Choose a suitable format

There are many different ways for you to present information. Formats can vary from written essays, reports and talks to a range of multimedia, such as PowerPoint presentations, podcasts etc.

Your assignment question generally will include information about the format that your lecturer requires. If you are unsure of the format, check with your lecturer before you start researching.

Your assignment will also give you clues as to the amount of detail you need to provide. For example:

Write a 500 word essay …..

Submit a 1,000 word report ...

PowerPoint presentation on ……

Give a 5 minute oral presentation on …

Read your assignment carefully for instructions on how you need to present your work.
