Please view and comment on this link of the day - yes, for your education, but also for the points, of course! Watch the video below:
TITLE - Create Slides People Will Remember
Then, post a comment in reply to this discussion thread. Again, what to post? Here are some ideas: + What did you take away from the video? + How does the video relate in some way to your past experience (work, as a consumer, family, school, etc.)? + How might you use these ideas in your own career?

Create Slides People Will Remember I completely agree with this article! It was nice to watch this as a reminder of how to properly prepare a presentation. One of the best speeches/presentations I have ever given did not involve PowerPoint slides at all. I was able to engage the audience with well talked about examples and statistics that I wrote on the board. I believe this format of presenting should be pushed more in high school to prepare students for presenting properly.
I really enjoyed this presentation because helps us as students as well. Being able to put together a great presentation is important. We all know that we should write the speech and then create the PowerPoint but yet we don't. We tend to create the presentation first and then make the speech. Why do we do that. Some people put all the information on the PowerPoint why do they do that? We all need a little practice and with some fine tuning we all should become great business presenters.

I was interested in what this article was about but she didn't give any visuals to help! Also her hand gestures and tone were difficult to get through…
I agree with most of what she was saying. It will be a challenging thing to go from presentations for school, which are made to be turned in so there has to be information on the slide that you will also say out loud, to presentations for work that will be primarily for visual aide instead of reading material.

This was a good presentation on presentations. Everyone in college could use this information to make better presentations. Making sure your audience is engaged and listening is important, as well as making sure they are at least a bit entertained.

I liked how this video gave a few key pointers on when to use power point slides and when to ditch the slide and use just a graphic or two. I have seen some slides that are so filled with information that the main idea gets lost. It is important to remember that the slides should be completed after the speech is prepared.
Honestly when am making slides, I make them for my benefit and not really for the viewer. That's just because most of the time, I want slides that make me more comfortable while presenting. This link gave me a whole new outlook that I will try to utilize in my upcoming presentations.
I think that this video is educational for a poor presenter. I think the slides have little to nothing to do with how well the material is received by the audience. I think that the presenter and only the presenter have the ability to catch their audience’s attention regardless of what is on the slides. Whether from enthusiasm, knowledge, delivery, etc. a presentation will only be received if the presenter has a defining characteristic that appeals to their audience.

Definitely will share this with fellow students and colleagues. Thank you Professor! I definitely felt that this video was very informative. I actually have done or seen presentations that are very monotonous and linear. I would definitely would want to stand out in my next power point presentation. Simplifying things and working the speech around the slides makes a lot of sense. I feel that when people do presentations with slides they tend to be complacent and not prepare like they should to have an empowering and unique presentation that you will remember!
This video should be seen by every college student. It shows you how you should present your speech. Use your power points as bullets to help show the main points you are trying to get across to the audience. It is the speakers job to grasp the audiences attention and maintain through out the your presentation. I have never seen a power point grab the audiences attention. Once again it is the speakers job to deliver the point they are trying to get across.

I personally hate public speaking. I am very bad at it, and I get really nervous about it. It was interesting in the video to hear ideas about making better presentations. The suggestions in the video can help you develop new and creative ideas for your presentations.

Very useful video. I have seen some slides where they are so packed with information it is hard to read and keep up with the speaker. It looks too crowded. Also having too many slides can be overwhelming as well. Slides with limited words are a great way to go. It allows you to focus more on the speaker than the slides. I took some great tips away from this video.
This video is extremely useful for me. I’m going to follow those guidelines when I prepare for my next presentation. Everybody gets nervousness to some extent when we have to stand in front of everybody to talk. I tend to find that when I’m less nervous when I’m better prepared, in other words, I have to know what I’m going to talk about very well to reduce the amount of nervousness. And these guidelines are just what I needed to get myself ready to present.

In the case of powerpoints/slides, I believe that less is more. While the video's presentation fails to be amazing, its content is and for this reason I rated/ranked it very highly. It is the kind of information that more people need to see and understand. It is commonplace in work environments, to see slides and powerpoints abused. People tend to think that more slides translate into a stronger speech. However, this is wrong. I feel putting less on slides is important because it forces you to know the subject material better. Also, it allows the speaker to engage his audience more effectively through eye contact and etc. To conclude, slides should be used to compliment speeches not replace them.
