Best practices in giving a Wikipedia presentation
Share your experiences in giving Wikipedia presentations with others [ edit ]
- Start with thinking about the expectations of the audience and about your own goals
- Show your audience the numbers
- Tell people about our vision
- Tell people how you have benefited from contributing to Wikipedia
- Tell people why Wikipedia needs their help
- Include a practical "how to" demonstration on Wikipedia editing, illustrating that it is easy to get started. Begin small, showing how to add a wikilink, fix a typo, add a sentence or a phrase, and proceed from there.
- Try to reach people where they are. Request to give special Wikipedia presentations at non-Wikipedia events.
- Frequently asked questions
- Tricky questions to expect
- Some themes that might be interesting to build your presentation around

Convert PowerPoint Presentations into Wiki Pages for Online Delivery
Tags: Content , Online , Powerpoint , Wiki
While PowerPoint presentations can be effective when used as a visual aid to support the messages presented face-to-face, they are typically not as effective when viewed in a fully online environment where the instructor is absent. It is difficult to include enough context to the slides without adding excessive text (Shank, 2012).
Converting the information contained in a PowerPoint presentation into multiple wiki pages can help online students process and understand the material in a more effective way. Images, videos, text, audio, and other interactive elements can be added to support the information previously included on PowerPoint slides. Wiki pages seamlessly integrate with the existing online course and are also typically more accessible for technologies such as screen readers and mobile devices.

- Instructor: Dr. Beatriz Reyes-Foster, Assistant Professor, Anthropology, College of Sciences, UCF
- Course Title: ANT3610: Language and Culture
In order to support students in this fully online course, Dr. Reyes-Foster converted the information in an already existing PowerPoint presentation into a series of wiki pages within the learning management system.
Figure 2: PPT 2
Figures 1 and 2 display two PowerPoint slides originally used in a face-to-face session to demonstrate language hypotheses. These slides lack the instructor’s explanation in a fully online environment, so there is no information to enhance or support understanding of the models. The information in the two slides is now converted to one wiki page (Figure 3), which allows for side-by-side comparison of the two hypotheses. It also allows Dr. Reyes-Foster to present textual information to further support the hypotheses in an online environment.
- Instructor: Dr. Marc Consalo, Lecturer, Legal Studies, College of Health and Public Affairs, UCF
- Course Title: PLA3306: Criminal Law
This course was converted from a face-to-face to online environment. Given a short development timeline, Dr. Consalo utilized his PowerPoint presentations as a basis for his online course content.
Figure 5: PPT Slide 2
Figures 4 and 5 display two PowerPoint slides originally used in a face-to-face session. These slides lack the instructor’s explanation in a fully online environment, so there is no information to enhance or support understanding. The information in the two slides is now converted to one wiki page (Figure 6), which uses a the parent topic “Sources of Criminal Law” as the page title. Each slide is broken up into sub headings for clarity. Also, the inclusion of external resources and images allow Dr. Consalo to enhance the learner’s experience.

- Presentation Skills
Presentation skills are the skills you need in delivering effective and engaging presentations to a variety of audiences. These skills cover a variety of areas such as the structure of your presentation, the design of your slides, the tone of your voice and the body language you convey.
Watch the video as an introduction to presentation skills:
Structuring your Presentation
Structure is important because a well organized presentation creates an impression that you know what you are talking about-you will gain the audience's trust and they will be more likely to listen to you. A structure provides a logical flow so that you can provide the information that the audience needs to follow your presentation. The structure will help you become more comfortable following this flow. There is a natural structure to presenting and the following structure formalizes this process.
To determine your purpose ask "What are the main points I want my audience to take away from my presentation"? This provides focus for you and the audience is clear on what they will gain listening to your presentation.
- Audience pre-assessment
It is important to identify the characteristics, knowledge and needs of your audience so that you are delivering the 'right' presentation to the 'right' audience. Know who your audience is, what they want/need to know and what is their background. This step is done before the presentation or throughout.
- Opening your Presentation/Bridge
This is also known as the hook. It is designed to grab the audience's attention and provide them with a reason to be interested in the presentation.
- Body of Presentation
This is the major portion of the presentation. It is necessary that it connects directly to your purpose or bridge. Cover enough points to achieve your purpose (no more) and be sure to support your points clearly and concisely.
- Closing your Presentation
This is the final impression that you will leave with your audience-make sure it is a strong one. Connect back to your purpose and let them know where you have been. Leave your audience with a clear understanding of your points.
10 - 20 - 30 Rule
In 2005, Guy Kawasaki , a venture capitalist in Silicon Valley wrote on his blog about a rule of thumb in making great presentations. Focusing on conciseness and visibility, he suggested the 10 - 20 - 30 Rule of PowerPoint Presentations .
- 30-size Font
Keep in mind that these rules are very subjective and each situation is unique. Apply them as a good rule of thumb to guide you in planning your presentations. Other circumstances may come and you need to be flexible however, have your visible and concise presentations.
Following the 6 x 6 rule, limits any text to 6 words per line and 6 lines per slide. Similar to the 10 - 20 - 30 rule, it focuses on readability and conciseness.
When used effectively, text can be useful in conveying ideas in presentations. Too much text though can look monotonous and tiring for audiences to read. You are reminded to distill your thoughts into short lines and use your presence to expand into more detail. Audiences are there to listen and watch you, not read your slides.

Using visual aids to represent your ideas are a great way to engage your audiences with your presentation. Your thoughts and examples might get lost in a sea of text where audiences might have a challenging time what to remember or take note of. Take some time to challenge yourself with using visual aids such as images, videos, and illustrations.
