Presentation prep: 30 hours and counting

| No Comments

30 hours. 4 on Thursday. 10 Friday and 10 more Saturday. 6 today. Whew.

My interview is Wednesday morning. I expect to review the presentation again once (or twice or thrice…) before then. The interview includes a 10-15-minute presentation. I decided to create a PowerPoint presentation with embedded screenshots of the course management system (CMS) since the topic is an introduction to the CMS not a hands-on workshop.

To prepare, I reviewed 4 books, took notes, outlined in PowerPoint, created a course in the CMS complete with lectures, discussions, assignments, web links, assessments, and more. Then I made screenshots, added small versions to the presentation file, and linked most of the small images to full-screen images. I've fine-tuned slide animations for a smooth flow.

The final (at least right now) presentation has 22 slides. 22 in 15 minutes is about 41 seconds per slide, but there are a few that will be quick and at least 1 that will be longer.

Time to think about something else for a while… Maybe hang up the clothes piled 2 feet high on my dresser! (Not kidding - 2 feet!) And, as you can see by this entry's photo, we haven't yet gotten around to moving the framed picture and 4 wall candles since we rearranged our bedroom in October 2006 (yes, over a year ago!).
