Access online resources to help you use Microsoft PowerPoint to create a slide show presentation to present data and information to others.


Why you might use Microsoft PowerPoint

PowerPoint is a software programme from Microsoft which you can use to create slide show presentations by adding text, images and videos to a series of slides.

In addition to creating your slide show, PowerPoint offers you functionality to:

  • Collaborate with others and co-author your content by working on a shared online PowerPoint file.
  • Get design ideas for your slides with PowerPoint Designer.
  • Rehearse your presentation in advance and get feedback with Speaker Coach.
  • See your presenter notes and upcoming slides when presenting Live.
  • Enable your audience to open hyperlinks within your slides, and translate slide contents into their chosen language.
