The key takeaway items from this lesson are…
- Keep your lessons short. 10 – 18 minutes works great.
- Aim your lesson at the individual watching the presentation.
- Don’t overdo the animations.
- Avoid slide transitions.
I like using PowerPoint for several reasons. I’ve used it for years, so I am familiar with it. The latest versions allow you to record narrations right along with your clicks so that the presentation follows you.
Once you have PowerPoint set up for your presentation, you are ready to begin to record your narration.
