An increasing number of instructors at all levels of education are using presentation software to accompany lectures. These
presentations can include graphics, photographs, animation, video, music, voice files, and a variety of text fonts and sizes.
The ease with which a variety of media can be incorporated into the presentations makes it very possible that more attention
will be paid to the inclusion of these Abells and whistles@ rather than to the actual instructional impact of the presentation.
This paper addresses ways of looking at the structure of the presentation frames and some suggestions to improve the
instructional impact of instructional presentations.
