Possibilities 01: Static PowerPoint vs. Dynamic PowerPoint

October 5, 2017

Possibilities 01: Static PowerPoint vs. Dynamic PowerPoint

Many people seem to consider PowerPoint to be a tool to provide and display static info. Now, what do I mean by static info? Static info is something you feed in, and it never changes unless you go and make changes manually. When I say static info, the info could be anything: sentences, figures, web links, pictures, charts, diagrams, videos, and even sound bytes!

But you get the irony, right? All this info in PowerPoint is static. What you put in stays right where you decided to put it. Nothing updates on its own. There is no intelligence involved, and life continues, just as it did for eternity. If that's what you want, then who can deny that PowerPoint is an awesome program.

Explore how the concept of dynamic data works within PowerPoint, and how it enriches and speeds up your slide creation experiences.
