  • PowerPoint presentations should be in Microsoft PowerPoint Slideshow format in either the .ppt or .pptx versions. If you are doing a voice over PowerPoint make sure that the voice files are properly embedded.
  • To save your PowerPoint presentation as a .wmv video file - Choose File > Save & Send > Create a Video (PowerPoint 2010) or File > Export > Create a video (PowerPoint 2013)

Simple presentations such as speaking to the webcam and a succession of stills with commentary are acceptable, as are more complex submissions. Students who do not have access to facilities which would allow them to prepare such an audio-visual presentation should approach their tutor before the end of week 3 to make alternative arrangements. The alternative arrangement will most likely be the production of a full-page newspaper advertisement or poster, A3 size.


REMEMBER always check your Course Outline as it outlines the requirements for each assignment plus assessment details and marking criteria.
