Video: How to Use Multimedia in Your PowerPoint Presentations

Using Multimedia In Your PowerPoint Presentation

Get Your Presentation Right For Your Audience

Knowing how to use multimedia in your PowerPoint presentations is key when you are getting ready for your next presentation at work. That’s because you want to engage your audience to achieve the best possible effect with your presentation.

Therefore, here are some pointers for you to consider when you use PowerPoint.

  • Visuals build understanding in your audience, so take advantage.
  • Avoid bullet points, because they don’t work.
  • Use a theme for your slides because it helps build recollection.
  • Aim to use large images as they are always attractive.
  • Have powerful colours in your colour palette.
  • Minimise the text on your slides, so your audience understands you.
  • Be wary of PowerPoint transitions as they can distract.
  • Keep your slides simple.
  • Use charts and graphs to help explain your information.
  • Be consistent with your choice of fonts and typefaces, since too much is distracting.
  • Get organised with your PowerPoint material.
  • Video and audio files resonate with your audience, so use them well.

It’s essential that your multimedia works to plan when you give a PowerPoint presentation. So to get that to happen you’ll want to prepare fully and practise each element. Therefore, just aim to keep things simple and uncluttered. So that your audience doesn’t become confused with all your material. Above all, be consistent and use your multimedia with purpose.
