Whether it is for practice or to reach a real audience, students can demonstrate their learning and gain valuable skills for further learning and their future career.
This module is suitable for schools wishing to provide their students with the skills to use presentation applications effectively. These skills are essential not only to carry out specific tasks but also as a starting point for developing more in-depth competences in using these important presentation applications, which are now ubiquitous in workplaces globally.
