In traditional sense a presentation is a form of communication with the audience through visual perception. This convenient and effective way to present the information became in wide use in marketing and PR areas. Computer presentations are one of the multimedia project types. They represent a particular sequence of slides and visuals, wh ere the demonstration is run by a user. Today it is the most popular way to deliver the information. Presentations requires thorough preparation. When creating presentations the following algorithm of actions is applied:
1. Theme choice and presentation goals formulation. The goal has to be real and short and to the point, preferably in one sentence.
2. Compilation and systematization of material. The information has to be relevant, interesting and reply to the questions of the topic of presentation.
3. Development of precentation concept. Text and graphic material compiled is necessary to fix on the slides in accordance with a logic of presentation and its goals.
4. Development of presentation design. One of the most important steps of the process of creating presentations. The performance and its success is goint to depend on the design. Slides design should not distract the audience, it has to conform to the narrative structure and outline the main idea. Unfortunately, sometimes during the presentation good ideas can be lost in ordinary and boring design. In our classes of “Creating presentations” course we will focus on the art of presentation design. Kids will learn to properly use different fonts, color schemes, interactive, animated and multimedia effects.
5. Slide making. All text is written in one style, font and color in accordance to the main design of presentation. Different elements of the slide are similar through the whole presentation and make finished harmonious composition.
6. Presentation testing. When preparing for presentation it is necessary to match the text for performance to slides in demonstration in order to check all elements of presentation and comfort of work with it.
