VERY IMPORTANT/KEY ADDITIONAL NOTES FROM THE INSTRUCTOR (PLEASE BE SURE TO ABIDE BY THESE GUIDELINES):
Hi All—A participant asked for clarification about the session 6 assignment and I thought it may help others as well:
Here is the question:
Are we to create an outline of our presentation in essay form or are we to use PPT or Google Slides to create the presentation and include notes for the reader to use/follow with the presentation?
Here is my response:
Thanks for reaching out! You do not create an actual PPT or Slide share. Please create a brief essay–300-400 words–that answers all the guiding questions given in the directions. Be sure to cite course resources to support your key points.
The idea is to get your ideas down, but brief enough that it could easily be adapted into an actual presentation.
Be sure to read and follow the detailed directions for the assignment in the course session 6 assignment area LISTED ABOVE
