Steps to Creating a Nonlinear PowerPoint Presentation First, develop your general idea. As the video mentioned, some people like to draw a plan. Then, collect the tools that you will need: • buttons • photos • web site addresses • documents • media
Steps The first slide is usually a title slide. The second slide is usually the home page. Put navigation buttons (buttons that link to major chunks of content) here. Also, put action buttons on all of the pages, so students can go back or return to the home page.
Reminder • If your presentation links to documents that you have (that are not on the Internet), these files need to go into the same folder as your PowerPoint presentation. This folder should contain: • The PowerPoint presentation • Documents that link to the presentation (for example, a Word document) • Media files
