5 Presentation Software Defined
Presentation software is used to organize and present information, usually in the form of a slide show. Presentation software provides options for generating speaker notes and handouts. Equipment requirements for the presentation include a projector and computer. Presentation software is a form of multimedia because it enables you to combine multiple types of media in a single slide or slide show. 5

6 Effective Presentation Guidelines
Before creating a presentation, plan and outline the message you want to communicate Suggested guidelines include: Keeping the text simple Use no more than 50 words per slide Cover one topic per slide Add clip art sparingly and only when appropriate 6 6

7 Creating a Presentation
The Slides tab displays thumbnail images of each slide in the presentation The Outline tab displays slide text in an outline format The Notes pane is used to enter notes and details that the presenter can refer to during the presentation Placeholders are boxes with dotted borders that reside within a slide layout and are often used for content 7 7

8 Creating a Presentation (continued)
The options for creating a new presentation are: Blank presentation: Add slides one at a time, selecting from slide layouts From Themes: Use a formatting choice that includes theme colors, fonts, and effects From an existing presentation: Use a previously completed presentation as a starting point for a new presentation From templates: Apply a predesigned set of slide layouts 8 8

12 Entering Text on Slides
You can enter text on a slide by typing in the Outline pane, or by entering text directly on the slide. The slide layout refers to the way that text and other objects are arranged on the slide. These layouts include placeholders for text, titles, and/or other content, such as pictures, tables, and charts. Adding clip art to a presentation adds visual appeal and makes a presentation look professional. 12

13 Adding Clip Art to a Presentation
After an object is added to a slide, you can manipulate and edit the object. When selected, eight small squares, called sizing handles, are displayed on the border of an object. You can use the sizing handles to resize an object You can also cut, copy, paste, delete, or move the object. Adding clip art to a presentation adds visual appeal and makes a presentation look professional. 13 13

15 Adding Transitions to Slides

16 Adding Animation to Slides
You can animate objects on a slide to help make the presentation more engaging PowerPoint comes with a variety of animation effects that add movement to the object selected You can apply the animation scheme to one slide or to all slides, or to only a certain object on the slide 16 16

21 Summary You use presentation software to illustrate a sequence of ideas in a slide show format. Use presentation software for on-screen shows, self-running presentations, online meetings, presentation broadcasting, Web presentation, overhead transparencies, 35mm slides, audience handouts, and PDF documents. Some of the more popular presentation programs are Microsoft PowerPoint, Corel Presentations, and Impress. 21

22 Summary (continued) Some general presentation rules to consider are: keep each slide’s content simple; use words or phrases; don’t clutter; and use art and images appropriately. Most presentation programs come with a collection of professionally designed templates. The addition of clip art, transitions, and animations can make your presentation more entertaining. Techniques to help you give a better presentation include planning, preparing, outlining, talking at a moderate rate, following cues from the audience, and leaving time for questions. 22
