1. The title slide should contain an indication of the discipline in which the presentation was prepared.
2. In the lower right corner it is indicated who prepared the presentation:
Student group 2 MS
3. The background (template) of the slide and the font color should be contrasting: a light background – a dark font or vice versa. You can also use yellow letters on a blue background, black on yellow, white on red.
4. It is better not to use photos as a background (it is difficult to choose a font). In this case, you must either use more or less monochromatic, sometimes slightly blurry photographs, or place the text not on the photo itself, but on a colored substrate.
5. The font must be clearly visible from the last desk. Recommended typefaces: sans serif fonts (Arial, Tahoma, Verdana). Italics and bold should be kept to a minimum. Recommended font sizes:
l Headings: 32 -44 points
l Body text: 22 – 28 paragraphs
l Signatures in schemes, diagrams: 16-18 points
6. On one slide, it is recommended to use no more than three colors: one for the background, one for the title and one or two for the text.
7. Remember, the presentation accompanies your presentation, but does not replace it. Therefore, the text content of the presentation should precede or clarify certain provisions voiced by the speaker, but not repeat word for word. Slides do not need to be overloaded with text or pictures. There are 6 sentences on one slide, 6 words in one sentence.
8. Do not insert large tables into presentations: they are difficult to read – it is better to replace them with graphs based on these tables. If you still need to show the table, then it is better to leave as few rows and columns as possible, to provide only the most necessary data.
9. Tables and charts are best placed on a light or white background.
10. On one slide, one diagram is placed in the center of the slide, filling its entire area. The number of elements in the diagram is no more than seven. Text information in the scheme should be well readable (font in the elements of the scheme – from 16 points)
11. No more than 3 drawings are placed on one slide.
12. Photos and illustrations must be of good quality.
13. Comments on illustrations are written at the bottom or side (in the form of a bulleted list)
14. Vertical drawings do not stretch horizontally – the proportions are sharply distorted.
15. Animation in a presentation is the exception rather than the rule . With the help of animation, you can illustrate a change, a process, but not just use it “for beauty”. It is enough to adjust the effect of changing slides (influx, opening, shift).
16. In a training presentation, it is recommended to use the following types of animation :
l Headings – rectangle, color typewriter
l List – expand, appear, appear below
l Drawings – dissolution, fading.
17. In the presentation , you should not use musical accompaniment , unless, of course, it carries a semantic load (auscultation sounds, for example).
18. Video materials in the presentation should be of short duration. The best option for pasting are WMV or AVI files.
19. Audio and video materials inserted into the presentation must be saved with it in a shared folder.
20. A slide presentation should have a logical conclusion: conclusions.
21. The last slide should provide a list of used Internet resources and literary sources.
Title slide example:
