Outline

o Make your 1st or 2nd slide an outline of your


presentation
Ex: Previous slide
o Follow the order given in the outline for the rest
of the presentation
o Use title of each slide
Why Good Tool to Use?
o Easier than 3 X 5 Note Cards
o Organized presentations are heard better
o More information can be given and
remembered
o Picture can be used, which is worth a thousand
word
o Handouts can be given to the audience.
Possible Applications!
o Project Overview
o Selling your Ideas
o Teaching through Power Point
o Corporate Organization
When launching new product into the market
Basic Things to Remember!
o Use 1-2 slides per minute of your presentation
o Write in point form, not complete sentences
o Include 4-6 points per slide
o Show one point at a time:
Will help audience to concentrate!
Will prevent audience from reading ahead!
o Avoid distracting animation
o Use key words and phrases only

Cont.
o This page contains too many words for a
presentation slide. It is not written in point
form, making it difficult both for audience to
read and for you to present each point.
Although there may be the same number of
points on this slide, it looks much more
complicated. In short, your audience will spend
too much time trying to read this paragraph
instead of listening to you.
Fonts
o Use at least an 18-point font
o Use different size fonts for main points and
secondary points
2nd level font is 24-point, the main (1st level) font is
28-point, and the title font at least 36-point
o Use a standard font like Times New Roman or
Arial
o Do not use very small size and complicated font
Cont.
o If you use a small font, your audience wont be able to read what you have written

o CAPITALIZE ONLY WHEN NECESSARY. IT


IS DIFFICULT TO READ

o Dont use a complicated font


Colour
o Use a colour of font that contrasts sharply with
the background
Ex: blue font on white background
o Use colour to reinforce the logic of your
structure
Ex: light blue title and dark blue text
o Use colour to emphasize a point
Use very rarely
Cont.
o Using a font colour that does not contrast with
the background colour is hard to read
o Using colour for decoration is distracting and
annoying.
o Using a different colour for each point is
unnecessary
Using a different colour for secondary points is also
unnecessary
o Trying to be creative can also be bad
Background

o Use backgrounds such as this one that are


attractive but simple
o Use backgrounds which are light
o Use the same background consistently
throughout your presentation

Avoid backgrounds that are distracting or difficult


to read from.
Graphs/Charts

o Use graphs/charts if possible as it is easier to


comprehend & visualize the trend
o Always title your graphs
o Minor gridlines are unnecessary
o Font is too small
o Colours are illogical
o Title is missing
Cont. o Shading is distracting

Spelling and Grammar
o Proof your slides for:
spelling mistakes
the use of repeated words
grammatical errors if any
Plagiarism !
o It is basically using the words, ideas, research
results, formulae, images, or data from another
person without giving credit to the originator.
o The best way to avoid it is to acknowledge the
author of the original work that you've used.
Ex:
T. Berners-Lee, J. Hendler, & O. Lassila. (2001). that incorporating artificial
intelligence techniques into the mechanisms of the Internet will result in new
systems with potential to make a large impact on society.
