Best Way to present Tips and Techniques

Apr 24, 2019

Hi there friends,

What is the best way I can present 4 tips other than putting it in bullet points?

Also, 5 techniques/methods to perform a particular activity. 

I am grateful for examples, references and advice.

Hi, Avril,

Instead of showing the tips as bullet points, show each one on its own, e.g., in a colored shape, or on top of/aligned with an image (if there are appropriate images). Having 4 makes it easy; just divide the slide area into quadrants, and fill each area with a tip. Even though the amount of text remains the same, this makes it more interesting than just seeing bullet points.

I recommend Nancy Duarte's book "Slide:ology" for inspiration. It's also good to look at the eLearning Challenges or other online examples.

There are lots of techniques/methods to perform activities. The one you choose depends on what you want to accomplish. Again, the eLearning Challenges provide great examples.

I Avril: 

I just did a project like this "four ways to be a great project sponsor".   I did a very short explainer video in Doodly, then I made a game so they could apply to concepts.  This was for  C level learners and they loved it becuase it was short and engaging and they were very concerned with their score. Happy to share with you if you want.

Hey Avril! This is such a great question! One method that I often use, is to represent each bullet point with a meaningful icon or graphic. Even if you still end up with a list on the screen, they won't feel like bullet points to the learner.

I actually wrote a blog post on this a few years back. You can check it out here:

I hope that helps!
