Slidedocs: the new presentation format
Slidedoc (n.) a visual document, developed in presentation software, that is intended to be read and referenced instead of projected.
Nancy Duarte, communication expert and author of three award-winning books, published an awesome tutorial on how to write effective Slidedocs, a document that contains the right balance of detail and scanability to be used as a pre-read or handout and that combines the strengths of documents and presentations.
Slidedocs help you spread your smart thinking by combining visual communications with short chunks of written copy. Their scannable nature makes them great pre-read, reference, and leave-behind materials. Their modularity makes it easy for people to incorporate your ideas into their own communications. And these features together make slidedocs the perfect companion to both written documents and presentations.
