Presenting complex topics can be a tricky balancing act – how much technical information can you convey without losing your audience? Wouldn’t it be handy if you could gauge audience understanding throughout the presentation to check in on how much is resonating, and how much is slipping through the cracks? Well, with Microsoft Forms’ Present Mode, you now can do just that!
Present Mode is a dynamic feature that enhances the presentation capabilities of Microsoft Forms. It allows you to engage in real-time, active participation by forms into interactive presentations. With Present Mode, you can gauge the audience’s understanding and gather their responses instantly, creating an immersive and interactive presentation experience. This powerful mode feature enables you to easily share surveys and gather feedback, making it an ideal tool for meetings, or any situation where active forms of communication are essential.
To begin, let’s open up Microsoft Forms. You have two options when creating a form: starting from scratch or utilising pre-set templates.
There are several ways you can further customise the form design experience:
Now that you’ve got your form, it’s time to pop it into a PowerPoint presentation.
1. Launch PowerPoint and create a new presentation or open an existing one.
2. In the toolbar, click on the “Insert” tab or Apps button, and then select “Forms” from the dropdown menu. This will open the Microsoft Forms pane on the right side of your PowerPoint window, or a window directly into your slide (depending on the version of PowerPoint you have).
3. Either insert the URL of your form, or hover over your chosen form and click “Insert”.
4. There is an option to create a new form from within PowerPoint. Following steps 1 and 2, you would then click the “New Form” button to start creating your form. Add your rating questions by selecting the appropriate question type and customising the options, such as the number of rating scales or the labels for each scale.
5. After inserting the form, you will be get two options: “Present for interaction meeting” or “Collect responses offline.” To engage with the audience directly in the meeting with live results, select “Present for interaction meeting”.
6. The form will now be displayed in Present mode, which acts as a live web form. And you can ensure participants have easy access to the form via a QR code or short URL.
Microsoft Forms’ Present Mode is compatible with mobile devices, ensuring convenience and flexibility. Whether you are using an iOS or Android device, your participants can seamlessly access and respond to forms using the Microsoft Forms app or through a web browser on their mobile device.
By enabling mobile use, Present Mode significantly increases the convenience and accessibility of forms. Participants no longer need to be tied to their desktops or laptops to provide feedback or complete surveys. Instead, they can conveniently access and respond to forms at their own pace, wherever they may be.
This compatibility with mobile devices also promotes increased participation and engagement. With the option to respond to forms on the go, individuals are more likely to take the time to provide thoughtful and comprehensive responses. This flexibility ensures that surveys and questionnaires can reach a wider audience, resulting in more accurate and meaningful data.
Integrated immersive reader tools in Microsoft Forms’ Present Mode elevates the learning experience for everyone in the presentation. By enabling immersive reader for each section of a form, you can provide personalised support to participants, enhancing accessibility, and enabling them to better comprehend and engage with the content.
To enable immersive reader for each section of a form, simply navigate to the “Form Design” experience and select the desired section. From there, click on the “More Options” button and choose “Enable Immersive Reader.” This ensures that all participants have access to text that is read aloud, along with additional features like text spacing, font customisation, and translation capabilities.
To access immersive reader in Preview mode, simply click on the Immersive Reader icon located at the top right corner of the form.
In the world of presentations, finding the balance between technical depth and audience engagement is a challenge. Microsoft Forms’ innovative Present Mode now offers a solution, allowing you to seamlessly integrate interactive elements into presentations. This dynamic feature transforms static content into an immersive experience, fostering real-time engagement and valuable insights.
