I found this slidedeck today during my usual Internet skulking. I have never heard of these “wiki” things and I don’t know the author, but perhaps we can profit still from her hard work.
This representative slide explains clearly what several thousand of my own words, thus far, have not:
God created slides and handouts for different purposes.
The designer pushes text and images into a single slide at the expense of both. Recognizing that slideware is great for images and paper is great for text, how would this look had she:
- enlarged the screenshots to fill the entire frame?
- laid out the technical instructions on a paper handout?
Great, that’s how.
