Marita, why not try printscrins, preferably with the address bar visible (source of your cited resource)? There is a copyright webinar coming up, but printscrins generally fall into fair use as citations, esp. if you refer to them in your presentation (assuming you'd probably not use them otherwise). Hope this helps.Thanks JZ!Best to allJ.------ Oryginalna wiadomość------Od: Marita MollData: Sob., 20 cze 2020 17:16Do: at-large at atlarge-lists.icann.org;DW: Temat:Re: [At-Large] Presentation Tips
Great tips Jonathan --
but we can't just take images from the web and stick them on
powerpoints destined for a world wide audience and which will
continue to exist in archives. Got a solution for that?

request of “management,” I’m working on a class on
PowerPoint and how to use it for Presentations, Videos and
Course development but it will be quite a while before it
is finished. In the meantime, Maureen asked if I would
simply share some presentation tips so, here are some, in
rough format. I hope they are helpful. JZ
People cannot listen and read
at the same time.
Period. Both activities engage the language center of
the brain. They will do only one and, more often than
not, that's read. If they are reading the same slides
you are, then why are you there?
Slides should supplement the
talk, not the other way around.
The big joke is that during EVERY Zoom meeting, people
ask if the slides will be available. It's funny first
because the answer is ALWAYS yes but, more importantly,
your slides should not be able to stand on their own.
People CAN absorb pictures
and listen at the same time
Looking and listening engage different, complimentary,
parts of the brain. The best analogy for a good
presentation is a documentary film. They generally have
narration and visuals. Imagine if Ken Burn's documentary
about the American Civil War was a series of PowerPoints
with titles and bullets!
Only pictures and punchlines
6 words or LESS
Bring People Back
Ideally, people spend more time looking at you than your
slides. This is harder in the virtual world, for sure,
especially if there's no video, but consider a blank
slide or a picture of yourself as you explain something.
Tell people to close their eyes, even!
Turn sentences into pictures
In other words, edit down sentences to the bare minimum
to be understood, make numbers Arabic instead of text
and make them bigger and different colors than the text.
A sentence like “Research shows that ninety-five percent
of applications for community priority evaluation failed
to gain approval,” could be represented on a slide as
Notes in Notes Section
If you wish to include explanations in your slide deck,
do it in the notes section. Then they are there for you
to use and EVEN available to share by making a PDF of
the Notes View, instead of the slide view! Another
benefit of putting what you plan to say iin the Notes is
that you can often share them with the interpreters in
It’s the only way you’ll ever know how long your
presentation is becoming or whether you’re going to
stumble over a particular phrase or simply be at a
loss for words. You can use the “Rehearse Timing,”
feature under the Slide Show menu.
