RealShow: A New Way for Producing and Communicating Virtual Conference Presentations Alaa Sadik, Sultan Qaboos University (OMAN) Khadeja Badr, South Valley University (EGYPT)
Introduction Virtual presentations are added to conference programs with the same validity. A virtual presenter creates a: self-running presentation that includes a voice narration. real-time video conferencing presentation.
Introduction However: Although there is interest in the utility of PowerPoint: Slides are not substitute for guidance a presenter should deliver. If the audience are not “seeing and listening” to the presenter, then learning from the slides will be less valuable.
Introduction The review of the literature emphasized : The potential unique possibilities that a video presents when deciding how to support the audience.
The Need This investigation aims to : Use/develop a software to help virtual presenters prepare PowerPoint-based “video presentations”. This software should accommodate the: Technical differences among presenters. Pedagogical and psychological principles of multimedia design.
The Solution Motivation The majority of solutions available are: sophisticated applications. designed for real-time interaction settings. intended for large‐scale distribution. not suitable for individual virtual presenters’ needs.
The Solution Design assumptions and principles Cognitive Load TheorySignaling Principle, Segmenting Principle, Modality Principle, Multimedia Principle, & Coherence Principle. Sense of Social Presence Video presence and personalized narration within multimedia environments. Usability of the System Effective, Efficient and Satisfactory
The Solution Design and development of the software The Rapid Applications Development model (RAD) offered a framework within which the software was designed, developed and tested on time and within budget.
The Solution Media capture and acquisition technique The software obtains its content from a variety of resources: PowerPoint slides, drawing board writing board, video camera.
The Solution The technique involves opening and manipulating slides and other content in a window and capturing the presentation in real time.
Implications and Conclusions Although very little has been published in literature about the use of virtual video presentation, findings from other fields point to its utility and effectiveness.
Implications and Conclusions It helps virtual presenters apply principles for the design of multimedia materials and human cognitive processing. publish their presentations to video-sharing sites. Interact with participants and receive feedback via social networks (e.g., YouTube, Facebook, & Twitter).
