Abstract (ENG): Contrary to popular perception, MS PowerPoint (PPT) is not so much a tool for presentation optimization but rather a tool for optimization of presentation production. This difference has been neglected so far, but from a pedagogical standpoint it is crucial: in the former, the emphasis lies on the effect of the document (educational value for students) and on the usability of the environment (expressional value for educator) in the latter. PPT is often used in educational contexts like lectures, so we ask whether (and if so, how) PPT might be extended so that students become beneficiaries. In this paper we will argue that PPT documents enhanced by content features are pedagogically valuable for authors and readers, as both can benefit from added-value services afforded by the semantics. We support the argument with our implementation of such content features in the CPoint system (esp. CPointStudent) which extends PPT to a "Semantic PowerPoint".
