In addition to being used to create lecture room slides, PowerPoint can also be used as a simple entry-level medium for creating self learning resources for students. This article explains the concept of using narrated PowerPoint slides as a teaching resource and examines some of the advantages and disadvantages of using PowerPoint as the medium for this kind of learning object. Feedback from staff and students who utilised such a resource for a business statistics class is provided and discussed, together with thoughts of future research into the effectiveness of narrated self-learning tools and the appropriate mediums for them.
