rule number 1
Rule Number 1
  • Keep it Simple!

Power Point presentations should be a means of getting the basic information across.

too much information
Too Much Information
  • Do not overwhelm your audience with too much text.
  • Limit your slides to one picture per.
  • Keep special effects to a limit.
dealing with text
Dealing With Text
  • Too many words and your audience will tune out.
  • Too much text means using smaller font sizes.
  • The audience doesn’t want to hear you read to them.
  • Use the “click to add notes” box if you have lengthy information.
using pictures
Using Pictures
  • Not all of your slides need to have pictures.
  • Too many pictures will also overwhelm the viewer.
  • You want your audience to focus on the message.
special effects
Special Effects
  • Special effects are fun but can slow down your presentation.
  • Animated characters are cute and effective when used in moderation.
effective effects
Effective Effects!
  • If you’d like to use text effects, choose those that come in quickly.
  • To make them go quickly, click on the speed of the effect and be sure to preview.
  • Animations should directly relate to the message.
  • One animation per slide, and use one style of text effects per slide.
