1.       A presentation designed to be browsed by an individual should be set up so it can be started and stopped at any time. A speaker should set up their presentation to be continuous during their speech.

2.       And advantage of doing a presentation live allows for the individual giving the presentation to control what goes on and allows questions. A kiosk will just have the presentation playing on a loop which allows for little interaction.

3.       A passive kiosk just shows the presentation with no input from a viewer. An interactive kiosk allows the viewer to select certain items from the presentation to advance.

4.       Passive: length of presentation, relevance of information, answers questions that may be brought up. Interactive: What the user is asking.

5.       The primary purpose of a presentation is to relay information to the viewer.

6.       Language barrier, difference in culture, non-complicated words to make it easier to understand.

7.       Timing allows for the more important information to be focused on for longer while less important information will be focused on for less time. Movement keeps the viewer focused and can bring the focus to a certain part of the screen. Lighting will make the presentation be more visually appealing.

8.       Itís important to select your projectors resolution because it can make certain text unreadable if the resolution is too low or if the resolution is too high it the device may not be able to keep up with the demand.
