PowerPoint's forgotten powers
FEBRUARY 8, 2007
Rapid authoring tools (RATs) like Presenter and PointeCast hoover in your slideshows and, with a little bit of dressing up, spit out LMS friendly broadcast shows. In the main these are suited to low level tasks like broadcasting new services or products - where content simply needs to be made available and tracked. The author/SME is using something they are happy with and a neat master slide can (if they know how to use it) lead to something that is at least passable.
