What is Microsoft PowerPoint? PowerPoint is a presentation program that was developed by Microsoft. It’s a fantastic program to use especially when conducting business or training presentations. PowerPoint allows you to combine text and graphics together for a professional looking presentation. Personally, Microsoft PowerPoint is my favorite Microsoft program to use; being that it allows the user to incorporate the important facts when presenting information to others.
PowerPoint is not only used in the business world for meetings and training purposes; but it can also be used in classrooms; by teachers and students. This program has really changed the way presentations are presented to others; when I was younger, I remember coming into a classroom and having to write notes that was posted on an overhead transparency projector, or even written on the chalk or white boards. I thought that was one of the strangest ways to conduct a class being that PowerPoint had been around for years.
PowerPoint has numerous features to offer. With this program, I can make charts, tables, insert images, audio, and video files. Also, one of the great features I learned about after reading some info in my book is that PowerPoint does allow you to create macros. Say you’re creating a PowerPoint presentation for your company and want to use the company logo…the creation of a macro can save you ample amount of time.
I know that I haven’t covered every aspect of PowerPoint in this essay; unless I would be here all day. As I progress in this class I know I will learn more benefits of using Microsoft PowerPoint and I look forward to it.
