What is an interactive presentation?

An interactive presentation is a presentation format that encourages active participation from the audience through interactive elements such as quizzes, polls, and simulations.

Unlike traditional presentations, interactive presentations aim to create an exchange between the presenter and the audience.

By enhancing engagement and information retention through a playful and interactive presentation with attractive visual support, the speaker adds real value to their presentation.

What are the benefits of interactive presentations?

When it comes to giving a presentation, the goal is to convey a message, ideas, to persuade, and to obtain feedback.

To do this, you must capture and maintain your audience's interest throughout the presentation. And that's where interactivity and presentation quality play an essential role.

Animated and attractive presentations keep your audience in an active listening mode, which significantly increases the attention of the targeted audience and the retention of information.

Lastly, engaging interactive presentations make it easier to obtain feedback from participants.

How to create interactive presentations?

To execute original and interactive presentations that you will deliver in person in front of your audience, your main task will consist of planning phases of interaction with your audience in your presentation. To design an effective presentation, you must structure it, include quizzes, ask open‑ended questions, present surveys, and various types of dynamic presentation tools.

But how do you create interactive presentations when you want to distribute them asynchronously?

Simply sending presentations in slide format will not be very effective. You must use tools to humanize your presentations, adding quizzes, infographics, and interactive elements to collect feedback from your audience.
