PowerPoint has many different SLIDE LAYOUTS. The one you currently have open is called Title slide. It is the layout most commonly used for the first slide in a presentation. Lets add some information to our slide. It’s easy….just do what PowerPoint tells you to do…click “Click to add title” and add a title for your presentation….click “Click to add subtitle” to add a subtitle (ex. Name, Date, Section)
