Starting a PPT

  1. 1. Starting a PowerPoint Some steps to guide you….
  2. 2. Layout <ul><li>Before you do anything else: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Decide how you will separate parts of your presentation. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>In my example, I used the following categories: </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Description, Habitat, Location, Management Problems, Why Its Threatened. </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>I have about one slide per category. </li></ul></ul></ul>
  3. 3. Start with Text <ul><li>Use the KISS philosophy: K eep I t S imple, S tupid. </li></ul><ul><li>Your text should be nothing more than talking points, not paragraphs. </li></ul><ul><li>It should help you remember what you want to tell you audience during your presentation </li></ul>
  4. 4. Backgrounds <ul><li>Sometimes, less is more. You don’t need crazy colors and wild designs to get your audience’s attention. </li></ul><ul><li>Too much color and “fluff” can actually distract from your presentation. </li></ul>
  5. 5. Graphics <ul><li>Pick a few to enhance some slides, but don’t go overboard </li></ul><ul><li>You don’t need a picture on every slide </li></ul><ul><li>Again, too many pics can be a distraction to your intended audience </li></ul>
  6. 6. Citations <ul><li>ALWAYS cite your sources, NO exceptions!!!!! </li></ul><ul><li>Give credit where credit is due: author, title, date, URL, etc. should all be used in your citation whenever possible and/or applicable. </li></ul>
