the materials presented from a concept to a reality. The instructor was enthusiastic and energetic, easy to understand, and knowledgeable on the subject matter. The production quality was excellent. In short, this course was top notch. Great job, Evan!

Fast paced, not full of unnecessary fluff and waffle, and delivers on what the course promises. Some parts are slightly out of date in that it uses Powerpoint 2010 rather than the latest (2013), but the differences are minimal and it's easy to work out where the things being referred to are in the latest version. All in all, a very good course.

I've only been going in and out of selected lectures as I'm trying to figure out how to do a few specific things, but Evan's tip on how to make the slide in HD format was worth the course alone! I've also learned a few other things that will make using this much easier for me. It's been several versions ago that I used PowerPoint, so this course is really helpful for refreshing what I know and learning many new features to take my use of PowerPoint to the next level!

I'm only half way through but the course is so excellent I had to jump on here and write a quick review. It's quick, to the point and there's no blah blah stuff - only what you need and none of what you don't. But I got really excited when I got an email this morning about a massive bonus to all the students. Thanks Evan!

Although I had a basic knowledge of animating with PowerPoint before taking this course, Evan does an excellent job of showing exactly how the process works from start to finish and taught me a number of easy short cuts to the process I as not aware of. His step by step method and short, simple explanations kept be engaged throughout the course, and I was able to run through very quickly the first time and go back and review those areas that gave me some new insights. If you are new to the process of animating PowerPoint or just want a refresher, you won't go wrong with this course. Very well done with a professional presentation and quality audio.

Thanks for the course, Evan - great content delivered in [awesome] style! Lost of practical tips and easy to follow. The talking head parts have poorer quality of sound than the voice over slides, but overall it's all good.

Great way to learn animated videos in Powerpoint without going crazy! Loved the details and "show me" video included as well as the templates. Anyone who wondered how it was done, wonder no more - take this course - easy to understand, follow along and learn - fun!

Some courses tend to drag on - but this class really keeps moving - it was fun to watch and I can't wait to use what I learned. My only complaint with the course --- I want more!! I'd like to see more examples of tricks, techniques and effects. Overall I really enjoyed the class and look forward to more from this instructor.

Very well laid out. The video and audio of the course are clear and the instructor has presence. The course is clear cut and to the point, delivering on how to make awesome animated videos in Microsoft Powerpoint, as stated. Not a huge deal, but I would like to have seen different versions of Powerpoint used. I have 2007 and I believe the version used 2010. Still, it was a wonderful course and anyone wanting insight into making videos from Powerpoint should take this course.

Evan is 2 for 2 now. His SEO course was one of the best on Udemy, and in this Powerpoint tutorial he surprised me again with a clever and well-taught lecture on using Powerpoint to create videos. It's something I wouldn't have thought of, and he's convinced me it's easy to create great results. I recommend this course!
