Drawing In PowerPoint

So the question came up this week in a EMSEducast Podcast that I  was invited to as a guest (to hear podcast click here) about tracing EKGs in PowerPoint and how to do that. I promised my host that I would do a tutorial to show how to do this.  Normally I would draw whatever I needed in Flash, Illustrator or Photoshop, but I realize many people do not have these programs, so I decided to take a closer look at the drawing tools in PowerPoint. To my amazement, I found that I could do quite a bit in PowerPoint. I first decided to “warm up”  tackling some more difficult drawings like tracing a heart illustration and drawing a pencil with highlights. Once I was warmed up I got to the request of the week and started off with the first tutorial on Basic Drawing in PowerPoint where I show you how to trace a EKG and the second tutorial covers how to make a basic grid in PowerPoint using a square as the starting point . Check it out and let me know what you think.
