    General Presentation Resources

    With a little bit of knowledge, some great resources and some practice, you can drastically improve your presentations, making you more at-ease in front of an audience, and making the experience more enjoyable for them as well.

    Here are some general resources to get you started:

    Microsoft Office PowerPoint | Apple Keynote | Prezi
    These are three of the most-used slide presentation tools.

    http://www.slideshare.com
    SlideShare is a forum where you can upload and share your own presentation slides, as well as view others. It's a great site for techniques and inspiration for your slides.

    Developed by Dr. Michael Alley at Penn State University, the Assertion-Evidence slide design model is especially useful for research presentations.

    http://www.presentationzen.com
    Garr Reynolds’ blog, “Presentation Zen” is one of the best. Read it regularly.
