Using visual aids such as PowerPoint is now standard and is expected in most presentation. They are used to clarify difficult information, emphasise main points as well as sign-posting and helping to make your presentation look and feel impressive and professional. In this unit we will look at the design of PowerPoint and other visual aids and how to use these aids effectively when presenting your academic work.
Why is using visual aids such as PowerPoint so important? What other types of visual aids could you use in a presentation? What problems have you experienced in the past when using visual aids in your presentation?
1. Use: PowerPoint is a visual aid to your presentation, not the presentation itself. It can only help illustrate your points, not give your presentation for you. What you say is the main event.
2. Spelling: Write your text or outline first, spell check it, and double-check the grammar. 3. First and last slides: Your first slide should be a title slide and the last a closing slide. Either may stay visible to your audience for considerably longer than any other slide. Make both informative and interesting. A title slide should include your name and presentation title. A closing slide should include your contact information and references for further information.
4. Compatibility: Office 2007/ 2008/ 2010 creates a PowerPoint file in the .pptx format. This file cannot be used on earlier versions of Office so either make sure you can use the file on the provided computer or save it as . ppt when you create it.
5. Size matter: Text on a slide is much larger than printed text because it must be readable from the back of the room during the presentation. Default point sizes for text, therefore, range from about 36 points for headings to no smaller than 20 for lists . Print out a slide containing text. Then place the page on the floor. Can you read the slide from a standing position? If yes, then your audience can likely read it from their seats. If no, the font size needs to be increased.
6. Fonts: Don’t use non -standard fonts. PowerPoint is machine-dependent, which means that if you choose to use the font “ Brush Script MT ” then any computer that plays that slide show will also have to have font installed. If it doesn’t, then it will substitute another and your layout will likely change. Fonts standard to most computers, Macs and PCs, include Arial , Courier , Georgia and Times New Roman .
7. Picture: An image conveys far more information than text filling the same space. Enlarge important images to fill the entire slide rather than sacrificing image size to accommodate text that’s not critical to the point or doesn’t need to be shown.
8. Key Words: Use only key words or bullet points, not lines from your script. Make sure your slide is not overflowing with information and difficult to read. Simple, simple, simple... 9. Sound: If you add sound to your presentation, you will need to amplify it for a large audience. At the very least, the computer or laptop running your presentation should have external speakers that can be aimed toward the audience.
10. Colours: Avoid using bright colours (especially orange and yellow) in the presentation as they do not show up well when projected. Furthermore, every projector shows the colours differently so it is a good idea to arrive early and check how your PowerPoint looks. 11. Face the audience: Don’t use the slides as a script. Face the audience as much as possible and turn to the slide only when pointing out information. Make sure you do not block the audience’s view.
