The Use of PowerPoint in the Public Speaking Classroom.
LeBlanc, H. Paul, III
In response to online discussions regarding whether communication educators should teach students in public speaking how to utilize Microsoft PowerPoint for developing visual aids, this paper identifies arguments both for and against the practice. The paper begins by delineating the three relevant questions and describes the positions offered by participants in the CRTNet listserv discussions of late November through early December of 2000. The paper also suggests another issue that was not discussed: the ethics of promoting the product of a monopolizing corporation. The paper concludes by offering some tips for students preparing computer-mediated visual aids. A list of the CRTNet participants and tips for using presentation software are attached. (Author/RS)
