                                        Google Presenter

 
 
 
 
 
 

                                      Title and Developer

"Google Presenter," a web-based 2.0 application, was developed by Google in September 2007, the latest addition to its web office suite and is an internet-network wide presentation program similar to that of Microsoft PowerPoint.

                                        VS.

                                Purpose of Google Presenter

The purpose of Google Presenter is to enable people from different locations the ability to collaborate and/or view and/or comment on a project. With Google Presenter a group of people are able to login to Google Presenter and upload a slideshow or they can start from scratch, and from different locations and/or computers can work together for whatever reasons they may have. This enables distance collaboration on projects. It also saves the Presentation every time it is updated, so at any time the user can go back to an earlier version. This is crucial if say the document is sabotaged by a competitor or in case you just don't like the changes you have made.

It seems that the ability to work on a project as a group without the hassle of e-mailing each other back and forth is the main reason Google has created Google Presenter. Since they are allowing users to upload their PowerPoint documents, it seems that they were also creating a way that multiple users could view a presentation of the document at the same time even though they are not in the same room but rather spread out all over the world.(#1)

                                      How Does it Work?

Google Presenter works by way of the internet. Every document created, or uploaded, in Google Presenter is accessible anywhere there is an internet connection available. You can simply log in to your google account, go to google docs location, and from there work on all your projects.

It has the familiar UI (User Interface) look and feel similar to their other office web applications, Google Docs and Spreadsheets and is simple, intuitive and easy to use, which reduces the learning time for new users. 

Another main part of Google Presenter is the way you can pick and choose who gets to see and/or edit your document. This is done by using the "Share" feature. Clicking on the Share button, located at the top right of the Google Presenter program, will load up a new page and ask if you want the people you are inviting to see the presentation to be collaborators, which means they can edit the presentation, or just viewers, who can basically just look at the presentation. When it comes time to present, there is a sidebox feature which allows all viewers to talk about the presentation while it is going on. Google has also added a language feature that can translate 25 different languages to deal with multi-cultural presentations.(#2)

                             Setting up a Google Presentation

 

Creating a New Presentation 

To begin, you'll navigate to the Google Docs home page.  If you are not already logged in to your Google account, it will prompt you to do so. A link to the Google Docs page where Presentation can be found is given below.

http://www.google.com/google-d-s/presentations/


                                                      If you are already logged in, go to the Google Home Page:
 

                                        To open a presentation, first click on Documents at the top on the toolbar.    
 
                                         
 

                                                                       From the Create Menu, select Presentation. 
 
                                            
 From here on in, the functionality is very similar to that of Microsoft PowerPoint but lets walk through how to do a couple    of simple things on Google Presenter.

From the slide menu, you can add a new slide, duplicate a slide, delete a slide, or zoom in or out.
 

                                                  
 
The insert menu allows you to import video, images, or slides from other sources.
  
                                                                
 
 
These are some of the basic things you can do with Google Presenter. Other abilites of the program, like sharing with others and picking out a theme, are not that hard to learn it just takes a little time practicing with the program.

 

Other Important Features 


The slides sidebar lets you navigate through your slides and move them around.

The usual top tabs are present: for editing and working with revisions on the left side, and the sharing and publishing options on the right.

                                                                          

                                                                 

On the toolbar area, there are two toolbars: the main toolbar which provides the functionalities that apply to the whole presentation such as themes, slide management (new, duplicate and delete) as well as text and image insertion.

The editing toolbar provides all the rich-text editing functionalities for formatting the presentation content.

                                                                                             

As mentioned, Google Presentation has a theme feature that lets you change the appearance of all your slides. There's enough themes available that will make your presentation look pleasing and appealing.


                                                              

Different templates for slide layouts are also present, but you can only set this when creating a new slide. You can't take advantage of the pre-designed layouts when modifying an existing slide.

                                                               
 
Starting a presentation shows the interface below, complete with a chat box to allow for discussions among the collaborators during the presentation.

                                                           

The sharing looks exactly like the ones found in its brother apps, and again, consistency of the UI wins here. You can also publish your presentation as a stand-alone presentation page, which you can share with anyone.

Google Presentation is very easy to use. Although lacking in more advanced presentation features such as animations and timings, this product will capture the hearts of users who wants a quick, easy and installation-free presentation tool.

                                        Benefits and Limits

 According to the website http://edtechlife.com/?p=1863 there are many benefits, as well as limits, of Google Presenter. One benefit is that there is a chat feature available since the slideshow is presented online. This is beneficial because anyone has the capability to have a synchronous discussion. With this feature, individuals can ask questions or add comments and receive immediate feedback.

