4 principles of PowerPoint in presentations
We have to know some methods and principles of PowerPoint to make our PowerPoint presentation attractive. In this article, we will teach you some of these methods.
Creating a PowerPoint presentation
PowerPoint is one of the best academic softwares. The question is when do we have to use it? How can we make a professional PowerPoint presentation and what should we do?
20 years ago, expert lecturers used slides and projectors to show them. Nowadays expert and inexpert lecturers use PowerPoint.
PowerPoint is in Office package for Microsoft and it was designed to simplify our presentation.
This software helps you use images, notes, films, animations and image effects so that you can have a better presentation. but be careful, you don’t have to think that PowerPoint is responsible for everything!
PowerPoint and presentation
Yes! PowerPoint should make you see easier. You don’t have to use magnifying glass.
Most people believe that writing should be big enough to read. It’s a mistake! You have to write briefly and big!
Images will stick in the audience’s mind but only when you choose them artistically!
Try to use memorable pictures related to the subject.
Sometimes, I spend one hour to make the whole PowerPoint but two hours on one picture! PowerPoint is not like Word. It’s not just about writing; pictures can help you more.
Don’t use too much effect
It’s a total principle. Don’t use too much effect because it makes the audience bored after some time and they wouldn’t want to look at the screen.
It’s not interesting that the note comes with a special effect and disappears with a strange one, especially if it repeats so many times.
Be as much simple as you can.
Don’t write tenses
You have to write the headings and then explain them more. There is no need to write the whole sentence.
For example, you don’t have to write:
Venus is the warmest planet in the solar system and the only planet that its rotation takes longer than its orbit around the sun.
In PowerPoint, you have to use headings like this:
• The warmest
• Rotation longer than the orbit
