    • 23. Design Strategies:
      According to Tufte
      17
    • 24. Use more useful visuals or give handouts
      Use clear headings, numbered lists or very few bulleted outlines
      Design and leverage PowerPoint’s non-linear and non-hierarchical capabilities
      Use plain, non-distracting backgrounds; use information rich and relevant images

    • 34. Design Strategies:
      According to Patrick (me!)
      28
    • 35. PowerPoint should support objectives
      Avoid PowerPoint templates
      Avoid using more than one level of bullets
      Less is better: less words & less slides
      Avoid distracting clip art/unrelated images
      Avoid distracting slide transitions
      Use CARP to improve design
      Avoid using all CAPS
      Leverage multimedia: visual & audio when appropriate
      Don’t let PowerPoint control your presentation
    • 36. We need to think of ways to get students to interact and actively engage in their learning.
      MS Producer is a good tool if you want to add audio and video to your slides.
      It is also free!
      Articulate Presenter offers a seamless (but expensive) alternative to Producer. Also has quiz making tools.
      Impatica is an easy tool to covert PowerPoint slides for the web.
      PowerPoint can used to create learning games to engage students online
      Digital stories can be an effective way to build teacher presence online.
      Move Beyond Static Text
      Interactivity
      MS Producer for PPT
      Articulate Presenter
      Impatica for PowerPoint
      Games
      Digital Stories
