Project 2 Presentation Thoughts & Advice

Project 2 Presentation Thoughts

How do I give a good presentation. And pass.

  • Too much text!? Use bullet points, main features, quotes
  • Don’t just read off the screen or your paper
  • Lots of screenshots: overall point
  • Screenshots with highlights / focus / portions
  • Logical sequence, you have a structure, use it
  • Some sections will be fill, some are minimal
  • Speak clearly, confidently, know material – practiced
  • Timing, 10 minutes
  • Design this presentation! I want to know what I am watching, where am I, where I am in totality of presentation. Feedback.
  • Hierarchy of information, consistent use
  • Thinking about the environs
  • Research
  • Think about whether to show the site
  • Conclude this? Address issues at the section? Recommendations section?
  • Printed Report, flowing from your presentation
