Tips for Creating Effective Branded Slidedecks
1. The best slides are simple and easy to read
2. Use images throughout your slide deck to liven up the presentation
3. Use a font that is readable on a small screen as some of your course students may be watching on a phone or an ipad.
4. Keep it short
6. No bullet points! It’s better for people watching the presentation to be able to see what you’re talking about rather than just reading it off of an outline on their laptops or phones
