BTEC 225 Presentation Software Task 1/2

Below is a description of items, resources and things you could do before a presentation or slideshow.


When creating a slideshow or presentation it is important to understand the of what you making. Without a purpose it would be hard to understand what you need. Content is another really important resource you will need to gather before you make a presentation. Content can include, images, video, graphs and information.


When thinking about the of your presentation or slideshow, it is a good idea to identify the target so you know the type of content to add in. Let’s be honest, adults do not want to see or hear anything about Dora the Explorer.


Once you have gathered all your resources, it is important to do some prior .  This means you will need to take a look at examples of good presentations/slideshows and also look at ones that were not so good so that you avoid making the same mistakes!

You should also consider constraints. When you copy and paste content from the internet, you may be breaking the law! However, using the correct methods, you are safe. If you find some content that you like, you have a choice to make; how did you find this content? Do you know for sure if it is ok to reuse? Do you have permission? If the answer is yes, then you are good to go! If not, seek advice from someone who knows!
