What makes a good PowerPoint Design? A training tool for teachers and students
Effective PowerPoint Design • Keep It Simple Silly • Use short phrases • Use pictures or graphics that support the bulleted points • Make sure the next slides builds on the previous one. Take logical steps • Ensure colors, background, and animations are not too distracting. Sometimes less is more.
Effective PowerPoint Design • Be consistent with each slide • Keep the same heading design • If appropriate keep the same color design (use a color to make a point or draw attention to a specific point in the presentation • Use bold, italics, andunderline to draw attention to a specific point in the presentation • Be careful not to overuse sounds and animations. They can be too distracting and take away from the presentation
Effective PowerPoint Design • Background colors and font • Use contrasting colors Yellow on a blue background works really well. (never use less than 24 point font) Dark on dark or light on light does not work well. Neither does a distracting background with the same color text. Remember, the PowerPoint is used to present information and get a point across to the viewing audience.
Effective PowerPoint Design • Use slight changes (around 10%) to recapture the audience. • It could be an animation • Text color • A graphic or sound Remember, too much can be too distracting
Effective PowerPoint Design • Last but not least • Remember the audience and who the presentation is for • Plan a presentation that will meet their interest and needs that will meet their expectations
