Presentation Videos 2 AbstractIn researching what a presentation is, and watching 2 different kinds of presentation videos, Ihave found that they both follow the basic concept of the Rhetorical Triangle. Each videoconsist of a speaker, audience, and situation, but they both address their audience in differentways. The 1st video, which is not done in front of a live audience, still addresses theirinformation to parents around the world. The 2nd video is in front of a live audience but can stillbe seen by those not able to attend. And both videos talk about changes that need to be made.
Presentation Videos 3 Compare and Contrast Presentation Videos Before starting this paper I first had to remind myself of what a presentation is as well aswhat it entails. A presentation is the act of presenting an idea or explaining a concept to a groupof people. It could be a CEO of a company showing its board members where the company iscoming from to where it is going in the future using tools such as whiteboards, videos, graphs,etc. It could be a doctor wanting to show his colleges his theory on a disease he is researching, ateacher wanting to show the steps in learning how to play the piano, or even a cook wanting toshow how to make a dish. There are many different types of presentations done by manydifferent kinds of people, and in many different ways. But the one concept that always stays thesame is in the use of the Rhetorical Triangle which consists of a speaker, an audience, and asituation. (Chapter 10: The Rhetorical Triangle, 2011) Due to the fact that there are so many different kinds of presentations, I decided to do myresearch on 2 different kinds. The 1st video is on a subject matter that hits close to home,Childhood Obesity in America. The speaker gives a short statement about obesity to parents ofyoung children and although this is not done in front of a live audience, it is considered apresentation video because it follows the concept of the rhetorical triangle of speaker, audience,and situation. Speaker: Alexis Cala Audience: Parents of children Situation: Obesity
Presentation Videos 4 In this video the speaker after giving her opening statement proceeds to provideinformation on ways to reduce the problem, different alternative options, as well as livecomments from medical professionals. She also showed using her video what some smallchildren do on daily basics. I found each element in her presentation to be valid and successfulbecause as a parent and dealing with my own kids fight with this, I could relate and understandthe points she was saying. (Cala, 2011) The 2nd video also followed the concepts of the Rhetorical Triangle of speaker, audience,and situation. Speaker: Tom Brown Audience: Design Engineers Situation: Change in the design industry In his video, Tom Brown is talking in front of a live audience on stage. He talks aboutdesigns he made as well as others from the past. He provides all kinds of video aids for theaudience, and talks about why there is a need for change in the field of design engineering. I felthe was very effective in getting his message out to the proper people. (Mushaweh, 2010) In comparing and contrasting the two video presentations, although both seemed to be wellmade due to the fact their messages did come across plain and clear, I found Tom Browns to bemore effective. Not only is he standing in front of his audience, he speaks to them on a levelunderstanding of the problems going on. In the end he even provides a twitter location where thepeople in the audience can give ideas on what needs to be tackled to make life better in poorcountries.
