Make A Presentation Or Do A Presentation – Which Is Correct?

make or do presentation

When it comes to giving presentations, there is a lot of confusion about whether you should “make” a presentation or “do” a presentation. Both are correct, but they have different meanings.

The terms “make” and “do have different meanings depending on the context in which they are used. In general, “make” is used when creating something new, while “do” is used when performing an action

Definition Of Terms

In the context of presentations, “make” means to create a presentation from scratch, while “do” means to deliver a presentation that someone else has created.

Here is an example:

You will need to make a presentation for your sales team tomorrow. This means that you will have to create the presentation from scratch.

On the other hand, if your boss asks you to do a presentation, this means that he or she has already created the presentation and wants you to deliver it.

Both “make” and “do” can be used when referring to the act of giving a presentation, but they have different implications.

Which Is Correct?

Both of these terms are correct if you use them in the proper context. Interchanging them might lead to misinformation or confusion. Make sure you understand the meaning of each term before using it.

If you want to avoid any confusion, it is best to stick to using “deliver” when referring to giving a presentation. This term can be used regardless of whether you created the presentation or not.

Final Thoughts

Giving presentations can be nerve-wracking, but it is important to choose the right term when referring to the task at hand. “Make” and “do” both have their place, but using the wrong one can lead to confusion. We hope this article has cleared things up for you. Thanks for reading!

1. Basic Ways to Use ‘Do’ and ‘Make’

Gina: What are you doing?

Martin: I’m making a shopping list. I need some stuff to make dinner.

G: What are you going to make?

M: I think some kind of stir-fry. I have to do some work, too, so I need something quick.

G: Sounds tasty! Why do you have to work?

M: I have to make a presentation for our meeting tomorrow, and I need to check through what I’ve written, and maybe change a few things. By the way, can you do the washing-up before I get back? I’d like to start cooking as soon as I get in. I need to do everything and get to bed early.

G: Sure, I’ll do it now.

Here, you saw three ways to use ‘do’ and three ways to use ‘make’. Can you remember them?

  • I’m making a shopping list.
  • I need some stuff to make dinner.
  • I have to make a presentation for our meeting tomorrow.
  • Can you do the washing-up before I get back?
  • I have to do some work.
  • I need to do everything and get to bed early.

Imagine you’re an English teacher . Could you explain the basic difference between ‘do’ and ‘make’ to someone? How would you do it? Think about it!

‘Do’ means to perform an activity or a task. For example, you do work, do the washing-up, or do everything.

‘Make’ means to create something and/or produce a result. If you make a shopping list, make dinner, or make a presentation, then you create something; there’s a result at the end of the process. That’s the basic difference between ‘do’ and ‘make’.

In the rest of this lesson from Oxford Online English, you’ll learn about how to use make and do in more detail, but keep this basic idea in your head.

2. ‘Make’ = Create Something

How to use make to create something - Person making a wood carving

Martin: What’s that?

Gina: I’m making a card for Sasha’s leaving party. I thought it would be nicer to make it myself, rather than just buy something.

M: How’s it going?

G: It’s a lot harder than I thought it would be! This is my second attempt. I made a lot of mistakes first time and I had to throw it away, but now I think I’m making progress.

M: What happened in the kitchen?! Did you make all that mess?

G: Ah… Yeah… I need to make a cake, too. I mean, I’ve started making a cake.

M: Let me guess: ‘harder than you thought it would be’?

G: Yeah… A little. I’m trying to make an orange and chocolate sponge.

M: There’s chocolate all over the walls! What happened?

G: Well, the mixer was making a strange noise, so I took the lid off to see if there was a problem, but I forgot to turn it off, so the chocolate mixture went everywhere. Don’t worry; I’ll clean it up.

You can use ‘make’ when you create a result. You can use ‘make’ for things with a physical result, like ‘make a card’, ‘make a cake’, or ‘make dinner’. You can also use ‘make’ for non-physical results, like ‘make a mistake’, ‘make progress’ or ‘make a noise’.

Here’s a question: can you think of more examples like this? Pause the video and try to find three more examples of phrases with ‘make’ which describe physical results, and three which describe non-physical results. Can’t think of three? Try to find one, or two! Pause the video and do it now.

