This audience engagement tool is designed for people who regularly deliver presentations, including teachers, lecturers, speakers, workshop facilitators and those who hold meetings on a regularly basis. Based in the UK, startup Hypersay is on a mission to overcome death by Powerpoint.
Currently in beta, the new company enables you to add live interactions to your Powerpoint slides. This includes polls, quizzes, question-posing and video-sharing. To use the audience engagement tool, you simply upload your presentation, add interactions for every slide, share the custom session code with your audience and begin. Borrowing from social media, you can also encourage people to like pages. Other features include being able to see who is following along and who is distracted, control what pages your audience sees and caching slides locally in case the Internet connection stops working.
