What did presenters do before there were PowerPoint or computers? They put in a lot more work on their presentations, that’s for sure. Now that there are computers and software, creativity is enhanced and time can be spent on content creation.
Here are some software solutions for your next presentation.
What Is There beyond PowerPoint?
When asked about slides, one used to think of little cardboard squares with printed film in the middle that were loaded into a round projector reel and placed on top of a projector. This was the way that slides were presented on screen. But, most people now don’t know about such early technology (primitive sounds way too old).
The mainstay as far as present-day slide presentation has always been PowerPoint in the Microsoft Office suite. It’s like having a slide projector on your laptop. You can switch slides, edit them, create a timed slideshow and more. Presenters the world over have used it for years. And, it works.
However, with technology making so many advances and consumers being able to partake of it, the audiences want more – and so do the ones crafting the presentations. While PowerPoint is still a standard, there are other software programs that can do the job in unique and interesting ways. Even though visual aids are there to do just that – “aid” a presentation – there is nothing wrong with taking the tech to the next level.