Ready? What did you get? For physical results, it’s common to use ‘make’ with food and drink, like ‘make a sandwich’, ‘make a cup of coffee’, or ‘make pizza.’ You can also ‘make a toy’, ‘make a chair’, or ‘make a shelf’, if you do it yourself. You can say that companies make things; for example: ‘Apple make the iPhone’, or ‘Honda make cars’.

For non-physical results, there are many possibilities. You could say ‘make a joke’, ‘make a suggestion’, ‘make a friend’, or ‘make an appointment.’ It’s also common to use ‘make’ with money words, like ‘make money’, ‘make a profit’ or ‘make an investment.’

Did you get any of these phrases? Did you find examples that we didn’t mention? Please share your ideas in the comments!

Next, let’s look at a slightly different way to use ‘make’.

3. Make = Produce a Reaction

How to use make to cause a reaction - Man with a tissue reacting to allergies

Gina: What’s wrong? Did something happen?

Martin: What? No, nothing.

G: You look sad.

M: It’s my allergies . At this time of year, they make my face really puffy. Plus, they make my eyes water.

G: Are you taking anything?

M: Yeah, I take antihistamines, but they don’t help that much, and they make me sleepy.

G: What are you allergic to? Pollen?

M: I think so, but it makes me sensitive to other things, too, like dust. It’s bad, but it only lasts four weeks or so.

You can use ‘make’ to mean ‘produce a reaction in someone.’ Similar to the last section, this could be a physical reaction, as in:

  • They make my face really puffy.
  • They make my eyes water.
  • The antihistamines make me sleepy.

You could also use it for emotional reactions. For example:

  • The news made him angry.
  • Thinking about what he said made me happy.

Finally, you can use ‘make’ for reactions which are both physical and emotional, like this:

  • It was such a sad film. It made me cry for hours.
  • He’s so funny. He makes me laugh all the time.

OK, here’s a task for you. Look at three questions:

  • What makes you really happy?
  • Can you remember the last thing that made you laugh?
  • What could make you angry?

Can you answer these three questions for yourself? Pause the video, and make your answers. You can write them down, say them out loud, or both.

OK? Could you do it? Of course, everyone’s answers will be different, but here are three suggestions:

  • Being outside on a beautiful day makes me really happy.
  • The last thing that made me laugh was a joke my colleague made in a meeting this morning.
  • Someone not telling the truth could make me angry.

Were your answers similar, or not? Feel free to post your answers in the comments and share them with other learners.

Now, you’ve seen many ways to use ‘make’. What about ‘do’?

4. Do = Carry Out a Task

Group of people working - how to use do to 'do' a task

Martin: Have you done the report for our sales meeting tomorrow?

Gina: No. I won’t be here. Did you not get my email?

M: What email?

G: I sent it to you last week. I’ve been doing a course on digital marketing, and tomorrow I have to do the final exam.

M: So, who’ll do the report?

G: I don’t know!

M: Is there no way you can do it?

G: Sorry, no. I’ve done most of my work for today, and then I’m going straight home to do some last-minute revision.

Remember that ‘do’ means that you perform a task or an activity. You often use it to talk about things you do at work or school. Look at three examples you heard in the dialogue. Can you remember how to complete the missing words?

  • Have you done the ________ for our sales meeting?
  • I’ve been doing a ________ on digital marketing.
  • I’m going home to do some last-minute ________

Can you get the answers? You’ll see them in a second.

  • Have you done the report for our sales meeting?
  • I’ve been doing a course on digital marketing.
  • I’m going home to do some last-minute revision.

So, you can ‘do work’, ‘do business’, ‘do a deal’, ‘do a report’, and so on. You can also use ‘do’ with other kinds of work, like ‘do housework’ or ‘do homework’. Also, you can use ‘do’ for many things connected with studies and education . You ‘do research’, ‘do exams’, ‘do a course’, ‘do revision’ and ‘do a subject’.

With some of these, you can use other verbs, too. For example, you can ‘do an exam’, or ‘take an exam’. You can also use ‘take’ with ‘course’ or ‘subject’. For example, you can say ‘I have to take four subjects in my first year of university,’ or ‘I have to do four subjects in my first year…’ There’s no difference in meaning; it doesn’t matter which you use.

Let’s look at one more common way to use ‘do’.

5. Do + Something/Anything/Everything/Nothing

Gina: Have you done anything about the washing machine?

Martin: No, not yet.

G: Well, when are you going to do something? It’s been a week. I’m running out of clean clothes!

M: You could do it too, you know. I can’t do everything around here!

