This guide provides instruction on how to create PowerPoint presentations. Topics include design principles, concise writing, use of images, and APA style.

Narrated PPT

Narrated PowerPoints are useful when you cannot deliver your presentation in person to a live audience (classmates and instructor). This format requires extra planning because you will need a script that is carefully timed and rehearsed to sound as natural as possible. Plan on several tries (rehearsals) to get it right. The resources on this page deal with the technical aspects of setting up the narration in your PowerPoint.