Another benefit that Google Presenter offers is the capability to have different color displays and text options. This is important for teachers, as well as anyone, using Google Presenter because choosing the correct colors and font makes the presentation more visually appealing and when done correctly, easier to read. It is necessary to choose the correct colors and size/style of font so the audience does not have to struggle to see the presentation and they can have a clear understanding. In fact, Google Presenter has a zoom option so the presenter can magnify certain parts of the presentation.

The limits are also important to understand while using Google Presenter. First, there is no audio feature available in Google presenter. This is important for teachers, as well as any presenters, to understand because there could be audience members with hearing disabilities. The abilities and disabilities of your audience are always important to think about when making a presentation. Next, it is important to know the resources your audience will have because a computer must be available for every person that wants to chat. Also, Google Presenter does not keep an archive of the chat, so it is important to understand that one will not be able to review what was previously discussed over the chat feature.


                                 

                                                 Different Colors Available                                                             No Audio Available

Business Application: Discrimination in the Workplace

Business Application .docx

Business LP.pdfBusiness Application .pdf

Objectives

  • Workers will address the issue of discrimination in the workplace.
  • Workers will identify strategies for combating discrimination in the workplace.

Materials

  • Paper
  • Markers
  • Masking Tape

Procedure

  • Remind everyone that discrimination takes many forms. Ask participants to brainstorm examples of discrimination. List their answers on paper or a chalkboard. Include any of the following that participants neglect to mention: Teasing, name calling, or using derogatory terms for race/ethnicity, sexual orientation, or gender;
    Excluding someone from activities, or ignoring or denying requests based on the requester's race/ethnicity, gender, sexual orientation or gender identity;
    Sexually, physically or verbally attacking someone (especially with the 'authorities' ignoring, condoning, or even encouraging this behavior);
    Treating someone unfairly in the workplace, public spaces, or educational institutions (for example, denying someone a job or a raise on the basis of race/ethnicity, gender, sexual orientation, gender identity, or age)
  • Ask participants to think of a time when they or someone they care about was treated unfairly or unequally because they were members of some specific group. Ask for volunteers to share these experiences; use the questions that you wrote up prior to the session.
  • Record the main idea of each experience on a single sheet of paper. (You will use these ideas later.) If participants hesitate to volunteer, begin the discussion by describing an incident that you witnessed or that occurred to you or to someone you care about. Ask participants to identify what would have helped in the situation. Then encourage others to share their stories.
  • Ask what strategies and techniques the students might use to confront and combat similar discrimination, if they saw it happening now. Help them identify effective techniques. List their ideas on the board or paper. Some ideas include: assertively asking the harasser to stop; standing up for the person who is being discriminated against; distracting everyone with humor; calling someone in authority, etc.
  • Explain that you are going to give the group a few minutes to practice the new technique using the five steps. Divide participants into groups of four or five and assign each group one of the posted discriminatory situations that were listed earlier in the session. If necessary, add more situations to the list.
  • Tell the participants that they will have 15 minutes for this next part. Go over the following instructions: Decide as a group if the five steps to stopping harassment would work in the situation presented to the group. If so, create a role play to demonstrate how to use the technique. If the group doesn't think the steps will work, create a role play for another technique that your group believes might work; Practice role playing the situation; Be prepared to perform your role play for the other groups; When the groups have finished, have them present their role plays. Invite other participants to make additional suggestions for confronting and combating discrimination.

Evaluation

Over the next few weeks, talk individually with many different workers and ask them if they think the business atmosphere has changed as far as discrimination goes since this exercise has taken place.

                        How is it Related to Other Applications?

Google Presenter is actually very similar to that of Microsoft PowerPoint. Just like PowerPoint, it is a slide based presentation creator that allows the creator to choose a common theme among all slides, create graphs, insert photos or videos, and it even allows you to upload a PowerPoint (ppt or pps) document and turn it into a Google Presenter document. However, Google Presenter goes far and beyond Microsoft PowerPoint in that it allows group chat while the presentation is being viewed and also allows for multiple persons to edit the same document instead of multiple people editing several different copies of the document.

 Dircetions on how to convert a Powerpoint Presentation to a Google Presentation:

http://youtu.be/odSQlNlaNn4
#Back To Top


                                    Examples of Use Right Now 

Since Google Presenter is so much like Microsoft PowerPoint, it can easily be used in the business world for giving presentations on really anything desired. However, there are endless other types of reasons to use Google Presenter including teaching, informing, and persuading. 