G: What do you mean ‘do everything’? You’ve done nothing all day! You spent the morning watching cartoons in your underwear!

M: Fine, I’ll do it tomorrow.

You can use ‘do’ as a general verb in phrases like ‘do something’. You heard three more phrases like this in the dialogue. Can you remember them? You heard, ‘do anything’, ‘do everything’ and ‘do nothing.’

You can use these phrases in different ways. For example:

  • I need to do something about my hair. It’s a mess!
  • Do you want to do anything this weekend?
  • She’s so lazy! She sits in her office all day doing nothing.
  • They’re a very close couple; they do everything together.

Easy, right? To practise, try to make your own examples, too.

Let’s do one more thing. In our last section, you’ll see some common collocations and phrases using ‘make’ and ‘do’.

6. Phrasal Verbs and Collocations

Gina: What did you make of the play?

Martin: It was interesting, but you could see that they were on a tight budget. They could have done with better lighting, for one thing. I could hardly see sometimes.

G: I know what you mean. I thought they did a good job of making do with what they had, but obviously it would have been better if they’d had more resources.

M: Yeah, they did their best.

Look at some phrasal verbs and collocations with ‘make’ and ‘do’ which you heard.

  • do a good job
  • do (your) best

Can you remember how they were used? Could you explain what they mean?

‘Make of’ is mostly used in questions, when you want to ask someone for their opinion. If someone asks you ‘What did you make of it?’, they want to know what you thought. For example, if I ask you, ‘What did you make of the concert?’, I’m asking you for your opinion; did you like it, or not? Did you think it was good, or not?

‘Do with’ means to want or need. It’s conversational. You might say ‘I could do with a cup of tea’, meaning ‘I want a cup of tea.’ ‘Do a good job’ is easier to guess. If you do a good job, you do something well. It doesn’t have to be about work; you could use it about many things. You can also use different adjectives; for example ‘do a bad job’, ‘do an adequate job’, and so on.

‘Make do’ is harder to explain. Look at an example:

  • I didn’t have time to cook, so we made do with some snacks and small things.

Does this help? If you make do with something, you don’t have what you want, so you have to find a way to use something else. Here’s another example:

  • After we moved, the furniture didn’t arrive for a week, so for a bed we had to make do with a mattress on the floor.

This means that you didn’t have the thing you wanted—your bed—so you had to use something else. ‘Do your best’ means to try as hard as you can. It’s often used when you didn’t get the result you wanted. For example:

  • They did their best, but in the end they lost three-nil.
  • I did my best, but there was no way I could manage everything alone.

There are many more phrasal verbs and collocations with ‘make’ and ‘do’. Can you think of any more? If so, share your ideas in the comments, and make some examples to share your ideas with other learners!

Whether you’re an experienced presenter or a novice, the right techniques will let your presentation skills soar to new heights!

From public speaking hacks to interactive elements and storytelling prowess, these 9 effective presentation techniques will empower you to leave a lasting impression on your audience and make your presentations unforgettable.

1. Confidence and positive body language

Positive body language instantly captivates your audience, making them believe in your message as much as you do. Strengthen your stage presence and own that stage like it’s your second home! Stand tall, shoulders back and exude confidence. 

2. Eye contact with the audience

Break down that invisible barrier and connect with your audience through their eyes. Maintaining eye contact when giving a presentation builds trust and shows that you’re present and engaged with them.

3. Effective use of hand gestures and movement

A little movement goes a long way! Emphasize key points with purposeful gestures and don’t be afraid to walk around the stage. Your energy will be contagious!

4. Utilize storytelling techniques

Weave the magic of storytelling into your presentation. Share relatable anecdotes, inspiring success stories or even personal experiences that tug at the heartstrings of your audience. Adjust your pitch, pace and volume to match the emotions and intensity of the story. Varying your speaking voice adds depth and enhances your stage presence.

5. Incorporate multimedia elements

Spice up your presentation with a dash of visual pizzazz! Use slides, images and video clips to add depth and clarity to your message. Just remember, less is more—don’t overwhelm them with information overload. 

Turn your presentations into an interactive party! Involve your audience with questions, polls or group activities. When they actively participate, they become invested in your presentation’s success. Bring your design to life with animated elements. Venngage allows you to apply animations to icons, images and text to create dynamic and engaging visual content.

