  • most of the time it is used as a Text and Picture slideshow with animations and sound effects
  • the presentation is more than likely linear
  • and it is a regurgitation of facts
But PowerPoint presentations can be made exciting, informative and interesting just by deciding on the delivery of the information.
The following slideshow can be used to demonstrate to students the different ways PowerPoint can be used present information.
