What not to do with PowerPoint by Don McMillan

We have all been at presentations where we have understood the meaning of "Death by PowerPoint". Some lecturers, like me, bore the pants of our students with endless slides showing bullet points and diagrams that we want our students to learn off and give back to us in an examination. These presentations are actually course notes, but somehow they have now become an essential presentation tool and I use them all the time. I don't claim to be good at presentations and I'm sure I too fall into the "What not to do with PowerPoint" trap all the time.

Comedian Don McMillan in his "Life After Death by Powerpoint 2010" comedy ketch has hit the nail on the head with what not to do. Take a look, and if you use PowerPoint and do not do any of the things Don describes in the following video, you are a PowerPoint guru and I want to watch your presentation!
