My ode to PowerPoint

Regarding the Big Question, I love PowerPoint to create graphics and present findings. What is great about them is that I can first play with them for a while to get them right, then embed them in Word documents, where they are small from a size perspective, remain editable, but also print (and translate to Acrobat) incredibly well because the programs still recognize the text in them. Given that the value that I often provide to clients is create fabulous IP, this is critical. Here are some public examples of PowerPoints I have created, and please click to enlarge.

Yikes.

Thanks for sharing these great info-graphics. I'm very interested (as a former Click2Learn-er) in the last one titled "height of e-Learning" and I'm wondering if that's been published, or updated to reflect beyond 2005?

I really haven't updated the consolidation chart, in part because I no longer had to keep up with it. It wouldn't be hard to do.

These diagrams are scary. I assume they have some other purpose than communicating information, correct?

Hi Dennis,

Their purpose is to communicate information. But either in writing or presentation, I will build to the full chart, hopefully taking people along with me. For example, with the content/ management/ experience chart, I used less than ten percent of the chart to map out different technologies throughout the course of a book, creating a very simple chart. Then at the end of the book, I showed the whole thing.

Hi Clark,

When I first looked at them I was a bit surprised that they were created using powerpoint. They look great.

It serves as an excellent example of how we sometimes allow our biases or assumptions to prevent us from exploiting familiar tools. I've seen some related posts stating that powerpoints are somehow inappropriate for training.

That is utter nonsense - in every organization in this country every day people are using powerpoint to convey knowledge. My 10 year old son presented a report on Mars using .ppt and it looked greated and communicated a great deal of information.

Learning content does not have to be expensive, dynamic or otherwise sanctified to be valid...
