  • 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.
