Default What is an "interactive" powerpoint presentation?

I have been asked to create an interactive PPT lesson plan (I am a
teacher)presentation with website links. I know how to put links into a
powerpoint, but I am not sure what they mean by interactive other than
someone clicks on the links and the sites come up. Is there more to an
"interactive" presentation than that?

My interpretaion (and thats all it is!) is one with links and triggered
animation so that the user selects a non linear path through the presentation
istead of just clicking. You could ask whoever asked what THEY mean by
interactive.

"Interactive" to me means the audience gets to interact with the
presentation and can control how it goes. As John mentioned, hyperlinking
around your presentation does that. However, if you want some games and/or
CBT samples, check out the two links below for some free downloads. Make
sure you read the bold text next to the image to set your macro security.

I'll speak "authoritatively" as someone who has assigned such things.
Generally, I give more specifics in the assignment, but I generally mean
to include hyperlinks to other slides and possibly to other documents and
Web pages. The idea is to avoid the linear movement from one slide to the
next to the next. This could be for a presenter who might have several
options to follow or for users to sit down in front of the computer to
navigate themselves. I usually show my students a simple presentation
with a title slide and a menu slide. The menu has links to other slides
in the presentation and each of those slides links back to the menu. This
is probably the simplest form of interactive presentation, but MUCH more
is possible.

why not try an interactive presentation may combine with quizzes. no
matter real-time quizzes or summarizing quizzes would boost your
presentation as an engaging courseware. quizzes can help reviewing
knowledge, and solidifying your instruction. you could make amazing
interactive flash quizzes with Macrosoft flash to incorporate with the
presentation, but it requires programming expertise. a quiz tool would
help you much.

try Wondershare QuizCreator, it will give you aid for making off the
drudgery. this little pretty helped me to make my own little quiz (for
christmas amusing) with only four steps, choose the question type(8
types), enter the question, give the choices, and mark the correct
answer. after all I published the quiz to my presentation, and shared
it with my family and friends! we enjoyed it so much! you could also
make your own one.

besides, create the presentation in flash format would be more
convenient for interaction. the company has another solution for this
issue. if you are interested, you can visit: http://www.sameshow.com,
for more details.

hope my answer is helpful.


best wishes

There are two aspects to understand the connotative meaning of
Interactive

1. The presentation content is interactive

That means tha presentation is not text-only. Multi media are well
integrated into the textual content for effective information delivery
..
Adding video/flash/pictures/audio as the interactivity is a good way
to make a interactive presentation.

2. The learning process of the presentation is Interactive

When a viewer plays the prensentation, he/she will not be forced to
take in the infomation without any interaction with the presentation.
Instead, he/she learns the presentation through a interaction
process.

For example, you can use some interactive modules in the presentation
to explain and stimulate rather than text description.

Also adding a quiz to a presentation for viewers works to enhance
his/her learning through interaction . Ask he/she to take a quiz and
you can mesure their learning progress.


These understandings of Interactive quizzes root form my presentation
expenrience and hope it helps.

Interactive can mean so many different things but for lesson plans, it's a great idea to provide students with material that they can interact with in a way that provides them with the ability to navigate a presenation in a non-linear manner.

You can of course manually add hyperlinks from one slide to another (or many others) in PowerPoint. But if you want to create a non-linear presentation with a tree or hierarchical structure, it can be very time consuming to do this manually, especially when you start having more than 10 slides since the number of links you need to manage is an exponential function of the number of slides.

One alternative is to use an add-in such as ActivePresentation Designer (available at http://www.activepresentation.com) to create the tree structure and links across the slides in your presentation. This adds a multi-levelled interactive non-linear menu bar (like a Web site) to the top or bottom of your slides and you can click on the items in the menu bar to jump to various slides in your presentation.
