Experience from in-class project

The short group project that we did in class on Wednesday wasn’t easy because the time was limited. So we had to decide really fast what the best ideas we should include in that presentation. But overall it was really great exercise because we used new presentation software called Prezi. We chose Prezi because it looks better to us and we think that the display layouts that are available for the presentation are very interesting and there are many different options from which users can choose. For me Prezi is more professional and advanced than the PowerPoint.

College by The Numbers Presentation Experience

The presentation exercise in class was very interesting. The process of putting the presentation together based on our room for debate topics was a fairly difficult task. Our group had difficulties choosing tittles for the frames of our prezi presentation. Another area in which we ran into trouble was acquiring visuals that related to our topic or represented ideas in of our topic. We also had a hard time deciding if we would include more pictures then writing or more writing then pictures. Overall putting the presentation together in the short amount of time we had was very hard.

In-class Prezi

With the in-class assignment, our only problem was the time constraint. Gaining a firm grasp of the material and planning consumed the majority of our time. But after we discussed how we’d present it, we knew exactly what the Prezi tiles would include. One thing that served as a very minor drawback was that our originally assigned 3rd group member didn’t make it to class. However, our new member was completely up-to-speed in under 10mins. We found it easy to present our views mostly because we could agree with the material of some of the articles we discussed. Half of them were pro-manufacturing and combatted the very issues that the antagonists brought up. Another aspect that made the process fairly simple was the plethora of available visuals for our topic – the U.S. manufacturing tech. We gathered a few pictures, but just didn’t have the time to put it all together the way we had planned.

Prezi experience

After working with Prezi on Wednesday, i learned something new from which i am really happy, and i feel like this will be something that, i will use in the future. We didn’t really had much time to prepare our presentation, so everything was in chaos, thinking about what to write about, choosing our theme from Prezi, and learning it from begging. We chose it over the other presentation, because it looks better, and in my opinion if it is used correctly it can make audience more interested in presentation.

In-Class Group Project Experience (PREZI)

Today in class, each group was assigned to work on a presentation within a small amount of time. As a member of my group working on “College Rankings” topic, I did enjoy the experience while giving my participation to the work that had to be done.

As we worked on the presentation, by using Prezi, we found some difficulties. Many of us are basically used to Power Point. A short tutorial was shown in class, but it was not enough for us to start using Prezi right away.  We still had to learn more about some details from it since it is new to us. We had to figure out how to use some basic features that could take us few seconds to achieve if we were using Power Point. Fitzpatrick and I spent more then 5 minutes figure out how to make a sentence in bold, center it then make it in a bigger font. We finally left it in a very simple way and moved on since the time was very short.  As a result, must of us did not finish what we started to work on.

From this small presentation, even though the groups did not get to the ending point as planned, I still learned a lot of things. This experience made this morning, on a simple presentation, makes me feel the pressure that even professionals are experiencing when working in-group or individually in a very small amount of time. Few examples would be the people who work as movie crews, also those working in television or radio stations. This experience was very worth and interesting to me and also  helped me understand how difficult things-that may appear to be easy for some people –are.

Prezi Presentation

Even though I joined the team late and had to rush to get up to speed I think we had did a good job coming to term. We all easily agreed on the same point which was that technology manufacturing should be brought to U.S soil. We also all had a pretty good idea of what were supposed to discuss since we divided the work evenly. Once we started working on Prezi we had some minor issues. We were all used to working with power-point so we had to try had to not just put all the information into the slides. We also didn’t have enough time to implement visual aids; even though we looked some up. With some more time I think we can make a pretty good presentation using Prezi; it really helps deliver information in a way that keep the audiences’ attention.

Experience from Presentation

Some of the good things about using prezi were that it was simple, makes the presentation more interesting and you can use a lot of things in the presentation such as; pictures, videos, graphs, etc..

Even though prezi is simple to use, there are so many things that we can do, that it will take a lot of time to make a decent presentation. Other than that, everything else was really good. I have just one question; In one of the tutorial videos that were shown in class today, the guy presenting didn’t speak through the whole presentation, instead he put up a song. The tutorial was still good and it was very effective, so the question is; Are we going to be allow to do one of this presentations?

Prezi Experience

Using Prezi for the presentation in class was a pretty interesting experience, especially with the little time we were given. After watching the tutorial, I thought it was clear on how to use it but I wasn’t even close. There was a lot to it and parts that weren’t too clear, like how to bold text or get them into a certain font. I spent a lot of time trying to figure out where things were located.
Another big deal was the time limit we were given. Since it was the first time I used Prezi, first I had to worry about how it really works, then I had to make sure it wasn’t like a power-point. That was the fun of it and I believe I could have come up with really interesting designs if only there was more time.
