The course consists of a collection of texts that aim at inspiring you to see your presentation materials (slides, handouts, posters, etc.) in a new perspective. Together with general presentation design principles, you will learn practical tips to reinvent your slides and give power to your presentations/lectures. The focus is on the best use of visual aids used in presentations and specifically on the use of the Microsoft Office PowerPoint slides. However, the course is not a technical computer guide to physically using PowerPoint, but a guide to the creation and deployment of the right kind of slide material.

„Simple (but not simpler), clear and logically built - that is what counts for presentations. I agree :)“
