    1. Making your PowerPoint presentation shine

    2. Making your PowerPoint presentation shine Things to Consider: Font : style, size, colour, contrast or contrast Content : notes, headings, bulleted list Design Use of images

    3. Making your PowerPoint presentation shine Font : style, size, colour,contrast or contrast Content : notes, headings, bulleted list Design Use of images Wait!! The background? The purple is a nice colour but there’s not much contrast between the background colour and the text colour. It’s hard to read, doesn’t grab your attention.

    4. Making your PowerPoint presentation shine Font : style, size, colour,contrast or contrast Content : notes, headings, bulleted list Design Use of images OK, with a right click on the slide and click Slide Background, you can change the colour and fill effects so that the text stands out a bit more. What about the list? The title? The design? The size of the text? Work needs to be done.

    5. A shadow has been added to this text box. To do this, select a text box and in the Picture Toolbar, click the Shadow icon and try different shadow effects. The colour, transparency and border have been changed in this text box. To make these changes, click the Picture Toolbar and Format AutoShape.

    6. Bomb : an explosive device fused to detonate under specified condition Detonate : to explode with sudden violence Weapon : something (as a club, knife, or gun) used to injure, defeat, or destroy Shell : a metal or paper case which holds the charge of powder and shot or bullet used with breech-loading small arms Explode : to burst violently as a result of pressure from within Missile : an object (as a weapon) thrown or projected usually so as to strike something at a distance Let’s now redesign a list of terms which could be used in a presentation -

    7. Bomb : an explosive device fused to detonate under specified condition Detonate : to explode with sudden violence Weapon : something (as a club, knife, or gun) used to injure, defeat, or destroy Shell : a metal or paper case which holds the charge of powder and shot or bullet used with breech-loading small arms Explode : to burst violently as a result of pressure from within Missile : an object (as a weapon) thrown or projected usually so as to strike something at a distance

    8. There’s a lot of reading here. You risk losing the attention of the audience. Bomb : an explosive device fused to detonate under specified condition Detonate : to explode with sudden violence Weapon : something (as a club, knife, or gun) used to injure, defeat, or destroy Shell : a metal or paper case which holds the charge of powder and shot or bullet used with breech-loading small arms Explode : to burst violently as a result of pressure from within Missile : an object (as a weapon) thrown or projected usually so as to strike something at a distance

    9. Keep it simple - perhaps in this case we could just use the headings we are planning to talk about. Bomb Detonate Weapon Shell Explode Missile

    10. We could change the size of the text so that the words grab the audience. Bomb Detonate Weapons Shell Explode Missile

    11. We could add bullets or numbers. This arrow was found in Zapf Dingbats. Bomb • Detonate Weapons Shell Explode Missile

    12. We could lessen the amount of information to read by just including one definition at a time. Bomb Detonate Weapon Shell Explode Missile an explosive device fused to detonate under specified condition

    13. We could lessen the amount of information to read by just including one definition at a time. Bomb Detonate Weapon Shell Explode Missile to explode with sudden violence

    14. We could lessen the amount of information to read by just including one definition at a time. Bomb Detonate Weapon Shell Explode Missile something (as a club, knife, or gun) used to injure, defeat, or destroy

    15. We could add a definition to each slide in turn - a new slide for each as the terms are being discussed - Bomb Detonate Weapon Shell Explode Missile an explosive device fused to detonate under specified condition to explode with sudden violence something (as a club, knife, or gun) used to injure, defeat, or destroy

    16. The audience then has time to write down information about a previous one, and knows exactly where the discussion is up to. Bomb Detonate Weapon Shell Explode Missile an explosive device fused to detonate under specified condition to explode with sudden violence something (as a club, knife, or gun) used to injure, defeat, or destroy a metal or paper case which holds the charge of powder and shot or bullet.

    17. Think of designs other than lists, too. E.g. Add an Explosion with the words around the edge. To do this, click on AutoShapes in the Drawing Toolbar. Click Stars and Banners, then Explosion 1.

    18. On the slide, click and drag the explosion, to the size you want, and the position you want it to be in. Double click the explosion to change its fill colour and line.

    19. Right click the slide background and click Slide background to change its effects. Add text -

    21. This style has a pattern found in the Fill Effects in the Slide Background choice. The text is the most important part but doesn’t seem to stand out enough. bomb mortar shell weapons TNT explode detonate

    22. This Explosion has a quieter fill and stronger outline. The text isn’t quite so lost. The background could be improved - bomb mortar shell weapons explode detonate

    23. bomb mortar shell weapons explode detonate

    24. This background was found in Slide Background, Fill Effects, Diagonal Down and 2 colours. Still the text could be more dominant - bomb mortar shell weapons explode detonate
