purest sense, a presentation is the act of making information publicly
available. Today, the world is the audience and electronic presentations
are the delivery vehicle. A simple web search for "online presentations" lists
over 6 million results. Technology has become the presenter and
the presentation. With more than 17 million users worldwide, PowerPoint
is the technology.
The appeal is easy to see. Thousands of dollars can be saved in
travel costs. Your presentation, sales pitch, training course, etc.
is available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Almost anyone can create
a presentation or training course. The downside is that everyone
may not be able to access your presentation.
