Feedback on a short presentation

Hi.

I'm working towards adding freelance e-learning design and development to my current graphic and web design services.

I'm producing a short presentation for my portfolio to describe what kind of services I'll offer and would like some feedback from anyone here willing to take a couple of minutes to view this.

Note: The voiceover you hear is me and my first attempt at doing this. I probably will re-do most of the voice as I had a bit of a cold the day I recorded this.

I appreciate any comments from those willing to offer them.

I enjoyed the presentation.

Mostly I enjoy the simplicity. No cognitive overload here, thanks for presenting your information gradually in segment.

Style is clear and crisp and the interactive touch makes it an interesting presentation.

The font is great as well.

Good as part of your portfolio but could be considered a little bit simple standing alone.

The only part that annoyed me was the end where I had no choice to go back and re-visit previous slides.

Up to that point I was happy with it.

I'm sure others will also have constructive feedback.

Thanks for sharing it with the community.

If I go through your website I can't find that presentation again under the eLearning header.

Have you put a link to it on your site yet or will you do that after you get feedback/make changes?

I'm asking as normally after seeing a presentation on a specific website I like to run through the site to get a feel for the business and check for information.

Your site is accessible through your profile so for me after seeing the presentation I went straight there after seeing this post. Others may do the same.

I felt the need to do some reworks based on comments received here before putting it up on my site.

Exactly. Add a click here to run through it again. I'm viewing in on a notebook pc by the way.

For a good presentation sometimes I like to run through it several times.

I may have missed a point or want to clarify a question I have.

Also for the click on your logo option could you add other ways of contacting you?

In the links below I feel both sites are presentations but an interactive and fun one.

http://www.stephanieharnett.ca/

But if I click on the 'Contact' folder you can see the ways I could contact Stephanie.

The same with Bruce's site.

http://www.pperf.co.uk/

Try the 'Contacting Me' page there.

Both are also built  in Storyline.

Look at Bruce and Stephanie's respective sites and the 'Contact Page' for each one.

I think they do a good job of presenting how to contact them.

I guess it really depends how you want to be contacted.

Bruce has multiple methods. Stephanie has Skype, phone and e-mail.

I like to visually see an e-mail address so I can remember it and then copy/paste it in my e-mail account.

Others may feel differently.

Personally I feel your presentation would be better suited as an opening to your site.

But I do like it and I'm not trying to be negative with my opinions.

Those impressive examples are what can be done with Storyline. Send a PM to the creators as they're the ones who made them.

When I look at the opening part of Stephanie's website I feel like I'm sitting in a cinema.

If I was looking for ways for a company or individual to contact me I would aim to make it as easy as possible.

Easily accessible and make sure I was always available for contact.
