PowerPoint and education. Both of them are related to each other in so many ways. PowerPoint is often used in education, and education about PowerPoint itself is important, especially if you want to create better slides that leave an impact.

As such, PowerPoint is an easy program to learn, and that may be its biggest undoing! Many PowerPoint users believe they know everything they need, and that’s the whole problem! PowerPoint may look similar to its more famous siblings - Word and Excel, and yes, in many aspects it does function identically. But in many ways, it works in a different way too. While Word and Excel work with words and numbers, in PowerPoint you can bring your words and numbers to life! No, this does not mean that you animate text like a fish - or animate a few bullets that cascade like a waterfall! You need to learn how to use these options in PowerPoint carefully, and that’s why PowerPoint education is so important.

Now that we have discussed why you need to learn more about PowerPoint, what about some links to PowerPoint learning resources online?