6. Utilize humor strategically

Laughter is the best medicine—and a fantastic presentation enhancer! A well-placed joke or lighthearted moment can break the ice and create a warm atmosphere , making your audience more receptive to your message.

7. Practice active listening and respond to feedback

Be attentive to your audience’s reactions and feedback. If they have questions or concerns, address them with genuine interest and respect. Your responsiveness builds rapport and shows that you genuinely care about their experience.

8. Apply the 10-20-30 rule

Apply the 10-20-30 presentation rule and keep it short, sweet and impactful! Stick to ten slides, deliver your presentation within 20 minutes and use a 30-point font to ensure clarity and focus. Less is more, and your audience will thank you for it!

9. Implement the 5-5-5 rule

Simplicity is key. Limit each slide to five bullet points, with only five words per bullet point and allow each slide to remain visible for about five seconds. This rule keeps your presentation concise and prevents information overload.

Simple presentations are more engaging because they are easier to follow. Summarize your presentations and keep them simple with Venngage’s gallery of simple presentation templates and ensure that your message is delivered effectively across your audience.

3. How to make a presentation interactive?

To make your presentation interactive, encourage questions and discussion throughout your talk. Utilize multimedia elements like videos or images and consider including polls, quizzes or group activities to actively involve your audience.

Make or Do a Presentation?

English Usage , The ICAL TEFL Blog


I was asked this question the other day by a learner of English; quite simply, do we MAKE or DO a presentation?

If you go online there are different stories, but as usual I went along to Google n-grams and checked out what they had to say.

It’s interesting. Prior to 1960 nobody really did anything with presentations. They didn’t often make, do, or give them. But soon after everyone was desperate to present something!

But check out the results below. In general, people MAKE a presentation or, slightly less often, GIVE a presentation. Whilst some people will DO a presentation, the number is pretty small compared to the other two options.

Since English teaching is all about teaching what people will need to know in order to make themselves understood, I confidently told the questioner that we MAKE a presentation.

How can you make a good presentation even more effective?

This page draws on published advice from expert presenters around the world, which will help to take your presentations from merely ‘good’ to ‘great’.

By bringing together advice from a wide range of people, the aim is to cover a whole range of areas.

Whether you are an experienced presenter, or just starting out, there should be ideas here to help you to improve.

1. Show your Passion and Connect with your Audience

It’s hard to be relaxed and be yourself when you’re nervous.

But time and again, the great presenters say that the most important thing is to connect with your audience, and the best way to do that is to let your passion for the subject shine through.

Be honest with the audience about what is important to you and why it matters.

Be enthusiastic and honest, and the audience will respond.

2. Focus on your Audience’s Needs

Your presentation needs to be built around what your audience is going to get out of the presentation.

As you prepare the presentation, you always need to bear in mind what the audience needs and wants to know, not what you can tell them.

While you’re giving the presentation, you also need to remain focused on your audience’s response, and react to that.

You need to make it easy for your audience to understand and respond.

3. Keep it Simple: Concentrate on your Core Message

When planning your presentation, you should always keep in mind the question:

What is the key message (or three key points) for my audience to take away?

You should be able to communicate that key message very briefly.

Some experts recommend a 30-second ‘elevator summary’, others that you can write it on the back of a business card, or say it in no more than 15 words.

Whichever rule you choose, the important thing is to keep your core message focused and brief.

And if what you are planning to say doesn’t contribute to that core message, don’t say it.

4. Smile and Make Eye Contact with your Audience

This sounds very easy, but a surprisingly large number of presenters fail to do it.

If you smile and make eye contact, you are building rapport , which helps the audience to connect with you and your subject. It also helps you to feel less nervous, because you are talking to individuals, not to a great mass of unknown people.

To help you with this, make sure that you don’t turn down all the lights so that only the slide screen is visible. Your audience needs to see you as well as your slides.

5. Start Strongly

The beginning of your presentation is crucial. You need to grab your audience’s attention and hold it.

They will give you a few minutes’ grace in which to entertain them, before they start to switch off if you’re dull. So don’t waste that on explaining who you are. Start by entertaining them.

Try a story (see tip 7 below), or an attention-grabbing (but useful) image on a slide.

6. Remember the 10-20-30 Rule for Slideshows

This is a tip from Guy Kawasaki of Apple. He suggests that slideshows should:

  • Contain no more than 10 slides;
  • Last no more than 20 minutes; and
  • Use a font size of no less than 30 point.

