Throughout your life, you will give many types of presentations. You will need to be able to organize your thoughts logically in order to persuade others to your way of thinking. The successful presentation will be applicable throughout your lifetime. So, what is a successful presentation?
According to Conroy stated that there were three components that should be emphasized in your presentation: good content, skill in presenting the content, and effective use of support tools.
After you decided the theme or topic and made an outline, you should know how to select related resources and where you could look for. There are so many types of resources that presenters can select when they prepare presentations.
However, you should avoid to give a boring presentation. So, you should establish the objectives for your presentation that require the analysis of your own goals, your audience’s needs and expectations in order to get their attention and provide a successful presentation.
What kinds of resources that we have to include in presentation? Audiovisual materials!!! Audiovisual materials are combination of sound and image linked by a theme. They can add impact and interest to a presentation and increase the audience’s understanding and retention level.
Because these kinds of resources that can really help presenters provide emphasis to audience, multiply audience’s understanding of the material presented, reinforce impression, create excitement, and so forth.
Audiovisual resources can greatly enrich students' research information skills in the learning opportunities and enhance students' research experiences.
There are many ways in which audiovisual resources can be utilized.
Students should try to use these online applications to enhance their resources and make powerful presentations.
