10 Tools Students Shouldn't Live Without

  1. 1. Widescreen Presentation<br />Tips and tools for creating and presenting wide format slides<br />
  2. 2. Widescreen Advantages<br />Hello.<br />The 10 (or so) tools I am listing here are tools that I have found helpful for school & at work. They have different uses, and there are many other tools out in the big land of the Internet that also do a very good job at doing the same things. None of the companies that make any of these tools pay me, unfortunately, so I receive no benefit from choosing them for this presentation. When compiling this list, I wanted to choose software or tools that had a free version (some have versions with more functionality that you can pay for).<br />Side by side material fits more naturally.<br />Widescreen adds drama to graphics and images.<br />
  3. 3. Widescreen Presentation<br />Ten Tools – Ten Purposes<br />Even if you do not have a widescreen display, you can still create and present 16:9 slides. PowerPoint’s Slide Show always resizes your slides to fit any screen.<br />This template is formatted with a 16:9 “widescreen” aspect ratio. It’s a great way to take advantage of laptops, televisions and projectors equipped with widescreen displays.<br />
  4. 4. Widescreen Graphics<br />Access your bookmarks from any computer with internet connectivity. Tag them with keywords to make finding things easy! Here are 2 of the more popular social bookmarking tools.<br />Even a single graphic, such as a chart, can be presented more dramatically in widescreen.<br />
  5. 5. Pictures can also be presented more dramatically in widescreen.<br />Widescreen Pictures<br />
  6. 6. Creating 16:9 Presentations<br />To setup a widescreen presentation, do one of the following:<br />Start with this template. Simply delete the example slides and add your own content.<br />Or, go to the Design tab and open the Page Setup Dialog. Click the Slide Sizedropdown and pick On-screen Show (16:9) (Note: we also support 16:10, which is a common widescreen laptop resolution. )<br />Important: Always start with your slide size set to the aspect ratio you intend to use. If you change the slide size after you’ve created some slides, your pictures and other graphics will be resized. This could potentially distort their appearance.<br />
  7. 7. Slide Show Tips<br />To present in true widescreen, you’ll need a computer and, optionally, a projector or flat panel that can output widescreen resolutions.<br />Common computer widescreen resolutions are 1280 x 800 and 1440 x 900. (These are 16:10 aspect ratio, but will work well with 16:9 projectors and screens.)<br />Standard high definition televisions resolutions are1280 x 720 and 1920 x 1080. <br />Use the Test Pattern on the next slide to verify your slide show settings.<br />
