Design tips for CLASS slides
The slide dimensions are 16:9 (widescreen) in PowerPoint or 11 inches by 6.187 inches. Slides sent in other formats will include "blank space" along the side margins. Slides should include one or several images or graphics, one bold heading, and 2 to 3 smaller headings or bullet points. Small font sizes do not project clearly onto the screen. Slides with too much text, poor resolution images/graphics, or fonts that are too small to read might be returned for revisions.
