Abstract

Presentation-type software is used everywhere by people who want to make presentations to others, whether in person or over the Internet. Academics use presentation software for lectures; business leaders use presentation software for display of company results at shareholder meetings; and you can use presentation software, too. You can use presentation software for putting together either a professional-looking presentation for school or work, or even for a meeting at your local sporting club. Traditionally, presentation software is used to put together a series of slides that are projected onto a large screen; this software includes the ability to flick backwards and forwards between the slides. More recently, people have begun using presentations in a web-based setting. The advantages remain the same, whether you deliver the presentation in person or not. The ability to quickly add pictures; text in point form, whether bulleted or numbered; and other graphics, including the ability to set up templates for your logo; has helped such software become the tool of choice for anyone who delivers either oral or web-based presentations. In this chapter, we will cover how to create presentations in Google Presentations (Presentations). We will begin with the basics of Presentations, and then cover how to make the most of its features. At the end of the chapter, we will also provide some tips for creating good presentations.
