audience to engage and reengage as they mentally come in and out of focus. As the presenter constructs each slide of the presentation slide deck, he or she keeps the audience’s goal in mind. If the slide is not related to the goal, it should not be included. The presenter should only make a single point on a single slide. Each slide should have the least amount of text as possible. Inclusion of pictures or a short video clip will make the message more engaging. Some people learn auditorily, some will learn visually, and others might learn with some combination of both. Studies showed that slides with pictures help the audience to visually understand the presenter’s message and better retain the information presented. Slides with more than a single bullet point should be avoided. The reason for this is to have the audience focused on what the presenter is saying and not focused on reading a verbose slide. Each presentation needs ebbs and flows with regards to speed and voice inflection. The audience needs to mentally understand the direction the presenter is taking them. The direction needs to be logical for the audience to follow. Keeping it logical for the audience will help to keep their attention. Every presentation will have a starting point and end point or goal point.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
