Wouldn’t it be nice if there was a sleek and efficient way of navigating to the various sections of your presentation without ever having to exit from presentation mode?
In this article, I am going to show you step-by-step how to create a visually appealing Table of Contents slide which will allow you to jump around to specific sections of the presentation seamlessly.
This “Prezi-like” clickable Table of Contents slide can be particularly handy when:
- You have a lengthy presentation and want the flexibility of presenting various sections in a non-linear fashion.
- An audience member asks you to “go back” to a particular section of your presentation, and you want to find it quickly.
- You want to add some playfulness to your presentation.
Here’s a short 3-minute video that shows how it works:
Step #1 – Design Your Table of Contents Slide
The beauty of creating a clickable (choose your own adventure) Table of Contents slide is that it gives you the flexibility of skipping to any section in your presentation with a single click of the mouse. No more fumbling through your entire deck to find the particular section you are looking for. It also adds some playfulness to your presentation that your audience craves. After all, who didn’t like reading those “choose your own adventure” books as a kid.
