For Professional Experience #3, you will locate an article, video, or other resource that relates to using PowerPoint or effective slide design and utilize PowerPoint to write your summary and include your link.
Step One: Access and download the “Week 5 PPT Resources” file. This file link will take you to a PowerPoint presentation template entitled “PPT_Resources.” Once downloaded, review the document.
Step Two: Save the file to your desktop using the following file name format:
- Example: Ed_Buchanan_Wk5_PPT.pptx
Step Three: Locate an article, video, or another resource that relates to using PowerPoint or effective slide design. Make sure the article or video is about how to do a PowerPoint Presentation. No other topics should be used.
Step Four: The PPT template you downloaded has two slides: a title slide and a body slide (slide 2). Write a brief summary of your resource on the body slide only. Do not write fewer than 20 words or more than 50 words or else the submission will not be eligible for credit.
Step Five: Include a link to the resource/information on the body slide. Provide a hyperlink (not a URL) on the slide so that your professor can read the article or watch the video. The link will not count towards your word count. Save all changes that you have made to the document with your name in the file name.
Step Six: Upload your completed PowerPoint document using the Professional Experience #3 assignment link in Blackboard.

- Provide a useful article, video, or other resource on using PowerPoint and/or effective slide design
