Abstract

PowerPoint has become more than a linear presentation tool. The later versions of PowerPoint support branching
navigation, custom buttons and menus. These features make a powerful and flexible product for creating custom lessons. In
addition, a PowerPoint show can include Web links, and a variety of files created in other programs. PowerPoint has also
streamlined the process of designing for the Web. When using presentation software in the classroom it can be applied for
education in three general formats: Teacher to Audience; Teacher to Individual; Student to Audience, depending on the structure
of the presentation. Additional two types of interactivity that can be included in any PowerPoint presentation are navigation and
feedback. When creating PowerPoint presentation, design considerations should be followed concerning number of
items/points, font size, and color applications. Additional the use of multimedia (such as sound, images, and video) is an
excellent way to enhance a presentation.
