Starting point to revising the powerpoint
Purpose statement begins with “To…”
Other than the explanation slide, there should be no complete sentences on your slides. All that text should be in the speaker’s notes. Only main points should appear on the slides,
Consider decreasing the opacity of your background slides or adding a text box as your content is difficult to read. using keywords or phrases instead of complete sentences on the slides. The background images are excellent!
Take care that your slide set displays the audience-friendly structure demonstrated in the models provided in the Weeks 5 and 6 Modules. Here’s a full slide set with annotations in bold type within brackets in its Notes spaces. You may remember it from our Week 6 writing workshop directions. The annotations in the Notes spaces follow up on the structure that Bailey advocates at http://www.edbailey.org/pagesdesign/pages/homedesign.htm (Links to an external site.)Links to an external site.
Please view this slide set only in View –> Normal.
Before filling out the rubric for your final slide set, I will view it both in Slide Show mode (to see your use of Animations/Builds) and in View –> “Normal” (to get the gist of your oral delivery for each slide). As needed, I will include comments within bold brackets in Notes spaces below slides.
SEE GRADING RUBRIC!!
Design A: Slide 1
Include the basic information your audience needs to see before you begin to speak:
Imitate the simplicity and clarity of the sample slides, above, that you have just critiqued.
Provide a brief informal explanation of your term (if it’s not “common knowledge”).
Imitate the brevity and the ample use of white space you saw in the sample slides, above, that you have just critiqued. To apply the design “Rule of Thirds,” place your content closer to your slide title than to the bottom of the slide, that is, out of the “dead center” of the slide, vertically.
Beginning on this slide, and continuing throughout, use a consistent type size (32 points or larger) for your slide titles. Consistently use 32-point type for your body text.
Purpose OR bottom line slide
State your purpose as a presenter (not the purpose of your term!). For example, your purpose could be “To acquaint a lay audience with the term Windows Registry as it operates in investigations of computer crime.”
Consider adding to the speaker’s Notes space below this slide, for oral delivery, a statement about how the talk will benefit the audience.
Imitate the concise approach of the sample slides, above, that you have just critiqued. Place your phrase closer to the title of the slide than to the bottom.
Please do not present your purpose as a list.
Use a Bottom Line slide, instead of a Purpose slide, only when your primary purpose is to persuade (rather than to inform).
Slides 4 & 5
Blueprint slide & first moving blueprint slide
List the parts of your presentation in parallel grammatical structures, as you did in your illustrated, business-style report in Weeks 2 and 3.
Create a slide design that is related to your design for body (or content) slides but that is distinctly different. Your audience needs to immediately recognize your blueprint slides as the organizers of your talk rather than as new content.
Limit your blueprint to two to five more-or-less equal parts.
Imitate the concise language you saw in the sample slide sets listed above. Place your blueprint list closer to the title of the slide than to the bottom.
On your first “moving” blueprint, announce your first section of your talk with a check mark, a special bullet style, a bold color, or some other means.