This last is particularly important as it stops you trying to put too much information on any one slide. This whole approach avoids the dreaded ‘Death by PowerPoint’.

As a general rule, slides should be the sideshow to you, the presenter. A good set of slides should be no use without the presenter, and they should definitely contain less, rather than more, information, expressed simply.

If you need to provide more information, create a bespoke handout and give it out after your presentation.

7. Tell Stories

Human beings are programmed to respond to stories.

Stories help us to pay attention, and also to remember things. If you can use stories in your presentation, your audience is more likely to engage and to remember your points afterwards. It is a good idea to start with a story, but there is a wider point too: you need your presentation to act like a story.

Think about what story you are trying to tell your audience, and create your presentation to tell it.

Finding The Story Behind Your Presentation

To effectively tell a story, focus on using at least one of the two most basic storytelling mechanics in your presentation:

Focusing On Characters – People have stories; things, data, and objects do not. So ask yourself “who” is directly involved in your topic that you can use as the focal point of your story.

For example, instead of talking about cars (your company’s products), you could focus on specific characters like:

  • The drivers the car is intended for – people looking for speed and adventure
  • The engineers who went out of their way to design the most cost-effective car imaginable

A Changing Dynamic – A story needs something to change along the way. So ask yourself “What is not as it should be?” and answer with what you are going to do about it (or what you did about it).

For example…

  • Did hazardous road conditions inspire you to build a rugged, all-terrain jeep that any family could afford?
  • Did a complicated and confusing food labelling system lead you to establish a colour-coded nutritional index so that anybody could easily understand it?

To see 15 more actionable storytelling tips, see Nuts & Bolts Speed Training’s post on Storytelling Tips .

8. Use your Voice Effectively

The spoken word is actually a pretty inefficient means of communication, because it uses only one of your audience’s five senses. That’s why presenters tend to use visual aids, too. But you can help to make the spoken word better by using your voice effectively.

Varying the speed at which you talk, and emphasising changes in pitch and tone all help to make your voice more interesting and hold your audience’s attention.

For more about this, see our page on Effective Speaking .

9. Use your Body Too

It has been estimated that more than three quarters of communication is non-verbal.

That means that as well as your tone of voice, your body language is crucial to getting your message across. Make sure that you are giving the right messages: body language to avoid includes crossed arms, hands held behind your back or in your pockets, and pacing the stage.

Make your gestures open and confident, and move naturally around the stage, and among the audience too, if possible.

10. Relax, Breathe and Enjoy

If you find presenting difficult, it can be hard to be calm and relaxed about doing it.

One option is to start by concentrating on your breathing. Slow it down, and make sure that you’re breathing fully. Make sure that you continue to pause for breath occasionally during your presentation too.

For more ideas, see our page on Coping with Presentation Nerves .

If you can bring yourself to relax, you will almost certainly present better. If you can actually start to enjoy yourself, your audience will respond to that, and engage better. Your presentations will improve exponentially, and so will your confidence. It’s well worth a try.

How to Give a Killer Presentation

  • Chris Anderson

make or do presentation

For more than 30 years, the TED conference series has presented enlightening talks that people enjoy watching. In this article, Anderson, TED’s curator, shares five keys to great presentations:

  • Frame your story (figure out where to start and where to end).
  • Plan your delivery (decide whether to memorize your speech word for word or develop bullet points and then rehearse it—over and over).
  • Work on stage presence (but remember that your story matters more than how you stand or whether you’re visibly nervous).
  • Plan the multimedia (whatever you do, don’t read from PowerPoint slides).
  • Put it together (play to your strengths and be authentic).

According to Anderson, presentations rise or fall on the quality of the idea, the narrative, and the passion of the speaker. It’s about substance—not style. In fact, it’s fairly easy to “coach out” the problems in a talk, but there’s no way to “coach in” the basic story—the presenter has to have the raw material. So if your thinking is not there yet, he advises, decline that invitation to speak. Instead, keep working until you have an idea that’s worth sharing.

