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?

          At the
              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!
                ON SLIDES
            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
                  and punchlines
                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.
