A Simple Guide On How To Present Effectively in Public: Speaking.io

A Simple Guide On How To Present Effectively in Public: Speaking.io | Presentation Tools | Scoop.it
Robin Good's insight:



Speaking.io is a free web guide to how to present effectively in public curated by @Zach Holman, a subject matter expert, having spoken at a large number of conferences.


The Guide is elegantly organized in multiple sections, each containing a small set of more specific information chapters, and  all accessible from the home page index. 



Good resource for novice public speakers and presenters, as well as another great example of content curation at work. In this case the author has curated his know-how, notes and previous writings into one cohesive and well present gallery.


Helpful. Well designed. 8/10

A very nice summary of all the points you need to think about when preparing a conference presentation. "Because “imagine everyone's naked” is terrible advice."

Engage Your Live Audience With an Interactive Slideshow: Slides & Polls (Mac) | Presentation Tools | Scoop.it

Robin Good: If you are looking for an innovative Mac app that allows you to fully engage and wow your audience in your public presentation, you should give a look to Slides & Polls by Screen.io.


This new app turns a regular slideshow into an interactive online session that can be easily shared to all of your participants screens (computers and mobile devices).


Key features include the ability to add interactive polls and show the results with live updates, or to open a discussion channel so that your audience can talk back during the presentation – fully controlled by you, of course.


How does it work? You prepare your slides in the app of your choice (e.g. PowerPoint or Keynote) and then you import them into Slides & Polls while adding interactive elements.


"Participation happens on the web. Anyone in your audience can join in by opening her smartphone or laptop and going to the presentation’s website. From there on, you decide what’s shown on their screens. It can be slides, text, links, polls, questions…"


Key Features:

• Each presentation gets a web address
• Presenter’ screen with full control
• Unique Practice Mode with simulated participants
• Automatic session archiving

• Import slides from PowerPoint, Keynote, etc.
• Import picture and movie files
• Create editable slides
• Add live polls and results

• Live web content: audience will see your slides on their smartphone screens
• Attach special interactive content to slides that’s visible on the web (Slide Notes)
• Co-Channel: a discussion forum for your audience where you call the shots
• Show co-channel on projector screen and/or on the web, switchable any time
• Highlight and moderate co-channel messages

• Unique web address for your presentation,
for example: www.screen.io/yourname

Not only. By leveraging this type of approach HelloSlide can make your presentation available in over 20 languages instantly and by providing a full text transcript with the presentation there may be also some SEO benefits, as search engines can tell now precisely what you are talking about in those slides.


The free plan allows about to 50 presentations.

The collection includes presentation tools, resources for finding music, clipart and images as well as services that allow you to add video, converto to other formats (PDF, video) and to deliver your presentations in all types of events and to all types of devices.
