We’ve all watched forgettable PowerPoint presentations with poorly designed slides that detract from the learning experience.

Unfortunately, many multimedia presentations using programs such as Microsoft PowerPoint fail to utilise the many useful functions of the platform and miss the fundamental principles of multimedia and graphic design. Too much text, poor image selection, unnecessary information, graphics and distracting animations– many multimedia designs hinder learning, retention and recall.

During this webinar Instructional Designer and Facilitator, Tony Kirton, will outline key principles for creating engaging multimedia presentations using programs such as Microsoft PowerPoint. He will reveal the hidden power of PowerPoint, drawing on principles from graphic design, photography and Richard E Mayer’s Principles of Multimedia Learning.

Key topics covered

  • Apply established principles of Graphic Design to your PowerPoint slides 
  • Use a fundamental photography technique to improve your slides layout and appeal
  • Use images to create an impact AND enhance learning 
  • Incorporate some of Richard E Mayer's Principles of Multimedia Learning into your PowerPoint designs

  • Trainer and Assessor
  • Curriculum Developers
  • L&D Managers
