The most important thing in every presentation is to have your audience. But careful consideration will start earlier than you might think — with the tool you choose to discuss them.
There are a huge array of ways to get the message across, from a long-form paper to a keynote presentation or the two's combination we call a Slidedoc.
In our experience Edmodo Classroom works best with the following messages:
-Aren’t too heavy on text.
-Should be easily shared.
-Should be easy to navigate.
-Need to portray parts of a whole.
-Require scale proofing.
1. NOT TOO HEAVY ON TEXT:
Edmodo Classroom offers an infinitely large canvas which makes filling it up tempting. But just because you've got the space it doesn't mean you 're supposed to cram into everything. It's in fact quite the opposite. All that room allows you the freedom to split your content into easily digestible pieces — especially if you are making a traditional presentation rather than a Slidedoc one. Your audience should be able to take a look at the frame and grasp the concept within 3 seconds.
Plus, the more text you have in your Edmodo Classroom, the more you need to zoom in — eliminating visual reference points for the audience. All the examples we've shared work because they've exercised discipline, given the large playground, only giving the audience the details they need.
2. TO PORTRAY PARTS OF A WHOLE:
Comprehending an object or concept in the context of the larger picture is much clearer. How do parts of a network communicate with each other, for example? Where does a team-work in the organisation? Was there a trend between one data set and the next?
Edmodo Classroom can be a great tool to show the relationships that exist between parts and the whole. In a wider world, you can actually dig deeper into various topics because of the opportunity to zoom in and retract. This presentation works well because a realistic canvas orients the audience — but it never goes too deep. The audience is aware of the larger world in the presentation, which makes the movements meaningful and predictable.
3. EASILY SHARED:
Presentations do not exist in a vacuum – messages are arriving before, after, and after that to help the audience understand the concept and take action. Especially with communication before and after the presentation, it's handy to be able to send links to your audience so they can easily access your content.
Although Edmodo Classroom is downloaded PC based product, files can be exchanged with only one connection, minimizing file size and version control problems. You can quickly update your file globally at any time, or disable permissions. You can share links of your presentations across social media channels and is designed for optimum online learning scenarios. Finally, you can also use Edmodo Classroom to transfer images from your mobile device directly onto the screen.
4. EAST TO NAVIGATE:
The reason presentations are so powerful is because they are an opportunity for you to connect with your audience in a meaningful way. You need to make sure your audience has enough knowledge to grasp the message without you there to direct them. We call that mash-up a "Slidedoc" between a presentation and a document.
Edmodo Classroom is a great container for a presentation in Slidedoc style which gives your audience a large canvas of information that they can easily explore at their own pace. Edmodo Classroom does a great job informing the audience without overwhelming them. Apart from this, it is packed with education industry’s best Subject Tools and high-quality 3D resources which can help teachers reform their methods and tools to deliver online learning sessions.
5. SCALE PROOFING:
Often the public needs a little support in recognizing a concept's true effect. It can be hard, for example, to understand the gravity of a number that is unfathomably high — exactly how much is a trillion? Alternatively, an unimpressive statistic may gain new gravitas as compared to another. If you mentioned that you have 7 percent of your market share, for example, that would not sound very impressive. But if you prove your rivals have only 1 per cent, we 're talking now.
Edmodo Classroom is great at displaying scale – especially massive scale. Its infinite-depth makes the connection between objects a great canvas to display. This reminds us of the famous Powers of Ten™ video. It works because, throughout the presentation, the audience has a single point of reference and every bit of motion is essential to the meaning.
Finally remember, the capacity of every presentation software is for good and evil. Make your decision carefully based on what's best for the audience.
