Presentations are widely used in a university context (Smith & Sodano, 2011). Students, as individuals or groups, are required to deliver presentations throughout the semester some of which are assessed. While students do receive input about how to deliver effective presentations in language and communication subjects, one of the key elements for a student to improve presentation ability is practice and feedback (Januin & Stephen, 2015). Numerous methods have been employed to do this including practicing in front of a mirror, recording oneself on a mobile device, practicing with friends using peer feedback (De Grez et al., 2012), doing short in-class presentations (Robinson, 2015) and teachers providing feedback. The presentation considers the use of an artificial intelligence application on Microsoft PowerPoint to enable students to evaluate multiple aspects of their presentations including pronunciation and fluency, language, and presentation delivery skills. The presentation will showcase how the application can be used and provide some initial feedback on its suitability by students in universities in Hong Kong.
