About Microsoft PowerPoint

New Microsoft PowerPoint is cleaner and primed for use on tablets and phones, so you can swipe and tap your way through presentations. Presenter View automatically adapts to your projection set-up, and you can even use it on a single monitor. Themes now come with variations, which make it simpler to hone in on the look you want. And when you’re working with others, you can add comments to ask questions and get feedback.

If you need to give a professional presentation, Microsoft PowerPoint is one of the best tools for creating visuals for people in attendance.

Pros

1. Various tools: design graphics such as banners, charts, and logos. Calendars, photo albums, screen recordings, and resumes are some of the other applications.
2. Customization in detail
3. It is appropriate for beginners.
4. Simple sharing: Microsoft Office includes tools that enable me to upload my PowerPoint presentation to the cloud.

Cons

The only thing for me: is having too much information on a slide can be overwhelming.

PowerPoint - A tool for helping EL Teachers prepare and EL Students learn

Overall, PowerPoint is the bread and butter of my planning as an English Learner teacher. It is easy enough for students to work within using Office 365 and simple and structured enough for me to plan in. It is the application I use more than any other, and I will continue using it moving forward.

Pros

I love using PowerPoint on a daily basis to plan my lessons using embedded videos and auto, different fonts, easily manipulated informatjon, synced up to OneDrive consistently, and easy to present. I also use the collaboration and connection with OneDrive Assignments and Office 365 to always save my work and also be able to send specific versions of assignments to students by sharing a specific link. It alleviates the pressure of using other softwares and instead allows a consistent and meaningful way to plan and also be consistent as a structure for students to anticipate and comprehend.

Cons

The thing I like least about the software is how easy it is to accidentally manipulate different pieces of informatjon on a PowerPoint slide. Since my students are entering computer users often as well, when I send them a link to collaboratively or independently work on a document, they often accidentally move or delete a text box I was wanting them to work in.

Missing features and difficult to use

I have been using presentation software since Aldus Persuasion. When Adobe, who Aldus merged with, discontinued Persuasion, I had to switch to the much less capable PowerPoint. Over the years, PowerPoint added in some of the cool features of Persuasion. But it took Microsoft several years to make it work as smoothly as Persuasion and they never got it completely right. But it was the only option, at the time. Eventually, Apple introduced Keynote for Mac, which included most of what had been in Persuasion and much more. It took them a couple of years to get it right. But during that time, they kept adding in new features. The more I used Keynote, the less I liked PowerPoint. Today, I only keep PowerPoint around for opening someone else's PowerPoint files. I have found Keynote to be a far superior product, both in features and ease of use. I can quickly and easily do things in Keynote that totally baffles PowerPoint pros. PowerPoint never was all that good, to begin with. It only stayed around because it was promoted as part of MS Office, to be the "standard." It did get better, over the years. But it still lags far behind Keynote. But if you're not a Mac user, it's your only real choice, since Keynote only works on Mac.

Pros

The only pro that I can think of is that you can open those PowerPoint files that you occasionally get in emails. It's probably quite acceptable for simple slide shows, with simple transitions. But that's where it ends. If you want your presentation to look really professional, this is not the software for you.

Cons

It's far more difficult to do some transitions in PowerPoint than in Keynote for Mac. It's like you're doing things that it was not designed to do. There are also some transitions that I do in Keynote that I have yet to figure out a way to do in PowerPoint. It's just awkward to use. It also requires more steps to do certain things (i.e. you have to apply time-consuming kludges to make certain things work). It's very basic and definitely NOT for professional looking presentations.

Escribir presentaciones con pocos clic y además te diviertes enseñando

En la actualidad, Microsoft PowerPoint es un programa de presentación muy fascinante a pesar de la emergencia de varios otros programas en el mundo. Una de las cualidades más sobresalientes es la facilidad y la rapidez con la que puedes crear tu presentación en este programa, ya sea para que tu mensaje tenga un caracter educativo, de reforzamiento de una idea o para clarificar dudas en alguna información específica. Su uso se adapta fácilmente para cada situación debido a que es un hábito adquirido en las clases de computación, que difícilmente será cambiado por otro programa. Como dicen varios, Microsoft PowerPoint es la "herramienta popular más usada" a la hora de hacer presentaciones. Y con esto lo digo todo.

Pros

Una de las funciones más atrayentes de este software es la facilidad con la que utilizas cada página de presentación, porque uno, dos o tres clic bastan para crearla.
Después viene lo más divertido porque empieza lo más fácil del trabajo:
-Inserté las fotografías desde mi laptop o desde la web con facilidad.
-Los textos y gráficos se disponen automáticamente en un formato claro y de fácil uso.
-Uno no puede cometer errores ortográficos con el corrector automático casi siguiéndote los pasos y va alertándote para que escribas con precisión. A todos nos gusta escribir con claridad y sin errores.
-El modificar cualquier fuente o cualquier tamaño de fuente es muy atrayente para el que desarrolla su presentación.
-Aparte de las funciones de "cortar" y de "pegar" que uno ha aprendido en el uso del Microsoft Word, también es muy importante el uso de "importar" tablas que fue diseñada en este mismo sistema.

Cons

-Sería increíble que PowerPoint asumiera automáticamente que deseo que mis transiciones provengan de la izquierda en lugar de la parte inferior. Nunca utilizó una transición desde abajo.
-Aprender las teclas de control permitió que mi trabajo sea mucho más ágil, aunque el encontrar las teclas de método abreviado aún es un desafío para cualquiera. Sería muy útil un método de este tipo, con un menú para usar las teclas adecuadas.
-Se debería tener las posibilidades de guardar las presentaciones de PowerPoint en mi laptop y también en OneDrive.

There has not been a solitary day over the most recent 10 years, where a show has been made and Powerpoint isn't utilized. Powerpoint is an extremely incredible programming, and greater part of the associations, schools, understudies, everybody need to figure out how to stay aware of this age. Powerpoint has been basic, and best - it is one of the main thing understudies are educated on PCs and which they need to keep in mind and utilize even in their positions.

Pros

The main star that I can imagine is that you can open those PowerPoint documents that you periodically receive in messages. It's most likely very OK for basic slide shows, with basic changes. Yet, that is the place where it closes. Assuming you need your show to look truly proficient, this isn't the most ideal programming for you.

Cons

At the point when you add an excess of media like sound, and recordings, the PowerPoint will generally turn out to be slow and it makes me anxious, so I need to represent document size not to surpass a specific sum which requires some investment and may not bring out precisely what I needed to bring out in entirety utilizing the show. Too, embedding a video can be made simpler, rather than stacking the whole video into the .pptx document, the product can be made in such a manner the client can reference that video area on the web or locally inside the pc or locally inside the blaze drive so when that slide is reached, the video can stack without dialing the show back, on the grounds that it makes the slides likewise take long to stack.