Lessons from TED

A little more than a year ago, on a trip to Nairobi, Kenya, some colleagues and I met a 12-year-old Masai boy named Richard Turere, who told us a fascinating story. His family raises livestock on the edge of a vast national park, and one of the biggest challenges is protecting the animals from lions—especially at night. Richard had noticed that placing lamps in a field didn’t deter lion attacks, but when he walked the field with a torch, the lions stayed away. From a young age, he’d been interested in electronics, teaching himself by, for example, taking apart his parents’ radio. He used that experience to devise a system of lights that would turn on and off in sequence—using solar panels, a car battery, and a motorcycle indicator box—and thereby create a sense of movement that he hoped would scare off the lions. He installed the lights, and the lions stopped attacking. Soon villages elsewhere in Kenya began installing Richard’s “lion lights.”

to do/make a power point presentation

  • Thread starter Sintabaco
  • Start date Feb 17, 2013

Senior Member

  • Feb 17, 2013

hello , I would like to know which one is correct " to do a power point presentation" or " to make a power point presentation" Thanks for your help  


I would definitely say 'to make a PowerPoint presentation' is correct, with 'to do a PowerPoint presentation being informal and sometimes heard.  

Thank you very much  


It depends on what you are trying to say. If you are talking about the preparation of the the presentation, then you can use "prepare" or "put together." If you are talking about giving/presenting the presentation, you can use "give" or "do." The only reason I would avoid "present" is because of the redundancy of "present a presentation." I'm preparing / putting together a PP presentation for next week's meeting. I'm giving / doing a PP presentation at next week's meeting. Edit: "create" works too.  

After a Google search: - "Make a presentation" has 12,200,000 results (probably because it has more than one meaning...) - "Give a presentation" has 9,720,000 results. - "Do a presentation" has 5,250,000 results.  


Hola, Sintabaco: ¿Qué es lo que quieres expresar en español? Supongo que hacer , pero ¿en qué sentido? ¿Nos podrías dar una oración que sirva de ejemplo, por favor? Gracias. Saludos.  


I assume from the initial question that the Spanish was "hacer una presentación". If so, make is definitely the right word.

Why you should assume that your audience doesn’t care

I don't care text button on keyboard, concept background

Grounding us and making us think hard about what if we don’t do that presentation – Kris Flegg helps us think about our work

Your audience needs to be as interested in what you present as you are. It’s your job to make them. That’s the challenge you’re up against.

In most presentations, failure isn’t as dramatic as a ceiling falling down, a room full of heckling and boos or the audience walking out in protest. A presentation’s main failure is usually more subtle. Your idea goes nowhere, connections aren’t made or problems remain unsolved even after the audience has heard your solution. It’s silent, passive resistance to what you present and an unmoved audience.

Be honest and ask yourself: what happens if I fail to appear?

If you’re considering your audience’s needs, being their humble servant, beginning with the end in mind, following a structure and being authentically you, then you’ve already built a strong foundation for breaking through this resistance and making an impact.

Here’s another principle that will greatly assist. Start with the assumption no one really cares about what you’re planning to present, and that your job is to make them care. When you work with a certain subject matter every day, you can quickly lose objectivity when communicating.

Getting in the way of your presentation

When you lack objectivity about your topic, it presents two clear barriers when presenting:

  • You can easily assume everyone has at least an equal understanding of your subject matter.
  • Your day-to-day familiarity with your subject matter might mean you’re missing the wonder of it, that is, the magic it takes to bring the audience into your world.

The starting point in embracing this is to ask yourself what the difference is between your presentation taking place and not taking place. Unless you’re revealing how to survive a shark attack or you have cracked the code to cure illnesses, it’s unlikely the audience will be on the edge of their seats or glued to the screen waiting with bated breath.

Be honest and ask yourself: what happens if I fail to appear? What happens if the internet cuts out completely, and my Zoom presentation doesn’t happen? Ask yourself this question from the audience’s perspective. Will your failure to reach the audience have a dramatic impact on their lives? Take your time here. Think with your head and examine with your heart. Dig deep and find those reasons. If you’ve spent time on this and still can’t justify things, then throw everything out the window, reset and find a new lens.

The lens of realism

Assuming apathy is a healthy dose of self-imposed realism that forces you to focus on creating value and fair exchange with your audience. Once you’ve adopted this principle and are clear on the fact that what’s important to you may not be as important to everyone else, you’re in a good place.

Your task as a presenter is to move people from where they are to a future state. That’s not going to happen by luck or good fortune; it’s up to you and you should feel energised to do it.

Most presentations are time-fillers that will never make a difference or impact. To be a better presenter, you need to appreciate this and use your focus to make sure what you do has some sort of meaning. If you don’t care, or don’t appreciate this, the change you want won’t happen. The wall of passive resistance will win. Your job is to be a persuasive presenter. It’s not up to your audience to pretend to care. It’s up to you to persuade them.

