Basic Rules of Presenting

  • COLORS – Use dark lettering on light backgrounds or vice versa
  • INFORMATION – “Quick info,” not novels!

A Really Bad Slide
  • There are a few important things to talk about, like how hard dark on dark is to read.
  • Another important point is that sometimes not all of the slide can be seen – watch your margins.
  • Isn’t it amazing how powerful PowerPoint really is? It truly is a computing marvel.
