Ooooh nice! I'm wondering how this plugin will work with MS Project 2013...perhaps the Gantt chart functionality has been enhanced similarly. Looking forward to checking it out!

LOL Billy! In that case it becomes a story trigger -- a word or image that triggers a known story in the mind of the listener.

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.

This is a PowerPoint presentation that would have sent my former employers into shock. They had no imagination whatsoever. However, Eugene Cheng clearly has wonderful artistic skills and knows how to present them. In addition, he clearly has a nice budget to work with. These kind of beautiful graphics don't come at low price. I thoroughly enjoyed glancing through this presentation and plan to use it as inspiration for future projects.

 

Warmly,

Susan Daniels

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