BCIS 1305 PowerPoint Presentation
Submit the following presentation by uploading through the Canvas Class Assignment page on or before
Monday, 12/05 at class start time
. Your files should be uploaded
you walk into the classroom at start time. Classroom computers will not be on, on the day of presentations, so you will need to use the Computer Science lab BEFORE class for uploading or changes.
Review the SIMnet Lessons on PowerPoint before starting your presentation.
You should review the SIMNET training and SIMNET Post-Exam for PowerPoint Comprehensive SIMpath to be able to include the items below in your presentation.
You will be submitting one original PowerPoint presentation that will count as 12% of your overall average. You will still have a comprehensive Final on our scheduled Final day. (See Class Schedule for date and time of Final)
Select a topic from the SignUp Genius link provided on the Canvas class assignment page. (There is a limit of one student per topic first come first served, if the topic is full you will have to choose something else.) Your topic
must be from the list of topics and preferably something you are interested in—I hope this will be an enjoyable assignment! This is an
individual assignment (Not group work).
My topic selected was: _______________________________________
Research and prepare a presentation on your selected topic. You must use reputable sources. Probably your biggest challenge will be limiting the information. I would recommend exploring an area of interest to make this informative and fun for you. If you are familiar with PowerPoint, try to explore some of the special features that would enhance your presentation to take it beyond the required elements listed below.
As you prepare to create a new presentation, you should follow several basic steps: Plan, Create, Edit, Enhance, and Rehearse.
Plan The first step in planning a presentation is to understand its purpose. You also need to find out the length of time you have to speak, who the audience is, what type of room you will be in, and what kind of audiovisual equipment is available. These factors help to determine the type of presentation you will create.
Create To begin creating your presentation, develop the content by typing your thoughts or notes into an outline. Each main idea in your presentation should have a supporting slide with a title and bulleted points.
Edit While typing, you will probably make typing and spelling errors that need to be corrected. This is one type of editing. Another type is to revise the content of what you have entered to make it clearer, or to add or delete information. To do this, you might insert a slide, add or delete bulleted items, or move text to another location.
Enhance You want to develop a presentation that grabs and holds the audience’s attention. Choose a design that gives your presentation some dazzle. Whenever possible, add graphics to replace or enhance text. Add effects that control how a slide appears and disappears and that reveal text in a bulleted list
one bullet at a time.
Rehearse Finally, you should rehearse the delivery of your presentation. For a professional presentation, your delivery should be as polished as your materials. Use the same equipment that you will use when you give the presentation. Practice advancing from slide to slide and then back if case someone asks a question. If you have a mouse available, practice pointing or drawing on the slide to call attention to key points.
You will be presenting your presentation through in-class presentation on each individual slide. Presentations should be
5-6 minutes long and should include information
not listed on the slides. In other words,
don’t read the slides to us. Be sure to test your presentation before you upload it. All presentations should be uploaded to the Assignment Page on
Canvas for grading
start of class on the due date.
Your presentation grade will be based on the following graded requirements. Be sure to verify that your presentation contains each of the following:
1. Upload the PDF files for your handouts with your presentation (.pptx) file including:
a. The actual presentation (.pptx files
PPT Show files (.ppsx) or .mp4 video files
cannot be graded and will receive a
0.) File name should be structured as
6 slides to a page Horizontal Handout, File name should be structured as
PDF of the PPT
outline handout of your presentation. File name should be structured as
PDF of ONE (1) printed notes page for one slide containing speaker notes. (I do not want all of your speaker notes, just one representative page). File name should be structured as
When you print, you should have an option in the Printer drop down box to choose Save as PDF. Use this to create PDF versions of your handouts and upload them with your presentation to the assignment. The free Adobe Acrobat reader or a professional version of Adobe usually must be installed on your machine before the Print option will be available.
2. Presenting your presentation in class on your computer topic is worth 11 points of the grade. Getting up to present and on topic will be enough for the full 11 points.
3. The subject matter should be from the topic list distributed in class.
4. Put your name on the title slide as the presenter in
5. The presentation should have
15 slides including the initial Title Slide and the closing Sources Slide.
(A Thank you slide, or Any Questions slide are not appropriate for this presentation and will not count towards your required 15 slides. The
Section Header layout / slide will also
not count towards your fifteen slides. You should have an initial (1st) Title Slide, 13 slides with content relating to the topic, and the 15th slide should be your Sources slide.) All 13 content slides must have written content about the topic. A picture, video, or sound is not enough to qualify as “enough” content on a slide.
6. Follow the widely accepted
6 x 6 Guideline about putting no more than 6 lines (bullets) on a slide and no more than 6 words per line (bullet). The one exception is the 2 Content Slide which can have 6 pullets on each side. Bullets should NOT be full sentences unless it is a quote in quotation marks. Besides plagiarism issues, copying paragraphs on a slide is not effective—too much to read and in many cases, the text cannot be seen clearly by all audience members. Any additional wording should be in the words that you say—not in the slide itself.
