  • Many of the slides contained within this presentation were designed to mimic the online experience. By taking screen shots of various web pages and inserting these pictures into the presentation the audience gets the impression that I am using the Internet when in actuality I never left Power Point. This is useful when making presentations in locations without Internet access. It also prevents a presentation from being ruined because “the network was down”. I’ve also seen presentations that suffer when Internet connections are so slow that it seems to take forever for pages to load. I made a note on the pages that utilize screen shots.
