I discover that regardless that Rise 360 is designed to be extra of a conventional e-learning course, it actually does lend itself as an incredible presentation device.
Let me let you know how I’m utilizing it and why.
Creating the presentation in Rise 360 is simply as quick as making a slide.
With Rise 360, I spend much less time setting up the structure as a result of I’m not beginning with an empty slide. Nevertheless, I can nonetheless make one thing that’s visually interesting, chunked into distinct sections, and nonetheless management what’s on the display screen and when.
Within the instance above you’ll be able to see how straightforward it’s so as to add all kinds of presentation content material similar to textual content, media, and interactivity.
Chunking content material is straightforward and could be artistic.
I like to make use of to make use of the Proceed Divider block to chunk the content material much like how I’ll have it in a PowerPoint slide. After which to advance my presentation, I click on the divider to disclose extra.
Additionally, I’ll convert what ought to have been bullet factors to easy interactions just like the the accordion or tabs. This enables me to maintain folks targeted on what we’re discussing.

Skipping pointless content material is tremendous straightforward.
Typically throughout the displays I discover the attendees have already got a superb grasp of the data. In these instances I prefer to skip to one thing else. That’s the place the sidebar menu is useful the place I can leap to particular content material that I’ve chunked into classes.
Retaining the sidebar seen is a good way to let the folks know the place we’re at and the place we’re going. So generally I preserve it open. Nevertheless it’s straightforward sufficient to break down the sidebar and solely present it when I’ve to.
The course works properly as a leave-behind useful resource.
One among my favourite issues is that I can simply share the presentation as is. I don’t want to save lots of a PDF of slides or e-mail them a duplicate of my PPT presentation.
I publish the Rise 360 presentation to Evaluation 360 after which present the group with the evaluate hyperlink. For instance, right here’s a presentation that I created for the weblog which you can entry now.
