Day 1 – Death by powerpoint !

June 3, 2008 at 7:32 am | Posted in Uncategorized | Leave a comment

People used to think it was funny when they came over to my place in my teenage years..my dad is a glazier – he used to sell all types of mirrors in his shop too…but we didn’t have one decent full size mirror at home..we made do with reflections from the large windows!

I find it interesting when people say they are e-learning developers, graphic designers, web designers etc and they present text dense, bullet point ridden PowerPoint presentations. Is it unfair to expect all their work to display some sort of creativity? I guess it’s similar to my dad in a way..the fact we didn’t have mirrors in our place didn’t exactly mean he was a bad glazier..he is actually one of the best in town!

So day 1 of the Embracing Innovative e-learning Technologies conference was overtaken by bad bad powerpoint..it was painful 😦  It actually detracted from what the speakers where talking about..i couldn’t focus. It just made me wonder what the correlation between badly designed ppt and designing rapid e-learning was..

Fingers crossed today’s better. I’ll post summaries of the sessions during the week.
