Why use Microsoft PowerPoint?

Microsoft PowerPoint can give you everything you need to create a professional-looking presentation. Faculty can choose themes and layouts that work best for them when it comes to creating class lessons, assignments, and multimedia.

Faculty can also make their PowerPoints more engaging with animations. In moderation, animated text or objects can be used to hold students’ attention and make the lesson a bit more fun. [More Information]

Microsoft’s website also has an Educator Community that allows faculty to connect and collaborate with other educators around the world. You can also participate in lessons and training to earn certificates and badges. [More Information]
