yes i think it's really useful specially during reports, it's a useful way of saving time and resources, you don't have to buy any cardboard or anything for your presentation just create it in your computer you can customize it even better than handwork. it's really useful but my pc doesn't have powerpoint. i didn't know that i have to buy it for me to have it,.

it is, it's so useful, especially when done properly. it's convenient, it's electronic so it's easy to share. but whenever the lcd projector doesn't work, we use OHP, you know, the one with the acetate. :) powerpoint presentations saved my life. haha! but as my prof said, it's kind of diminishing people's knowledge or brain capacity or something because we just use key words so we lose grammar.

Hi Abin her, Yes of course how can a person not agree with that! A Powerpoint presentation helps a person not only in his/her college days but right from their childhood to until retire. Because students can use it to do projects to make a project more attractive and easy. A person can use it to store his old memories there by making that memories golden. A working person needs it for sure to present his ideas about any project So this Question of yours is really needed to be appreciated. Your's , Abindas.

I like PowerPoint a lot for giving presentations. And it's better than the white board if the professor uses other colors. But argh, I hate that the words shake the whole time. Not sure if it's the projector or what. Drives me crazy. Especially with black words on white.

I'm in my third semester of college, and I've made 12 powerpoint presentations so far. It's a great resource because if you're skilled at making them, they're much more interesting than just a lecture. I've seen plenty of bad ones, but our professors give pretty bad grades to people who make them too boring.

yes, its useful in our school reports. It makes reporting easy. It saves time from looking at a bunch of index cards, you can also point at the word you are saying, make some animations, and put some real nice pictures in your report to get the attention of your audience, and when we want to save the info that we have on it, its still there on disk or cd. Not like in the ones in the manila paper, once your done with the report, the paper is just nothing.

Yes, it is quite a good creation by humans. Points can be conveyed effectively in front of large audiences. Talking alone does not provide much of an impact than talking plus some visual information. That way, people are more likely to remember your presentation. It has helped a great deal on all aspects of business and personally too.

Powerpoint is very beneficial to the workplace and even to students. It is also much easier to make and more presentable instead of cartolinas and other types of papers used as visual aid. We use powerpoint presentations during school reports and even as a gift to some of my friends.

Hi, indeed powerpoint presentations are the best way of presening. Yes offcourse there is a style of presentin in a school and at a corporate. However if one is aware of most of the features and can corelate them well the presentation is worth being attended. I still make every report, analysis on powerpoint. Even i conduct meetings on powerpoint. Its my favourite tool from the house of MICROSOFT.

In order to present our report in school, we need a powerpoint presentation. It s lot more convenient than doing the old fashioned way of writing it in a Manila paper and discuss it in front of the class. A powerpoint presentation can have pictures as well. Its a lot more easier to have this. Yep! I agree to you.

I can't now think without Power Point. It is a very very important way to present any kind of Talk anywhere in the small class room to big International events or conference. I think of the person first discovered power point, very intellegent ofcourse and helped us with a tool we never forget about, its almost the only way not Internationally to represent any lecture or speech to a large amont of audience.

yes Powerpoint is very good at making presentations and it's very easy to use. I usually make every presentation in powerpoint it's much more easier then making it on a board or printing out pictures. If the technology is this good why can't we use it, i say. I support making presentations with technology.
