Audio Transcript for the PowerPoint Presentation: “What About PowerPoint?”
The following presentation is about what to do and what not to do while using PowerPoint. Each slide is narrated. You can click the sound icon to hear the narration.
First, a story. On February 1st, 2003, the Space Shuttle Columbia exploded over the skies of Texas. All seven crewmembers were killed.
Interestingly, the scientists at NASA knew the space shuttle might have trouble upon reentry because upon take off, a small piece of foam debris was seen striking the wing. However, scientists weren’t
actually sure how much the debris damaged the wing. Studies were conducted, and the scientists presented their findings to the NASA administration in the form of PowerPoint slides. Based on this presentation, the administration of NASA decided not to tell the astronauts and to let the shuttle land as scheduled, resulting in the tragedy of February 1.
In his review of the reasons for the disaster, Dr. Edward Tufte, an American computer scientist, political scientist, and statistician, claimed that one of the reasons why the scientists and administration at NASA allowed the tragedy to occur is the bad PowerPoint slide seen here. Tufte claimed that the crucial information the administrators needed was found at the bottom of this slide and was hidden with the
overuse of bullet points, subheading bullet points, sub- subheading bullet points, and sub- sub-subheading bullet points. Tufte’s review enabled people to say correctly that bad PowerPoint design is not
only boring, but can also be deadly.
Of course, the results of your PowerPoint presentations won’t be nearly so dramatic as the NASA example I just showed you. However, I do want to point out a couple of examples of things you should avoid when creating your own PowerPoint slides. This slide you see here represents the most common problem.
Simply, the biggest mistake that most students make is creating slides that contain too many bullet points and too much text. A good PowerPoint slide should have no more than three bullet points—if any—and those bullet points should not contain complete sentences, one or two words should do nicely.
If you look at this slide you will quickly see what the problem is. Really, there is nothing more distracting
than seeing a PowerPoint slide with a spelling error on it. if you are delivering a presentation and the audience notices a spelling error, that is the only thing they’re going to see and the only thing they’re
going to be paying attention to throughout your entire speech. Make sure that all your words are spelled correctly, including proper names.
Students often ask me how many slides they should have in their presentation. And my answer is always the same: the fewer the better. But I suppose a good rule of thumb is no more than one slide per minute of speaking. But again, fewer is better.
Really, what you should be striving for in each of your slides is simplicity. The slide seen here actually won an award for worst PowerPoint presentation ever created. It contains far too much information, and it is almost impossible to read.
This slide was a runner up. Again, too much information crammed into too small of a space.
So what should your slides look like? Of course, every presentation and its needs and its audience are
different. But there are a few rules you should go by. First, keep things as simple and clean as you can.
This slide, for example, is easy-to-read, simple, and has an eye-catching graphic that isn’t too distracting.
This slide has a color scheme that’s easy on the eyes, with words that are clearly visible.
This slide brilliantly combines text and photography. Notice how the word “focus” is placed directly under the water droplet that is the most clearly focused part of the picture.
Of course, the last three slides that I showed you were designed by professionals, and you may say to yourself that you do not have the ability or the time to create slides like those. However, the PowerPoint
program does provide a number of free templates and themes that you can use to create a presentation that’s pleasing to the eye. There are also a limitless number of templates and themes that you can
download from the Internet. And there are also a number of websites where you can download royalty free images, sites like Pexels.com. For example, this slide I created myself using an image I found on the web that is licensed as free to use without attribution.
Thanks for watching and listening to this PowerPoint presentation. I hope you found the advice to be useful. And remember, simplicity is key.
