# Beamer layout for half page presentation

is there a specific beamer layout for producing slides mostly on the left handisde (except for title) in order to make handwritten annotations with a tablet (e.g. math derivations and so forth) on the right hand-side during lectures?

To free up space on the right hand site, you could place your frame content in a column environment.

\documentclass{beamer}

\usepackage{lipsum}

\begin{document}

\begin{frame}
\begin{columns}[onlytextwidth]
\begin{column}{.6\textwidth}
\lipsum[2]
\end{column}
\end{columns}
\end{frame}

\end{document}
