We all are living in this digitized era, and with the emergence of the pandemic, we become more remote with each other and start appearing virtually more on the Internet. The pandemic increases the possibility of making a video of the PowerPoint presentations.

PowerPoint is used almost in all aspects of professional and academic work. Let us take an example of project management. When the deliverer is presenting the points on the presentation,

you barely get the time to ask query questions and write the points, so to make your views clearer, you ask the questions and neglect writing the important points.

Here the problem arises, it is necessary to note the important points while being lectured because these points help us in the future with implementing those important points.

When a deliverer makes the video of his or her PowerPoint presentation and sends it to the team in the MP4 format, then it becomes easy for the team to use this presentation while working on the project.

The same goes for academic purposes. A student finds herself or himself in the most difficult place when it comes to writing the important points from the slide when a teacher is delivering it.
