The Bad Side of a Slide Presentation

Written by Rafael Van Dyke

A couple of years ago, I went to a conference for programmers in Arizona, where I hadrepparttar opportunity to attend several one-hour classes. Virtually all ofrepparttar 107868 instructors used slide presentations to get throughrepparttar 107869 material. Though there was nothing wrong withrepparttar 107870 material that was covered,repparttar 107871 slide presentations they used really did nothing to help them in their session. It would have been just as good for them to print out their speech and give itrepparttar 107872 audience a copy to read along with.

There were a select few with slide presentations that actually aided in their session. In fact, they were so good that after a while I paid more attention torepparttar 107873 presenter thanrepparttar 107874 slide presentation (for me, that an accomplishment!); but they were rare. I’m sure it was because they were programmers; but allrepparttar 107875 same, allow me to outline why they were so bad:

A Slide Presentation Is Notrepparttar 107876 Presentation The first mistake most presenters made was to think that a detailed slide presentation would compensate for poor communication skills, when nothing could be further fromrepparttar 107877 truth. Some of them almost had their entire lecture inrepparttar 107878 presentation. A slide presentation is to be used as an outline to keep everyone on track, not as your teleprompter. No matter how much you know about a topic, reading most of your presentation makes you look unprepared and certainly not an expert in your field.

A Slide Presentation Is Not a Book This goes along withrepparttar 107879 prior point of having too much material in a slide presentation. You can’t simply take copy and paste from your book and try to make it into a slide show. The audience doesn’t come to a session to read a book onrepparttar 107880 screen … you have to summarize it for them. This means that you won’t be able to give them all of your knowledge in one hour, and you’ll need to cut out some things. If they want more, then maybe they’ll read your book.

Article: Audixp with side-window review . By: zoneview My first computer case I used to have wasrepparttar blank ATX case with 3 exposed bays and 3 hidden bays. In fact, I was really pleased with what I had at that time. Actually, I was really proud of what I had. But, when i went to computer fair located in Pomona, Ca , my mind completely changed . A beautiful modified case with see-through window was caught into my attention. It was a hand-made case. The cost for that amazing case was $300. I was surprised withrepparttar 107867 case and also withrepparttar 107868 high-rocket price. The only thing in my head was "Why would i spend $300 forrepparttar 107869 stupid case? ", "Is that worth it ?" . Few booths away fromrepparttar 107870 case wasrepparttar 107871 windows kit which you can use to modify computer case's side window. It actually fitted into my needs and it was cheap compared torepparttar 107872 modified case I had seen before. I bought it for and tried to modify it myself. You don't know how hard it was for me to cutrepparttar 107873 window open. I got scratches all over my hand. The window was ruined. I actually had to thrownrepparttar 107874 entire kits away because it didn't work out really well for me. I don't blame my awkward skill but it is truly hard for ordinary people to modify it onrepparttar 107875 hard material. I finally decided to go withrepparttar 107876 case. It is expensive inrepparttar 107877 first place, but i love it . It has neon light, see through window and it comes with 250W power supply. The entire system glows inrepparttar 107878 dark withrepparttar 107879 beautiful green light can catch people attention, especially my friends. They are all impressed. Because of its high-end look andrepparttar 107880 high price, see-through side window is getting more and more popular. Butrepparttar 107881 price forrepparttar 107882 window is still high. The price range for it is from $30 to $60. Recently, Ahanix releases one ofrepparttar 107883 special computer case withrepparttar 107884 see-through window. It comes with affordable price and best in performance. It is an incredible good-looking case. They named it Audixp. I don't know how they come up withrepparttar 107885 name but I like how it sounds. Because of many good features Audixp has, I decided to write a review for it. I hope you'll likerepparttar 107886 Audixp after reading this article. Audixp comes in two colors : Dark Silver and Silver as shown atrepparttar 107887 bottom from left to right. Both have see-through windows. As I know Audixp first generation doesn't come with side-window. You have to be careful when purchasingrepparttar 107888 case somewhere else. They might haverepparttar 107889 first generation without window but it costsrepparttar 107890 same. I also seerepparttar 107891 side-window sold at many places. Butrepparttar 107892 price is really high. The regular price inrepparttar 107893 market about $25-35 for a single side-window. It might not even fit with your computer case. One thing I would like people to aware of isrepparttar 107894 window kit and side-window are notrepparttar 107895 same. The kit is to transformrepparttar 107896 side panel torepparttar 107897 side-window.
