Some things to think about while Reading Chapters 11 and 13


1. Which could you use more effectively: a powerpoint outline or a storyboard? Why?

2. Explain the quote on page 298: "Many people make one giant, very common mistake when they put together a multimedia presentation - they emphasize the multimedia and forget about the presentation. Avoiding this mistake will vastly increase your likelihood of success. Making this mistake will almost guarantee failure." Kushner, 1997, p. 191.

3. Why did the Chairman and CEO of SUN Microsystems ban powerpoint? (p. 311)

4. What two rules for using visuals do you find important?
