Project #74299 - 18-22 powerpoint slide on digital media




Digital media has changed the ways ideas, information, and arguments in society are communicated both locally and globally. Individuals and organizations frequently use digital media as a means to influence individuals and organizations. 

 Deliverable for Project 2

Students are required to identify news stories which demonstrate how digital media has been used to influence or has changed core business processes within organizations or for individuals. You will then create a presentation using PowerPoint which interprets and analyzes how the messages within the digital media were used to guide decision-making. Ensure that this is done on organization or individual not a broad topic. If unsure ask me about topic




Formatting Requirements

  1. Number of Slides: Minimum of 18 slides and a maximum of 22. Gradated penalty for too less or too many slides. This means that the more slides you are away from the 18-to-22 range, the more points will be deducted.  The slide count excludes the title and bibliographical slides.
  2. Layout and Design: Slides must be easy to read and uncluttered
  3. Font Size: Use standard font like Times New Roman or Arial. A good rule of thumb is about 36-point font for title, 28-point font for main points, and 24-point font for secondary points.
  4. Footer: Include the slide number, title of your presentation, and your name in the footer (except on title slide).
  5. File Name: The document is saved using the correct protocol (FirstInitial_LastName_Presentation
  6. Images: Images appropriate for the presentation are encouraged. The images must look professional (not cartoonish, pixilated, or poorly designed). No more than five pictures/images for the entire presentation.
  7. Background/Theme: Appropriate for the presentation. Use creativity here, but your background color or design must not detract from the readability of the slides. A bad example would be using dark text against a dark background. Make sure the background and font colors are a good contrast.

Presentation Requirements

  1. Title Slide: Include your name, instructor’s name, course name, project title.
  2. Contents:
    1. Introduction and Synopsis of News Story
    2. Influence on or change to Organization and/or Individual
    3. Analysis of How Digital Media Guided Decision Making
    4. Conclusion and Analysis of Results of Change

3.     Do not give a term paper on slides.  In other words slides should have bullets with key points not large paragraphs of text..  You can use notes area to give more detail and I would expect that area would need to be used to do this sufficiently. 

4.     Use heading on slides with criteria you are covering for example.  Slides related to how digital media guided decision making should have title on slide that lets reader know that is what you are covering . This presents and organized presentation.


  1. References

    2. Minimum of 2 professional / scholarly sources cited using APA formatting.
      1. Sites such Wikipedia are not permitted and are not considered to have sufficient veracity
      2. A slide with full references is expected and in text references are expected either on the slide or in notes area which is below the slide in normal view. If you do not know what that is let me know.
      3. Work will not be accepted that does not have in text references and full references
