Discussion: What makes AV materials good?

What makes them good

  1. Short, meaningful information: it doesn’t have paragraphs of text that compete with the spoken presentation
  2. Something that the audience can relate to–something appealing
  3. Engages the audience
    Strong relationship between the presentation materials and the supporting AV: keeps the focus on the central message
    Reliability: help convey believability, doesn’t detract from content of presentation
    Strong relationship between form and function: the materials suit the topic and help to make it more accessible

What our guidelines are

    Using the tool as it was intended
    Manipulating tool to do what YOU want it to do, not what it tells you to do
    Facts: diagrams, charts, data in appropriate (easily understood) formats
    Simplicity: ease of understanding–form and content match
    Sound, if appropriate
    Video, if appropriate
    Creativity–creates connection to the presentation
