5 Creative Uses Of PowerPoint Presentations You Haven’t Explored Yet

5 Creative Uses Of PowerPoint Presentations You Haven’t Explored Yet | Visual Design and Presentation in Higher Edcuation | Scoop.it

Death by PowerPoint is a popular term. It’s unfair that PowerPoint gets the stick as there are more than a few presentation tools around. As anyone who has taken the pains to make a memorable PowerPoint presentation will tell you – the secret of the steak is in the sizzle. The sizzle also comes and stops at creativity. If you have creativity by your side, you can use PowerPoint as your canvas.

5 Creative Uses Of PowerPoint Presentations 

Karen Ford's curator insight, November 4, 2013 12:53 PM

I think "death by PowerPoint" is used so often because so many users have not "taken the pains to make a memorable..." presentation and the concept of creativity might not have even been considered. Not totally sure what the answer is, but I do believe that if more individuals could have their eyes opened to the potential that PowerPoint has, we might be able to get passed the "death" issue. That means we have to get the great ideas to the teachers and  their students... not just telling them, but perhaps showing them...

Free HTML5 Online Animation Maker, Banner Maker and Video Maker | Animatron

Free HTML5 Online Animation Maker, Banner Maker and Video Maker | Animatron | Visual Design and Presentation in Higher Edcuation | Scoop.it

"Papa, can you help me create an animation for my school project?" asked my 10-year-old daughter. “Sure,” I said. “Let's see what software your teacher suggested you use.” 


 The software that my daughter’s teacher suggested turned out to be an ad-cluttered website that combined several images into an animated GIF. Not exactly the best tool for learning and creating real animation ... That's how the idea for Animatron was born: a powerful and user-friendly website that allows you to animate right in your browser and collaborate with your friends or colleagues in real time. JetBrains (a company that makes the world’s best developer tools!) liked the idea so much that they funded the project and supported us in many other ways! 


 Now, a few years later, Animatron has grown into a company of 15 awesome people working hard on redefining the world of animation software by building an entirely new way to create animated and interactive content for the modern web.

Research Guides: How to Create a Research Poster: Poster Basics

Posters are widely used in the academic community, and most conferences include poster presentations in their program.  Research posters summarize information or research concisely and attractively to help publicize it and generate discussion. 

The poster is usually a mixture of a brief text mixed with tables, graphs, pictures, and other presentation formats. At a conference, the researcher stands by the poster display while other participants can come and view the presentation and interact with the author.

We process information through our senses. The data you receive from the world - the electronic music from the coffee shop speakers, the smooth feel of the ceramic mug in your hands, the taste and scent of your black coffee and the sight of the person seated across from you - is processed in a way that feels instantaneous and seamless.


In reality, every sensory detail arrives at a different rate, and your brain stitches them together. And most of the information comes through your eyes.
