Getting Started
  • Start with an Outline of your Presentation
  • Establish your main supporting points
  • Storyboard Slides
  • Sketch location of text and graphics
  • Sequence slides so there is a clear flow
  • Be conservative in the use of visuals
  • Keep the design Simple

5
Formatting Typography
  • Serif
  • Times New Roman Garamond

San Serif Arial Verdana
Decorative Chiller Jokerman
  • Script
  • Brushed Script Mistral

6
Formatting Typography
Font Guidelines
  • Headings San Serif
  • Increases readability
  • Body Serif
  • Helps to guide the eye through longer passages
    of text
  • Script and Decorative
  • Use sparingly or only for special emphasis

7
Formatting Typography
  • Are the fonts you used on the computer where you
    are giving the presentation?
  • If not, this may happen

To avoid this problem Use fonts that are
standard on most computers
8
Formatting Typography
  • USING ALL CAPITOL LETTERS IS VERY DIFFICULT TO
    READ. ESPECIALLY IF YOU USE MORE THEN ONE OR TWO
    WORDS. USE SPARINGLY FOR EMPHASIS OR TITLES.
  • Combining Upper and Lower case letters provides
    better readability
  • Make sure to use a type size that is large enough
    so the people in the back of the room can read
    it. Generally the minimum size should be 22 -
    24 point font.

9
Formatting Typography
  • 80 pt
  • 66 pt
  • 48 pt
  • 40 pt
  • 32 pt
  • 24 pt
  • 18 pt
  • 14 pt

10
Formatting Typography
  • Consistency
  • Font style
  • Size
  • Limit font styles
  • 2 - 3 per slide

11
Formatting Typography
  • Always Spell Check
  • Proofread your Presentation

12
Drawing Graphics
  • Use graphics to make a point that cant be done
    as well without the illustration

Conflict in the Middle East Will the US invade
Iraq?
13
Drawing Graphics
  • Poor use of Graphics
  • Used to fill space
  • Unclear poor quality
  • Too many - cluttered
  • No clear purpose

14
Drawing Graphics Animation
  • Animation should be used sparingly and for a
    purpose, not just be a
  • dancing dog

One good use of animation is to demonstrate and
idea to your audience
15
Drawing Graphics Animation
  • Movie Sound Files
  • Can enhance a presentation when they are used
    properly
  • Note These types of files can take up a lot of
    file space.

16
Custom Animation
  • Use the custom animation feature to control how
    text and graphics appear on your slides

17
Custom Animation
  • This slide is an example of what not to do!
  • Too many effects are distracting and take away
    from the message
  • Too much text is also a problem the audience
    ends up reading the slide instead of listening to
    the message - you can use notes to remind
    yourself what you want to say. Everything you
    are talking about should not be on the slide. The
    slide should just be reinforcing your main points.
  • Very poor design and use of space YUCK!!!

18
Custom Animation
  • Use with Moderation
  • One of the best effectsis APPEAR
  • Easy to Control
  • Focus attention
  • Dim and Hide
  • Practice your Presentation
  • If you get tired of the effects your audience
    will too!

19
Color and Design
General Rule to increase readability
For presentations that are onscreen use a dark
background with light text for better readability
For presentations on an overhead use a light
background with dark text
20
Color and Design
Complementary colors
Complements are on opposite sides of the color
wheel
21
Color and Design
Use colors that contrast
22
MS Office
  • PowerPoint allows the user to
  • Import data directly into a presentation
  • Or you can copy and paste items into PPT

23
Linking to the Internet
  • PPT allows you to create links to the internet
  • you can use text links
  • Software Training at UST
  • or you can use graphics as links

24
Printing Options
  • One Slide Per Page
  • Handouts with 2, 3, 6 or 9 slides per page
  • Slides with Notes
  • Outline of Presentation with just the text

25
The Presentation
  • Where you are giving the presentation?
  • Is there a lot of light in the room?
  • How close will people be to the screen?
  • Do you need handouts?
  • Do you have Internet access?

26
Keys to a Good Presentation
  • Consistency throughout presentation
  • Make it easy to follow
  • Avoid distracting effects
  • Graphics that illustrate a point
  • Focus on your presentation not impressing the
    audience with your knowledge of PPT
  • Minimize Clutter
  • Test Your Presentation