 There is one man who used Google Presenter to create a presentation to show what could all be done with Google Presentations as he was trying to encourage people to use Google Presentations for Sunday School purposes. His presentation can be found at this link: http://docs.google.com/Present?docid=dcq269t4_79vhv646&fs=true. It really shows how easy it is to create a presentation and embed it on to a web site.(#3)
 
#Back To Top


 

                                    Uses in Foreign Countries 

Using Google presenter in other countries is easily achievable as Google Doc's offers language settings in many foreign languages. Select settings on the Google Doc's home page (top right corner) and then choose language, this option changes the interface to suit the individual's preference. Google Presenter offers twenty-five different languages which makes it very convenient all over the world. With this feature, international, national or local learning institutions or businesses of different ethnicities can use this application as a learning tool or strategy for collaboration or for disseminating information/training. For Example, an Italian international organization with representatives in different locations throughout the world can congregate online simultaneously and set their Google Presenter interface to their native language, then proceed to give input into a presentation collaboratively for teaching students/employees on new products, information or techniques. However, it appears if you were to collaborate internationally and two languages were present, the presentation slides only appear in the language of the original creator. Unless the users were bilingual or the original creator had this ability and applied two different texts on the slide a major issue applies for international correlation. For example, if the Italian organization had representatives of different nationalities throughout the world they could all simultaneously congregate online with the interface set to their native language. However, to collaborate on the presentation, the creator would have to use different texts on each slide or make multiple copies of the presentation in different languages to overcome the language barriers. As far as uses of Google Presenter, not much changes from the U.S. to the rest of the world.^(^#4)

    1. Hi Jesse,

      I would like to do the page for Google Presenter on ' How to use Google Presenter'

      Our tutor has asked for a draft of what we are doing by weds - so can you let me know if I can go ahead

      Cheers

      Martina

      1. Unknown User (jwuethri)

        Hey Martina,

        Im glad that you are willing to do that for us, however, I think everything is going to be posted on one page and just be separated by divisors and section heading titles. So basically you would just be working on the section ' How to use Google Presenter '. But yes that is fine.

        My email is jwuethri@purdue.edu if you have any questions and want to contact me.

  8. Hello everyone, this is Martina (Nay) from Gold Coast Australia studying through USQ.  I had some trouble with my log in so have only just got it sorted.  I am looking forward to working with you all.

    Cheers

  9. Hi my name is Craig, I'm from Mt Isa in Outback Australia (that's way out back). This is all new learning for me and am not really sure how to navigate around the site. Have read that a post is due by the 31st March so am going to have to forfiet this unless it is alright to post it late. Jesse, I have sent you an email to try and clarify what is required.  The subject title is Aussie Goggle Presenter, so I hope this is not an omen of how things are goinig to go for me.  Anyway, I will research Google Presenter instead and hopefully make some progress.   All the best everyone and look forward to working with you all.

    Cheers Mate

  11. Hi Jesse,
    I've put a word doc under attachments on our page. It's titled 'Google Presenter - How To' . I hope this is ok. Can you let me know if what I've done is adequate or if there is something else that I should add.

      Hey Martina,

      Yes that is great, we'll probably just go ahead and use that one on the final draft and replace the picture "how to" I have on the rough draft right now.

      Thanks,

      Jesse

  12. Hey Jesse

                    Seen our peer review and we only scored a fair for uses in foreign countries, so have expanded on the topic and placed it into the rough draft of google presenter. Hope it helps, not sure where else to take the topic. Maybe we could place a demonstration of how to change the language setting like you have done under the topic setting up a google presentation. Also I am not sure what our schedule is for the final presentation and if there is anything else you need me to contribute?

    Cheers

    Craig

  13. Hi Jesse

    I noticed your recent changes and I thank you for your input.  Just a couple of points.  The reference (below) I had added has been removed and I just wondered the reason for this as this site was one of the main sites I accessed for my input?  It's quite possible that it was accidently removed as it looks similar to the second reference listed as has the same date.  Also the lesson plan on Google Presenter has been taken off - perhaps I misunderstoon the question - but my intention here was to add a lesson plan under the subject of Information Technology with Google Presenter / Presentation being the topic for that particular class lesson.  Do you know when the final presenation is and if you would like me to do anything further?  Thanks again Jesse - I really appreciate all the work you and the others have done here.  It has been a pleasure to work with you all.  Cheers for now....Martina (big grin)
