Jane's Quick Tips
Important Points to Remember

 slide presentation graphic

1. Contrast is the key to readability.

2. Solid primary colors are better than pastels.

3. How much text? Rule of thumb - 7 lines of text & 7 words to a line.

4. Keep it simple - one main idea. Use several slides to communicate a lengthy idea.

5. How large text? 18 point to 28 point --sometimes 36 points.

6. Add value to content-slides should be created for the presentation; not adapted from lecture notes.

7. Limit the amount of time on the screen to 20-30 seconds per slide.
