It depends on whether the PowerPoint is available online or was presented as part of a lecture during class.


If it is available online it is treated as a website.

Author's Last Name, First Initial. Second Initial if given. (Year Presentation Was Created). Title of presentation: Subtitle if any [PowerPoint presentation]. Retrieved from Name of Website if given: URL


Smith, J. (2017). Dystopian Literature [PowerPoint presentation]. Retrieved from COM Blackboard Website:

If it was in class, it is treated like a personal communication.

(First Initial of Faculty Who Gave Lecture. Second Initial if known. Last Name, personal communication, Month Day, Year lecture took place)
