What Is a Web-Based Presentation?

If you’ve learned nothing else from me throughout this book, hopefully you’ve remembered my complaining about how too much paper is wasted by presenters who insist on providing printed handouts of their slides. With the Web, you now have a paperless method of making slides available. Consider these situations, for example:

  • Prior to an important meeting of the board of directors, you post a barebones version of your presentation, including key questions and information. At the meeting, you build on what board members have already thought about, fleshing out the presentation with additional slides and discussion.

  • You’ve concluded a terrific speech to your professional organization, and several people ask if they can get copies of your slides because they missed writing down several key details. You provide them with a Web address and invite them to view the slide show there.

  • You make a slide show available to students the day before class so that those who want to can print slides to use as an outline on which they can take indepth class notes.

  • You present the findings of your research at a conference, but the audience is relatively small. You want to disseminate your work more widely, so you post your presentation on the Web, along with links to your bibliographies, data, and so on.
