Describe a PowerPoint presentation that you have given or experienced as an audience member that is guilty of some features of “Death by PowerPoint.” If you’ve never seen one, describe any type of group presentation you have experienced. Then, answer the following questions:
· What about the presentation suggests the features of “Death by PowerPoint”?
· What went wrong? What worked well and how could the presentation have been improved?
In your responses to others, offer more tips on how the presentation could have been improved.
Your answers need to include your interpretation of the material that you have watched and read along with your personal experiences. It is okay to use outside sources—if you do, list the author’s name and the article’s title at the bottom of your post. Please use complete paragraphs in your posts.