Google Slides: How to make a Jeopardy game

J eopardy is one of the longest-running game shows, consistently garnering a large viewership. Many classrooms have adapted the popular American quiz show's format. Its familiarity and sense of competition make it an effective tool in school environments. Reviewing chapters becomes a fun experience for students. You can make a custom version of Jeopardy in Google Slides. The service works on your Android phone, iPhone, laptop, desktop PC, or budget Chromebook . This guide shows you how to make a Jeopardy game in Google Slides.

What is Jeopardy? How do you play it?

Jeopardy is a television quiz show which features three contestants trying to win money. The game show host quizzes them on trivia related to science, math, geography, language, and pop culture.

The Jeopardy game consists of three rounds. The first two rounds comprise six categories with five clues each. When a player chooses a topic and dollar value, the host reads the clue, and the participants use their buzzers to respond with the correct question. In Final Jeopardy, only contestants with a positive dollar amount can participate. The player with the highest total amount wins the prize and gets to play the next game. The second and third-place contestants win $2,000 and $1,000, respectively.

How to make a jeopardy game in google slides from scratch.

You can make a custom Jeopardy game to prepare for a new subject, review for a test, and more in Google Slides. You'll start by dividing the process into manageable sections, like making the game board, clues, and question slides. Finally, you'll link the relevant slides to create a Jeopardy game.

Create the Jeopardy game board

You'll first make the game board with the categories and score. Create a table in Google Slides with the subjects in the top row and the scoring system in the remaining rows. In this example, to include five topics with five clues each, make a table with six rows and five columns.

Here's how to do it:

  • Select Insert from the toolbar.
  • Select Table .
  • Set the table dimensions.
  • Enter the topics in the top row.
  • Enter the scores in the remaining rows.

If the table doesn't appeal to you, use shapes to represent the topic and score. Select them by navigating to Insert > Shapes .

Make the answer/clue slide

In Jeopardy, the clue or answer comes first, followed by the question.

  • To add a new slide, click Slide and choose New slide . Alternatively, use the shortcut Ctrl + M .
  • Add your answer by clicking Insert > Text box .
  • Use the options from the toolbar to change the font style, size, and formatting.

You can add a home icon to return to the game board and a right arrow icon to navigate to the next slide. Use add-ons for a better selection. Here's how to include them in your presentation.

  • Click Extensions in the toolbar.
  • Select Add-ons .
  • Choose Get add-ons .
  • Type Icons for Slides & Docs .
  • Click Install .
  • From the toolbar, select Extensions .
  • Choose Icons for Slides & Docs and click Start .
  • Type home in the search bar and press Enter .
  • Choose a size and color.
  • Click Insert .
  • Repeat the same steps to insert the right arrow.

Create the question slide

Here's how to make the question slide:

  • Click Slide .
  • Select New slide .
  • Click Insert and choose Text box .
  • Type your question.
  • Add the home and right arrow icons at the top.

How to add transparency to an image in Google Slides

Connect each slide.

The final step is to connect each slide using hyperlinks. Here's how to connect the points on the game board slide with the corresponding clues:

  • Navigate to the game board (the first slide).
  • Select a table cell for one of the point categories.
  • Click Insert from the toolbar.
  • Scroll down and select Link .
  • Alternatively, right-click the selected text and choose Link from the drop-down menu.
  • Type the slide number and click the text below it.
  • Click Apply .
  • Repeat the same process for the remaining points, linking the scores for each category with the corresponding clue.

The remaining slides (clue and question) include the home and right-arrow icons at the top. Here's how to add links to them:

  • Click the home icon .
  • Choose First Slide .
  • Click the right arrow icon .
  • Click Insert and select Link .
  • Choose Next Slide .

After completing your question slide, copy it from the sidebar and paste it. Then, use it as a template for the remaining clues and questions. The template's home and right-arrow links are replicated, pointing toward the first and next slide, respectively. You don't need to repeat the hyperlinking process.

Copy a slide by selecting it and pressing Ctrl + C . Press Ctrl + V to paste ( Cmd + C and Cmd + V on a Mac).

Make your Google Slides presentations stand out with these tips

Follow the instructions above to make a fun Jeopardy game in Google Slides. These guidelines can also help you organize a fun trivia night for family gatherings. Spice up your presentations by adding audio clips , voiceovers, and other sound effects. If your slideshow looks bland, use these beautiful templates and add a creative spin. Use them for your work, business, or school assignments.

