Today Option One Publishers announced a new book about Apple’s presentation software Keynote. This e-book contains a complete and compact Apple Keynote course to build professional presentations and animations on your own. Through hands-on exercises, you quickly learn to use the interface, tools and commands. Special attention is given to effects and animations. Also covered are features of third party companies like live polls and surveys in a Keynote presentation. Some exercises cover the prototyping of mobile Apps since Keynote is also being used as a tool for the design and animations of these Apps. The target audience are speakers with various professions (like sales, marketing, education), who need to give professional presentations on a regular basis. Special knowledge is not required, but you do need general Apple computer skills.
