How I Made Unique College PowerPoint Presentations With Elegant Slide Designs
PowerPoint Presentations have become integral part of Academics in almost all fields of Study especially in Medical and Engineering technology. And Question in front of you is How can you become Unique at Presentation in class?
Common scenario when you present your Presentation in front of class is that, most of your class mates will have similar slide designs. Most of which are part of program which came along with installation in short, nothing new.
I agree that content is king even in Presentation and feedback is also dependent on presenting skills. Still, why not impress audience with attractive PowerPoint Slide designs.
In colleges, Presentation topic is most of the time from academic course so, content was never a problem for me and it should not be for most of you. So, I worked on Presentation skills and choosing impressive PowerPoint Slide Designs of course, relevant to the topic. It is a good idea to have Slide designs too matching exactly with the Presentation topic. For example: If the topic is “Robotics”, choose Engineering Side Designs matching exactly with Robots instead of Multipurpose PowerPoint Templates used by most.
How To Find Topic Relevant PowerPoint Slide Designs
1. Use Google to Search PowerPoint Templates
If you have read our 10 Tricks to use Google Search like Ninja, this isn’t new for you. We just have to use proper keyword to get relevant result. .POT is a file extension for PowerPoint Templates and sometimes even available for download in PPT.
So, enter keyword as “Filetype:pot Medical” to find Medical PowerPoint Slide Designs Download.
Search results are often cluttered and along with Templates, there are some Presentations too. If you are Lucky, you will get a ready-made Presentation along with nice slide design else you will have to filter out manually by checking random ones.
2. Use Free PowerPoint Template Download Sites
There are many sites providing free download of PowerPoint Slide designs and templates. Free PowerPoint Templates is the one with variety of designs offered for free download.
It has A-Z category which means almost all types are considered and not just broad ones but you can find topic specific PowerPoint Slide designs too. For example: You can get a slide design related to “Back Ache” instead of compromising for general “Medical” term.
Make PPT More Interactive and Share Online
Try to involve Audience by using Live Presentation Feedback Tools which also can make use of Social media like Twitter which integrates Live Voting.
Also, at the end, offer them a link to view your presentation online. You can either do it by converting PowerPoint Presentation to YouTube Video or upload PPT directly.
Uploading Presentations to share online is better and thanks to sites like SlideOnline which provides a platform to share your academic presentations online publicly as well as privately if you want to limit it to your class mates only.
Not just sharing but Slideonline also lets you browse already uploaded presentations and download them. Though a new site, but another way of looking into it would be clutter-free making it perfect portal for your class group.
Apart from Slide Designs, you should make proper use of Animations and Sound if allowed. I am sure no one else will do that and hence you will get those extra points for extra efforts.
