Overview of Types of Training Media

Overhead Projectors

An overhead projector is used to project material from a book or a prepared transparency onto a screen. When using transparencies, remember:

  • Do not use more than four or five words per line.
  • Do not crowd too many lines onto one transparency.
  • Design transparencies so that they can be read from the back row of the training room.
  • Use dark letters on light backgrounds.

When using overhead projectors, remember:

  • Place a transparency on the projector before the training in order to focus it.
  • Always have a spare light bulb and extension cord with you.
  • Designate someone to control the room lights.
