To cite a PowerPoint presentation in your text, you'll use the typical in-text citation format of author's surname and year of publication. 

For a reference entry of the files/slides, use the following:

  • the author’s last name and first initial or the authoring organization
  • the year of publication
  • the title of the slides in normal font
  • a bracketed description of the type of media
  • retrieval information

Example:

Walden University Writing Center. (2013). Writing the literature review [PowerPoint slides].Retrieved 

    from http://writingcenter.waldenu.edu/415.htm

  

To create a reference entry for a recorded webinar or webcast, use the following:

  • the author’s last name and first initial or the authoring organization
  • the word Producer in parentheses to show that the author and producer are the same
  • the year of publication
  • the name of the program in italics
  • a bracketed description of the type of media 
  • retrieval information

Example:

Walden University Writing Center. (Producer). (2013). Writing the literature review [Video webinar]. Retrieved

     from http://writingcenter.waldenu.edu/415.htm

 

*Of course, you will want to insert a hanging indent for each reference entry. See the Academic Skills Center's Microsoft Word tutorials for APA formatting to learn how to create a hanging indent.
