How to "do" a PowerPoint presentation in APA Style
The APA manual does not have specific guidelines on how to format a PowerPoint presentation. However, you can follow APA style within your PowerPoint slides when citing your sources. For example, your last slide will be your Reference List. You can see examples of how this can be done in this tutorial from the Bennett College Library: APA Style PowerPoint Presentations.
How to cite a PowerPoint presentation in your References List
When citing online lecture notes, be sure to provide the file format in brackets after the lecture title (e.g. PowerPoint slides, Word document). Don't forget to indent the second and subsequent lines.
