POWERPOINT PRESENTATION GUIDELINES
After completing the windshield survey, diagnoses, goals/objectives, interventions, and evaluation for your community, design a 15-20 slide PowerPoint presentation of your project using VoiceThread on D2L. VoiceThread is located under the ‘More’ tab in the green area just under the course name on the course homepage. There is a VoiceThread tutorial located under ‘Tutorials and Guides’ on your D2L homepage. Please view the tutorial prior to accessing VoiceThread.
NOTE: Please make sure you have proofed your PowerPoint for any errors PRIOR TO posting to VoiceThread. Once the PowerPoint is posted to VoiceThread, you are not able to make changes to the slides.
PowerPoint presentations will be accessible for peer viewing and commentary under the VoiceThread tab.
