APA Formatting for PowerPoint: How to Apply APA Style to PowerPoint Presentations

321 ratings | 98970 views
Guidelines for APA should also be applied to PowerPoint presentations when required. Any use of outside source material must be documented on the PowerPoint slide using APA citation formats from the 6th edition. Because PowerPoint slides are mainly a visual medium, the presenter must know how APA documents elements such as images, tables, graphs, and other media with titles, notes, and APA parenthetical citations. APA style and citation formats still apply to PowerPoint slides although the citations are being using in a different medium.

This video made me want to shove a whole indian village in my anus and call for satan to end up my suffering. This guy sounds like he shoves his finger up his ass when he whipes his ass in the toilet. I also think he smells like beans!

I'll tell you what. APA is not cool. It just makes my work harder than it has to be, but thank you for this video Mr. Taylor. It really was a life saver!

I understand that APA is needed to give people credits for their work. But it's not meant to be a critical part of education on any level. It really serves no purpose to anyone for professors to nick picking APA errors on papers.

David, What about the font type and size?

What about citing in the notes section?
David Taylor (8 months ago)
APA does not use a "Notes" section. It uses a system of in-text citations that refer to Reference citations, as shown.

Question: Does the title page still need a running head like reports would?
David Taylor (9 months ago)
No running header for PowerPoints.

Hope the creator of APA format is inflicted by the fleas of a thousand rats for the irritation they have caused college students.

In my perspective, overly emphasize on APA cause focusing on the formatting rather than the content, it represents an engrained bureaucracy in academics and indicated the fall of the great U.S.A.
