#DLNchat: Is PowerPoint Still Relevant?

Jun 29, 2017

“PowerPoint.”

The name strikes fear in some (well, fear that a boring presentation is coming), while for others it still represents a helpful, versatile tool.

On Tuesday members of the EdSurge Digital Learning Network asked: Is PowerPoint still relevant? How has (or hasn’t) PowerPoint improved college lectures? Why does PowerPoint persist despite having gained a reputation for causing serious trauma (“death by PowerPoint”)?

Mark your calendars for Tuesday, July 11 at 8 p.m. EDT / 5 p.m. PDT, to join our next chat, as we discuss: “How might instructors bring experiential learning to the digital realm?” or catch our July 25 chat (at the same time of day) where we’ll ask: “How does accessibility fit into the conversation when supporting faculty who use digital tools?”