There will be a deduction for excessive text on a slide. The slides should be an
of your speech, not the speech itself.
7. Create your presentation from scratch (do not use a sample template that contains content or content placeholders with content suggestions,
design templates are fine). Your presentation should follow good “Slide Show Design Principles” discussed in the linked advice document. Use a PowerPoint design theme(s) or create your own. You
must use a design theme; this is different than a Sample Template. You may borrow a design from a sample template, but all content in the sample must be replaced with content about your topic.
For this presentation you may only use One (1) design theme for the whole presentation.
8. Use a variety of slide
layouts, a minimum of
layouts must be used in the presentation. The title slide layout for the first slide
does count as one of your four layout types.
9. Apply font and color changes to enhance your presentation. (Ex. Variations of theme)
10. Insert the
slide number and the
presentation title in the
footer on all
slides (Slide Footer)
the title slide.
11. Insert a
“Notes and Handouts” Header and Footer. The Header should have your
Full Name, the Footer should have the
name of your presentation, and include
the date and time updated automatically.
12. At least 3 clip art images (illustrations/icons) somewhere in the presentation (not necessarily on the same slide). This is a minimum you may use more.
13. Use at least 3 picture images (photographs) somewhere in the presentation. Add artistic effects and/or picture styles. Crop if needed. Note that you may need to compress your image if it is high resolution. (Note: You may use more! This is a minimum.)
14. Enhance all clip art or pictures with color, borders, alternative shapes, effects such as shadows and reflections or some type of
15. Add a
transition effect to
slides. (Adding the random effect added to every slide will not suffice to meet this requirement.)
16. Add animation effects to
bulleted lists, so that each line/bullet comes in separately, set to “On Click”.
17. Use the pen or highlighter and
save the “ink annotation” to the presentation. Make this obvious so I can find it to grade it.
18. Create speaker notes (Notes Page) for
at least one slide. You may add notes to every slide, but it is only required for one slide. A speaker’s note usually contains information or reminders for the presenter that are not contained within the slide’s bullets. This should be like what you would put on an index card for a speech in speech class.
19. End the slide show with a slide showing the sources of your information.
You must have at minimum 3 credible sources.
Wikipedia is not a source
. If use a website, I want the name of the website and its URL. You do not have to use MLA or APA, but if you prefer you may create your sources in Word and copy them in. Just a suggestion, this is a good use for a table.
In the slide reference, you must show the name of the website, the URL, and the date accessed.
of the following somewhere in the presentation:
20. A bulleted or numbered list (you may have many, but MUST have at least one)
multi-level bulleted list (cannot be the same as #21 above) A multi-level list will have at least one sub-bullet
22. Shape with text box inside
23. Word Art
24. Table with effects (This must be a table inserted with the table tool on the Content Place holder.) A picture of a table does
25. Smart Art Graphic
26. Add an
audio play to your presentation
(No more than 30 seconds). Note: Use Insert Audio and find an online sound, rip part of a song, or record your own to be used in your presentation. You are welcome to use a music file but be sure to embed it in the presentation to have access to the file when it is played on another computer. For more information, go to YouTube and search for audio in PowerPoint 2019. Your presentation can have background music or just a clip in an appropriate place. (
This is not the same as the built-in sound effects for bullets and animations).
DO NOT play an audio file across slides.
27. Embed 10 seconds of a downloaded video. Use Snag It to download video related to your topic. A link to a free 15-day trial is included in the Web Links/ Bookmarks module of our class. You are to embed the video and use the Playback tools to trim it to 10 seconds of viewing. You pick the 10 seconds to show.
Links to YouTube or embedded YouTube that stream from YouTube (instead of the local powerpoint) will not count for credit.
The purpose of this is demonstrate you know how to use the trim tool, which is only available only on downloaded and embedded videos. Embedding a video makes it part of your presentation. Remember, if you were using a video taken from a website on a publicly distributed presentation, you would need permission from the “owner” of the presentation. The video should relate somehow to your topic. You may also make your own video to insert if it is related to your topic.
28. Excel Chart about something in your topic (must be a chart (PPT chart tool)
NOT a copy or picture of a chart off the web.)
29. Spell-check your entire presentation
30. Compress all pictures in the presentation.
31. ********** Use
Optimize Compatibility first and then Compress Media to the Standard (480p) level, to make your file size smaller to allow quicker uploads to Canvas and more importantly for me to download to grade!
I can tell almost instantly if this was done or not based on how long it takes me to download the file for grading. These options will only be available once an audio or video file has been inserted into the PowerPoint file.
Unfortunately, Mac computers do not have the option for Media Compression. Mac users will need to save their presentation to their OneDrive and then open it in the VDI, to compress the presentation.
Depending on the size of your video file and the speed of your internet connection
, it may take 3-5 minutes or longer to upload to Canvas.
Do not keep clicking the upload button as it restarts the process every time you do.
