Like a lot of you, we now have a ton of zoom conferences and infrequently I’m tasked with presenting data or coaching classes. My preliminary inclination was to construct one thing in PowerPoint or Google slides, however I switched to Rise 360 and haven’t appeared again.
I discover that regardless that Rise 360 is designed to be extra of a conventional e-learning course authoring device, it actually does lend itself as a fantastic presentation device.
Let me inform you how I’m utilizing it and why.
Creating the presentation in Rise 360 is simply as quick as making a slide.
With Rise 360, I spend much less time establishing the format as a result of I’m not beginning with an empty slide. Nevertheless, I can nonetheless make one thing that’s visually interesting, chunked into distinct sections, and nonetheless management what’s on the display screen and when.
Within the instance above you may see how simple it’s so as to add all kinds of presentation content material resembling textual content, media, and interactivity.
Chunking content material is simple and might be artistic.
I like to make use of to make use of the Proceed Divider block to chunk the content material just like how I’ll have it in a PowerPoint slide. After which to advance my presentation, I click on the divider to disclose extra.
Additionally, I’ll convert what ought to have been bullet factors to easy interactions just like the the accordion or tabs. This enables me to maintain folks targeted on what we’re discussing. The flashcard block is an effective way to speak by issues, ask a query, after which reveal content material when clicked.
Increase the presentation with embedded content material.
Embedding content material from different sources could make the reside presentation extra participating or add further functionality. For instance, typically in our conversations, I current a timed exercise.
That is the place I take advantage of the embed block in Rise 360 and add a timer from vclock utilizing their embed code. You may also embed maps and all kinds of additional media utilizing that block. Mainly, if yow will discover it on-line you may add it to your presentation.
Skipping pointless content material is tremendous simple.
Usually throughout the displays I discover the attendees have already got a great grasp of the data. In these circumstances I wish to skip to one thing else. That’s the place the sidebar menu turns out to be useful the place I can bounce to particular content material that I’ve chunked into classes.
Protecting the sidebar seen is an effective way to let the folks know the place we’re at and the place we’re going. So typically I hold it open. But it surely’s simple sufficient to break down the sidebar and solely present it when I’ve to.
The course works properly as a leave-behind useful resource.
One among my favourite issues is that I can simply share the presentation as is. I don’t want to avoid wasting a PDF of slides or e-mail them a duplicate of my PPT presentation.
I publish the Rise 360 presentation to Evaluate 360 after which present the group with the evaluate hyperlink. For instance, right here’s a presentation that I created for the weblog that you may entry now.
Preserve the dialog going.
An additional benefit to utilizing Evaluate 360 is that for the reason that Rise 360 presentation is printed to Evaluate 360 the attendees can depart feedback. That is actually nice if we run out of time throughout an exercise or dialogue. We will proceed to dialog within the printed presentation.
Try it out. Go to the demo presentation and submit a remark.
Preserve the content material up to date.
I can all the time make updates to the presentation after which republish the brand new Rise 360 presentation over the outdated model figuring out that everybody can have the identical up to date content material. That is actually necessary for issues like gross sales coaching and displays the place the content material is up to date and adjustments typically.