Releasing Windows 11, version 24H2 to the Release Preview Channel

  • Windows Insider Program Team

UPDATE 5/29: We’re aware that some Windows Insiders in Release Preview are not seeing Windows 11, version 24H2 offered yet. We’ve just begun the rollout and will gradually increase the rollout over time so not everyone will see it right away. If you are not seeing it yet and want to update to Windows 11, version 24H2 right away, you can do so by using the ISO which are available for download here . The ISO is Build 26100.560 but once you update using the ISO and join Release Preview, you’ll get Build 26100.712.

Hello Windows Insiders!

Today, we are making this year’s annual feature update Windows 11, version 24H2 (Build 26100.712) available in the Release Preview Channel for customers to preview ahead of general availability later this calendar year.

Windows 11, version 24H2* includes a range of new features such as the HDR background support, energy saver, Sudo for Windows , Rust in the Windows kernel, support for Wi-Fi 7, voice clarity and more. It also includes many improvements across Windows. For example, we are introducing a scrollable view of the quick settings flyout from the taskbar, the ability to create 7-zip and TAR archives in File Explorer (in addition to ZIP), and improvements for connecting Bluetooth® Low Energy Audio devices. We will be sharing more details in the coming months on many of the new features and improvements included as part of Windows 11, version 24H2 leading up to general availability. Please note that the new AI features such as Recall announced earlier this week will not be available on your PC after installing this update today as they require a Copilot+ PC. For more information on those new AI features and Copilot+ PCs, see this blog post here .

As part of this update, we’re also evolving the Copilot** experience on Windows as an app that will be pinned to the taskbar. This enables users to get the benefits of a traditional app experience, including the ability to resize, move, and snap the window – feedback we’ve heard from users throughout the preview of Copilot in Windows. This model also allows Microsoft to more agilely develop and optimize the experience based on user feedback. This change will be making is way to Insiders in the Canary, Dev, and Beta Channels shortly.

[ADDED 5/30] As part of the Copilot experience’s evolution on Windows to become an app that is pinned to the taskbar, we are retiring the WIN + C keyboard shortcut. For new devices that ship with a Copilot key , this key will open Copilot. For existing devices without that key, using the WIN + (number position for Copilot pinned to your taskbar) is a great way to open Copilot.

Windows 11, version 24H2 shown as available as an optional update highlighted in a red box.

Windows Insiders in the Release Preview Channel can install Windows 11, version 24H2 via our “seeker” experience in Windows Update. This means if you are an Insider currently in the Release Preview Channel on a PC that meets the Windows 11  hardware requirements , you can go to Settings and Windows Update and choose to download and install Windows 11, version 24H2 if you want. Once you update your PC to Windows 11, version 24H2, you will continue to automatically receive new servicing updates through Windows Update (the typical monthly update process). For instructions on how to join the Windows Insider Program and join your PC to the Release Preview Channel,  click here .

PLEASE NOTE: Windows Insiders in the Canary and Dev Channels will not be able to switch to the Release Preview Channel as they are on builds already based on Windows 11, version 24H2 but are on higher build numbers. These Insiders don’t need to switch. 

Commercial*** customers enrolled in the  Windows Insider Program for Business  can begin validating Windows 11, version 24H2 on PCs in their organizations. For these customers, the Windows 11, version 24H2 feature update is available through Windows Update for Business (WUfB) and Windows Server Update Service (WSUS). Azure Marketplace will be coming soon. You can learn more about deploying pre-release feature updates using  these deployment methods here . Should any issues arise, IT admins in organizations deploying Release Preview updates can request Microsoft Support .

And finally – ISOs are now available for download for Windows 11, version 24H2 via the Windows Insider ISO download page .

Thanks, Windows Insider Program Team

*Please note that Cortana, Tips, and WordPad are removed after upgrading to Windows 11, version 24H2. These apps are deprecated .

**Copilot in Windows is being rolled out gradually to Windows Insiders across our global markets. Customers in the European Economic Area will be able to download the Copilot in Windows experience as an app from the Microsoft Store (coming soon).

***We consider a device a commercial device if it is not running the Windows 11 Home edition AND is being managed by an IT administrator (whether via Microsoft Endpoint Manager or other management solution) or has a volume license key or commercial ID or is joined to a domain.
