This video demonstrates how to use the notes section to create speaker notes that are only visible to the presenter or that can be printed on handouts of the presentation.
- [Instructor] One of the cardinal rules of presentations…is that you shouldn't fill your slides with text.…Don't force your audience to read along with you…by putting complete sentences or paragraphs on your slides.…Ideally, you should present key bullet points…and expand on them verbally during your presentation.…Now, this causes some people to worry…about having to remember all the points…or information they want to get across.…But that's what the speaker note section is for.…Speaker notes are notes you only see…on your own computer while presenting as long…as you're connecting to a projector or a second monitor.…Each individual slide has its own note section,…so you can always see your notes for that slide…when that comes up in your presentation.…
Now, if you don't see this notes area at the bottom…of the window click the notes button here,…which toggles that open and closed.…We can also expand this panel…to get room to write your notes.…And then just type in whatever you need…to remember for this particular slide.…
