All the professors I had in college used PowerPoint correctly. I was a CS major so perhaps my professors PowerPoint literacy rate was better than average.

My professors would make their own short slides and use each slide as a launching point for that part of the lecture. I would print the slides in note taking format prior to class and supplement the lecture with handwritten notes. I always thought it was a great way to learn.


+ - GUI Design Book Recommendations? 8

jetpack (22743) writes "I've always hated writing user interfaces, and graphical user interfaces in particular. However, I suspect that is largely because I have no clue how to write a *good* one. By this, I don't mean the technical aspects, like using the APIs and so on. I mean what are the issues in designing an interface that is clean, easy to understand and easy to use? What are things to be considered? What are things to be avoided? What are good over-all philosophies of UI design?

To this end, I'd like to pick up a book or two (or three) and get my learn on. I'd appreciate some book suggestions from the UI experts in the Slashdot crowd."
