What Will You Remember? Help Find the Cure for PowerPoint Amnesia.

Dr. Carmen Taran of Rexi Media wants YOU to take a part in her new study where she searches for the answer to this simple question:

How many slides do people remember from a PowerPoint presentation after 48 hours? 

What do you think: 3, 4 slides? Maybe more? This empirical study implies 5 minutes of your time to watch a 20-slide PowerPoint deck. Then in two days, Dr. Taran will ask what you remember via a 1-question online form. That’s it. She will post her findings on our Billion Dollar Graphics blog, which will translate into practical guidelines on how to create more memorable PowerPoint presentations. You will also be able to download the slides you view.

Help the world create better PowerPoint presentations and cure slide amnesia. Five minutes is all it takes to make a difference—and learn the secrets to more memorable presentations.

Deadline is November 10th.
