Noelle Archambeau presented this lively and interactive seminar at our january meeting. We started our 2012 season off with a packed room of fun and engaged learners!
Session Overview: Whether you design training for live or virtual classes or create self-paced e-learning using a tool like Articulate, you probably use PowerPoint on a regular basis. Are your PowerPoint slides engaging your learners or putting them to sleep? Are they learning what you’re teaching or simply counting sheep? Those who attended the event learned how to design PowerPoint slides that keep your learners awake, engaged, and learning. Some of the topics Noelle demonstrated included:
- Include the right type and amount of content
- Add appropriate graphics and images
- Use fonts and colors effectively
