  1. PowerPoint: Beginner Level Pointers Mrs. L. Paschitti

  2. Color & Design • Use a dark background with light text for presentations on computer screens • Use a light background with dark text for presentations on an overhead • Use colors that contrast

  3. Typography • For headings San Serif fonts are easier to read, Verdana or Ariel • All CAPS is difficult to read; combining upper and lower case is easier to read • Limit text slides to 6 bullets or less on a slide • Try not to use a font size smaller than 24 (default is 32)

  4. Graphics • Sources for graphics include: clip art; scanned images, and images from the Web

  5. Animation • Should be used sparingly and for a purpose • Should be used to demonstrate an idea to your audience • Too many effects are distracting and take your audience's attention away from the presentation

  6. Spell Check • Always proofread and check the spelling of your presentation

  7. Keys to a good presentation • Focus on your presentation content, not the PowerPoint software • Put your slides in a clear, logical order • Be consistent throughout your presentation in terms of typography, graphics, design and colors • Minimize clutter • Test your presentation • Always save frequently while creating your presentation

  8. Books & Websites with Tips • Beyond Bullet Points: Using Microsoft PowerPoint to create presentations that inform, motivate, and inspire, by Cliff Atkinson • The Cognitive Style of PowerPoint, by Edward R. Tufte
