The course focuses on preparing and learning three forms of presentations - computer presentation, poster presentation and static web presentation. Each of these forms has different requirements for content and graphics processing and requires a different methodological and conceptual approach to their preparation and presentation. Therefore the course introduces students to both the methodology and techniques of preparing computer presentations (based on templates) and posters in program MS PowerPont 2007+, and with all aspects of preparation of static web pages (hypertext documents), of which the content and design students create using XHTML and CSS languages. The course also provides space for practicing of presenting of computer presentations in accordance with general principles and rules of verbal and nonverbal communication.

Each student works on his own computer at the same time regularly alternates with with other students at the teacher's computer and actively participates in the preparation of the specification in discussion with others. In the exercises, students learn to work with off-line and on-line resources, an interactive presentation table and a presenter, and to analyse case studies as well.
