    <a> this is the tag 'a'. 'a' comes from anchor and this tag is used for redirecting from one HTML document to another… bla bla bla
  • 22. Content Formatting Avoid &quot; all words slides &quot; Keep lines up to 7 (+/-2) for a slide Limit the bullet points to 4-8 Make text into bullet points Words
  • 23. Content Formatting (2)
    • When too much text on a slide
    The audience starts reading and not listening The audience could fall asleep Less flexible for the speaker
  • 24. Arranging the Content
    • Example of a bad slide
    This could be split into at least four bullet points (4 sentences) The title is not fully corresponding with the content
  • 25. Arranging the Content
    • Can be easily transformed in two slides
  • 26. Styling of the Content What Background, Font and Colors to Use?
  • 27. Use contrast background and foreground ! Dark background and light foreground? Light background and dark foreground? or
  • 28. Example of a Badly Selected Background and Colors
    • Can anything be seen?
      • Hardly
      • Image if the sun is lighting the screen
      • This looks much better!
      • But generally this background is too fancy
  • 29. Font Contrast to the background Consistent Large Use common font faces Gives impression of professionalism
  • 30. Example of a Badly Selected Font
