Have you ever had to present a topic (maybe very boring) in front of your colleagues or classmates? I bet that many of them talking to you did their business, and how to pity them … the topic you had to present was boring! However I do not think this could be an excuse, you’ve probably limited yourself to exposing your topic without creativity, without first trying to think about how to present it by attracting the public’s attention. In this case it would be very useful to know how to create videos and presentations to be able to fascinate your audience.
If, reflecting a bit, you have noticed that the situation presented so far reflects several of your meetings, lessons or presentations, do not despair … if you continue reading you will find a free online tool that will allow you to revolutionize your presentations and with this program to create free slideshows you can hit your audience. Now I’m talk about PowToon, a free tool that will allow you to create videos and presentations in a few minutes and that will certainly attract the attention of your audience, who will wonder how did you create certain effects, sometimes diverting attention from the boringness of the topic that you are presenting.
PowToon is a free tool to create online slideshows and videos that you can use in your business or hobby, by going to this link: PowToon. To introduce you to the site I’m introducing to you, I’ve included the official video presentation:
The guide to create videos and presentations online
Well, now that you have a little understanding of what this tool is capable of, start with the description to create videos and presentations with this interesting tool. Obviously, to use it, registration is required, which can be done after clicking on Start Now. You will then open a screen where you must enter your personal details, then click on SIGN ME UP. You will then start a tutorial in which you are presented the basic functions, very useful. At the end of the tutorial, you can choose to create a new presentation from scratch ( START A NEW POWTOON ) or customize a template provided by the site itself ( CUSTOMIZE ONE OF our many awesome templates ). As a first time, I suggest you choose the second option.
Once you have chosen the most suitable template for your needs, you are ready to adapt it to the issues you need to deal with by clicking on Edit. Then follow the directions provided by the site and customize the slides as you like, looking at how they make clicking on Play (preview).
Once the editing phase is finished, it is time to prepare to present it. PowToon offers the possibility, even if you are not registered with a premium account, to upload your own PowToon presentations on Youtube. In my opinion, this is the fastest way to make your presentation/video portable and visible on any device and on any occasion. To upload the video on Youtube you will obviously need a Google account.
I hope this free tool to create online presentations will be useful, in case of doubts or suggestions do not hesitate to comment!
