You can do a presentation on Zoom. In this world of PowerPoint presentation software and complicated graphic programs, it is amazing that one little presentation tool, like the slide show, holds so much potential for presentation skills. If you have never done a presentation on PowerPoint before, you should really do a presentation on Zoom to check it out. I did and was surprised at just how effective it is and how easy it is to use.
To do a presentation on Zoom, first you need to download the latest version and install it. Then you want to find the “Zoom Tools” icon on your computer and click it. This will open up all of the different modules you can use within the presentation itself.
If you are going to do a presentation on Zoom, you may want to do a presentation on networking skills. This is especially important if you are going to give a speech or presentation at an upcoming scholarly conference or forum. If you do not know many people in the academic community, you may feel somewhat intimidated at the prospect of introducing yourself to several people in a relatively informal setting. It can be quite nerve wracking and hard to put across your ideas in a way that everyone can easily follow. You could try a slide show presentation using the zoom tools, which will take longer but let’s face it; the more people you can present to, the better.
One way to help presenters keep their audience engaged is to use zoom in presentation tools. PowerPoint automatically includes the presentation software within its presentation layout so you can just click on the presentation icon and then click “use zoom”. The presentation layout will then zoom in so that you can see individual slides and get a closer look at the information. If you are presenting to several members of a committee, you might want to zoom in on two people so that it is easier to identify and talk about various issues facing that committee. Zoom in on three or four people to get a broader perspective on the group.
If you have already written out your presentation and saved it to be watched later, then you may also want to preview the presentation to see how well it looks. To do this, go to the presentation and click on the “preview” link that is located next to your name at the top of the page. This will bring up a preview pane where you can see your presentation. You can use the arrow keys to scroll through the slides and play with the zoom and pan options in order to get a good idea of how the presentation looks. It is probably a good idea to use the mouse to scroll rather than the keyboard since you are not actually able to touch any of the slides. You will probably be distracted too much by the layout of the presentation to really read the content anyway.
You will find yourself gravitating to the section on “Net Control,” especially since this is the most important part of the course. This is where you will learn about the different strategies that are used to disrupt and subdue threats posed by other companies or individuals that might be using or seeking advantage through public service demonstrations. One of the best ways to use the skills you will learn in this section is to prepare for presentations on public service events in which you are the principal or a key actor. You might need to memorize a few lines or prepare to deliver a speech to a live audience, but this should help you keep the skills sharp.
The last thing that you should do before you attempt a presentation on Zoom is to familiarize yourself with the terms used in Kaffeine, OOCA Website, and Open Source Project. These are just some of the common terms used within the world of Open Source. You might find it useful to go online and familiarize yourself with the terminology. This should help you learn more about the software and if you have any questions, you can contact Kaffeine support or OOCA website.
In conclusion, a presentation on Zoom can be fun and informative. Just make sure that you prepare yourself adequately by learning about the software and terms used in the presentation. Then go out and practice your skills on a real time field day, or even on an OOCA meeting. You will have fun if you do well and will leave with a valuable understanding of Open Source software and how it works. Now that you know the basics, what are you waiting for?
