Q. How do you cite a Power Point Presentation from a website?

Answer

Thank you for the question about citing a PowerPoint presentation from a website, which is a bit different than citing a PowerPoint presentation from a class lecture. 

Baker College has an APA Help guide that gives examples of how to cite both a Website and PowerPoint slides from a class lecture. The reference in this case will be a mix of the two of them.

On the APA Help guide, click the tab that says References & In-text Citation Examples.  Click the drop box under Other, choose Course Documents, Class Discussions, Lectures. Scroll down to the very last example which is presentations with a PowerPoint example.

For websites, there is a pull down menu labeled Websites. If the PowerPoint has an author, then choose the example with author. If the slides do not have authors, then chose organization as author. (Example of organization as author: Society for Human Resource Management)

Example:

Society for Human Resource Management. (2013, December 16). This is the title of the presentation: It is amazing [PowerPoint slides]. Retrieved from http://www.TheExactAddressForThisPresentation.org

And then if you quote a slide, it would look like this:

"Someone said something really interesting in this presentation." (Society for Human Resource Management, 2013, slide 21).
