This is a well-written article that explores an easy-to-overlook yet very important topic. We've all sat through "death by powerpoint" presentations. The authors did a thorough yet succinct literature review and arrived at four well-articulated and compelling research questions. The authors summarize their findings well in the final sentence - that PowerPoint supports learning rather than promotes learning. Even well-developed slides must be well-executed by the presenter.
