Slidedocs are consumed differently than cinematic presentations. One way to make navigating slidedoc content easier for the reader is to let them jump to the content they find most interesting. Presentations are self-navigable if you add hyperlinks and inter-application links so users can jump around the material. This is an added user benefit and a major advantage of digital presentations. Here are some examples of natural ways to add interactivity and navigation:
A Strong Finish
It should be clear when the reader is at the end of a section or at the end of the entire document. Below is a list of elements often found at the end of sections or documents:
Presentation Summary: Encapsulate the main points in a summary to remind the audience of the most important ideas.
Activities: Test if the reader learned what you needed them to know by adding a quiz or worksheets.
Topics of discussion: Frame up provocative questions for discussion at the end of your presentation to help readers think.
Glossary: Help readers understand your distinct vocabulary or acronyms by clarifying what they mean in a glossary.
Appendix: Add supporting statistical and research information as an appendix for readers who want a deep dive.
Additional info: Link to in-depth materials (forums, discussion boards, white papers) for readers who want to research further.
Reference pages: Cite resources and give credit to your sourced authors so readers can gain more insights.
Presentation Index: Key words are pulled out, displayed alphabetically, and associated with a page number by using an index.
