Discussion Topic 2 – Preparing a PowerPoint Presentation
Review and Write: After reading the blog by Jamie Cartright on PowerPoint design, choose a topic of your choice and prepare a short PowerPoint presentation (about five or six slides) and submit it to the discussion thread as an attachment. You may briefly describe the content in your discussion post. Focus on including more graphical elements than you might normally have in a presentation. Include new and creative elements in your slides. Include more graphic elements than you probably would include in a typical presentation. The purpose is for you to learn how to use more features in PowerPoint than you currently (probably) know how to do. There should be very little text on your slides. This exercise will give you excellent practice for preparing a PowerPoint in your job. Write a very brief description in your discussion post, and attach and upload your PowerPoint presentation.
