Presentation Guidelines

Jump to: navigation, search

At about the 4th week of the semester, your group will be asked to make a presentation to the class regarding your project. The presentation is to be no more than 5 or 6 minutes and the group should expect to take questions from the class when finished. The presentation should include the following:

  • Introduction: Title page with names of group members
  • What is this?: Explain in simple terms what the project goals are, think a few sentences followed by bullet points illustrating features.
  • Why do we care?: Explain the motivation for this project, why is it a good project or something you want to do?
  • Technologies you plan to use: What do you need and how are you going to get this done?
  • Challenges you expect to face: What do you see as the main hurdles you have to face to complete this project?
  • Other things to consider: You may want to include a budget, abreviated timeline to completion, a list of useful resources or other items you feel are relevant.


  • Again, remember this is a short presentation.

  • Prepare your presentation early enough so that you can get feedback on it from your TA and the instructor BEFORE you give it.

  • Think of this as an "elevator pitch" to someone justifying what you want to do. Explain simply what this is, why we care and we want to be confident that you have thought it through clearly enough so that we feel that you are capable of pulling it off.
