Using Microsoft PowerPoint

PowerPoint Program

What is PowerPoint? PowerPoint is a complete presentation graphics package. It gives you everything you need to produce a professional-looking presentation. It offers word processing, outlining, drawing, graphing, and presentation management tools- all designed to be easy to use and learn. PowerPoint uses a graphical approach to presentations in the form of slide shows to accompany the oral delivery of a topic. This program is widely used in business, classrooms and at home, and is an effective training and viewing tool. PowerPoint is one of the simplest computer programs to learn. It is used worldwide for presentations. Anyone can create stunning presentations such as photo slide shows for home use, complete with background music. Presentations can be saved as "stand-alone" shows meaning that anyone without the PowerPoint program may view them.
