What's inside the toolkit?

Online presentations are an excellent way to share knowledge from anywhere with a broad audience. Online presentations allow you as the presenter to speak from the comfort of your home or anywhere in the world and allow the audience to chime in from wherever they are. However, online presentations can be tricky, as you must learn to navigate videoconferencing software and balance keeping your audience engaged.

  • Examples of Poll Everywhere Activities to try at your next online presentation.
  • Tips on how to seamlessly integrate activities into your workflow.

Frequently Asked Questions

What are the best practices for online presentations?

Managing an online presentation doesn’t have to be complicated with the proper preparation. Here are a few things you must consider as the virtual presenter: 

  • Set expectations: Is this a cameras-on meeting or a one-way presentation? If attendees are expected to participate, give them an advanced notice. 
  • Check your software: Whether you are meeting via Zoom, Webex, or any video conferencing software, double-check that the app is up to date and everything is working correctly. 
  • Give people time to join: It often takes 1-3 minutes to join an online presentation, especially if they come from another meeting. Set a time at the beginning of the meeting to allow people to trickle in. 
  • Record the presentation: For those who can’t attend the meeting or for record-keeping purposes, make sure to record the presentation. It is best practice to also give your participants a heads-up before recording. 
  • Engage your attendees: Remote attendees are often tempted to multi-task or disengage with the presentation, so incorporating interactive elements like a Poll Everywhere Activity will maintain your audience’s attention. 
  • Share the presentation: After the online presentation, follow up with your attendees by sharing the recording and the presentation slides. This allows attendees to digest the information further and ask any follow-up questions.

What are the best online presentation tools?

Popular online presentation tools like PowerPoint, Keynote, and Google Slides are often the top choice for organizations.
