The Edmodo Classroom team wishes to take a moment to introduce themselves and look forward. Let us imagine what presentations would look like in 2020 as a random starting point. We must say that AI did not rise up against humanity, that an asteroid did not hit the earth and that we managed to avoid any natural or man-made disasters.
In all this, three forecasts for the future of the presentation are here:
1. Augmented Reality/AR: Perceive life through a new lens
In potential presentations and applications we use to deliver them, we cannot imagine that Augmented Reality (AR) is going to play a major role. AR puts digital images on what you see in real-time. It's going to capture and attract people more than conventional modes of presentation (think Snapchat's world lens).
Picture an audience going to an auditorium and listening to a presentation called "Accessible State and Clean Water in 2020," which will not confine the audience to slide with complicated maps, detailed statistics and striking imagery. Vibrant, animated charts can cover large parts of the stage or area. The speaker can view or restore a water reservoir over time slowly or expand a bacteria close-up to make it clear for everyone in the audience.
Almost every advice you can imagine the presenter will be available. A 3D map will show the average rainfall in remote areas of the Gobi desert. Only put: Data is going to be much easier to access.
Edmodo Classroom team is already heading into the direction of AR because we can foresee its potential in tomorrow’s scenarios. Dr Robert Sapolsky in one of his lectures entitled "BEHAVE: the physiology of human beings at our best and our worst" in Vancouver.
2. Virtual Reality/VR: Bringing a whole new perspective to the world
Unlike AR, augmented reality completely shifts, practically forming a virtual world. You won't have to be on stage for presentations with VR, you can easily take part in your own office.
Online meetings and workshops are actually not the most successful. A meeting with just over five persons will quickly plunge into the uncomfortable moments of people jinxing with, "Oh ... so ... no, you are going ahead." On the other hand, VR meetings, with participants portrayed by virtual Avatar representatives sitting at a single table, should be held in virtual meeting halls (or the moon!).
Range and room constraints should be excluded from VR presentations. And it's not just small gatherings that can help VR. It is easy to turn into big crowds with fine features, including having members of the audience ask questions in real-time or other interactions.
3. Interactive presentations would enjoy being shared more
VR submissions are ideal for sharing. Since digital technology is becoming more open to AR and VR content, detailed and immersive presentations are more commonly downloaded and easily viewed. This could be a boost for training in virtually all fields, as immersive learning can be accessed anywhere. You should expect a lot of people to take care of these fresh, enticing presentation channels from CEO messages to Corporate Security Training presentations.
Shared displays in VR and AR will also bring rapid advances in design styles and techniques as delivery levels increase. The door is open for people to play with new components, styles and configurations of the presentation. If there are new concepts, they can almost immediately be copied and iterated. There are almost infinite possibilities.
4. Images would replace text: Getting more attention with infographics
It is obvious that without text a presentation cannot be designed entirely. Modern presentations, however, are becoming more and more textless. The quality of the picture is replaced. Above all, icons make sure the listener knows all without reading. Therefore, instead of using classical diagrams, infographics are in the pattern. Infographics make it easy to express information with a significant amount of detail. Most text can be saved with the aid of icons, pictures and lines. Follow this PowerPoint pattern and you can see that even as you express meanings and statistics, the audience will not lose focus.
Edmodo Classroom gives you the ability to incorporate icons directly into your presentation from an internal template library. By the way, a straightforward data graph can be drawn in no time from your boring diagram.
New features are added and presentation opportunities are steadily increasing with each new PowerPoint version. Presentations can become a barrier in real-time.
Do you believe these projections are a precise image of the future, or do you think the future will hold it 2D?
