Presentation Technology – horses for courses

15 07 2010

The questionnaire has provided some really useful information already (for more about the survey…)

Andrew Worth, Learning Design Advisor at the School of Services Management, Bournemouth University, has given me permission to quote the following:

“…it is really starting to get down to horses for courses, who is the audience, what is the message, and will the tool get in the way of the message.”

Andrew uses PowerPoint for quick and short, or business presentations but he also uses non-linear software such as MindManager (see post about MindManager here…). Andrew mentioned colleagues presenting using stand alone video, podcasts, blogs, wikis, Flickr, Picasa, Google Maps and so on. This echoes data I have received from interviews and other questionnaire respondents.
