By adding presenter notes in Microsoft PowerPoint, you can keep your slides from being too text-heavy. Presenter notes also give you the option to be as detailed as you need to be for when you give the presentation.
- [Instructor] One way to keep the total amount of text … on your slides down … is to take advantage of presenter's notes. … These are the notes that only you can see … while giving the presentation. … An advantage of presenter's notes … is that you can be as detailed as you need, … and then you can see these notes … when you're using the presenter's view. … This view is an option … if you have a projector hooked up … and you choose not to mirror the same content … on both screens. … So you send out the slides for the audience to see … and have your notes and the presenter view up … for you to see. … Let's take a look at how it works. … From view here, let's switch to the outline view. … I'll go ahead and close this as well, … and this lets me see the outline on my left. … You'll notice down below here, we can then see notes. … So let's go to the last slide. … And in this case, I'd like to add some notes to myself. … For example, I can type in discuss the benefits … of the project management institute and PMP certification. …
