Mark points to Garr Reynolds who is one of my favorites. I love the comparison of the 2 slides. One thing I've tried to start doing for my presentations these days is this:
- Use powerpoint the way everyone does with the bullet templates
- Then I go back and find/create an image that best illustrates EACH bullet point.
The amplification through simplification process is HIGHLY effective for presentations. So, why wouldn't it be helpful if we "simplify" our training modules/objectives/pages/items?
Design is EVERYTHING and it will continue to be that way on into the future.
