PowerPoint from Screencasting Webinar

Dec 17, 2009 • general, screencasting, video

If you're interested in the PowerPoint for my screencasting webinar, here it is below.

I always smile a little when people ask for the PowerPoint, because it just consists of pictures. I resist detailed bullets points on each slide because it locks you into a certain order that may be at odds with your presentation's flow. Also, when you give people text to read while you're speaking, you lose some of their attention.

I promise to record a podcast this week covering some of the same screencasting content, so stay tuned for this.

By the way, the more presentations I give, the more I find that Guy Kawasaki's 10/20/30 rule of PowerPoint really is true.

Also, someone asked for examples of screencasts I've done. Most of the screencasts I do are for work and are behind the firewall, unfortunately. But here are several of my screencasts (the first three in the list below) as well as screencasts from other sites.

I'm also finishing a bunch of screencasts for a public-facing project at work this week, so I'll post those when they're ready.
