What's your impression of this slide? Boring! Ugly! Text heavy!

We've all sat through presentations where the slides were less than engaging: too much text, uninspiring design, and overall, just plain boring. Presentation slides are crucial tools for communicating ideas effectively. However, text-heavy, poorly designed, or visually unappealing slides can quickly lose your audience's interest.

Your Task:

  1. Identify what aspects make our slide ineffective—are the issues due to excessive text, poor layout, or uninspiring visuals?

  2. Watch the short video on presentation tips. Using what you learn from the video, think about how you could redesign our slide to make it more engaging and comprehensible.

  3. In the text box, explain how you would change the design and text to make a better slide. Or even better, show us, create a new slide from ours (copy and paste or File -> Make a Copy), and share the link to your "made over" version.

IMPORTANT! Links must be set to: Viewed by anyone on the internet. Test your link using incognito / private mode. Watch our tutorial on Creating and Checking Sharable Links.
