Alex Grech's curator insight, October 9, 2013 4:18 PM

It's the first time I've taught undergraduates.  I've found myself stripping slides to the core message and trying to find visuals that can communicate that message quickly, simply and yet - resonate.  There is nothing as tough as trying to unclutter the mind and focus on what really needs to be said - as opposed to 'making a point' or simply 'showing off'.  This presentation is about the art of visuals, clear design, and keeping it 'stupidly simple'.

Have started showing students during Google presentation tutorials how to outline their presentations like they always do with those bulleted lines on the slides.  Then take those sentences, change them into titles, and put one title on each slide. Select one image per slide. If needed, add URL links. Add the works cited for the image in tiny print at the bottom of the slide. Move those outlined bulleted points to the note section or toss into a document to print out for a group presenetation.

 

No more slides crowded with text and 4 images! No more students sleeping in the classroom while their classmates read from the Smartboard.

While beautiful Powerpoint may seem like an oxymoron  this slideshow proves it is possible.

This is a great find - if it works.    Could be very useful for trainings curriculum and documentation.

I wasn't too thrilled with the voice-over, but I can forsee utilizing this tool eventually.

Baiba, my mistake and my apologies. I mixed up one post of yours with another and got myself confused. I have deleted my comments and I apologize for any inconvenience I may have caused.

Keep up the great curation work.
