EdTech startup SlideDog launches Live Sharing and Audience Engagement Platform
SlideDog´s latest version empowers presenters, teachers and professors to reach out to the audience on their mobile phones, laptops and tablets.
With the launch of the live sharing and audience engagement platform by SlideDog, presenters will be able to efficiently interact with their audience on their mobile devices, laptops, and tablets. In addition to being able to live-share between the presenter and audience via electronic devices, SlideDog is also adding a poll-running feature and a remote control, allowing for lecturers and their audiences to efficiently interact with one another.
SlideDog integrates this new channel as a natural and seamless part of any presentation. Thanks to SlideDog’s unique presentation platform, users can jump right in with existing presentation files, such as PowerPoint, YouTube clips, web pages, pdf, and excel, without any uploads or file conversions.
Your presentation is no longer limited to the big screen. Anyone can now follow your slides directly on their own mobile phones, tablets and PCs.
By following a given web link, the audience can see the presenter’s slides on their own device, and also scroll through previous slides. The audience will be able to follow the presentation via mobile devices, laptops, and tablets, whether they are at home, in the lecture room, or anywhere else in the world.
“We will be expanding this feature with the ability to let the audience write and share notes, as well as exporting your presentation as a PDF document,” says Magnus Jensen, lead developer at SlideDog.
Audience Engagement – Learning should not be a one-way street
Live Sharing includes the ability of running polls whenever desired. Each person in the audience will have your question pop up on their device.
The audience engagement platform also includes a poll-running feature, which allows presenters to instantaneously receive feedback from their audience. Using the same live sharing channel, the audience will be able to reach out to the presenter with questions and comments.
The possibilities with SlideDog are endless- users can create a quiz, find out what the audience thinks about a subject, or let them decide what to present next. The answers are instantly presented as an easily readable graph.
Web Remote – Control it all from the palm of your hand
With SlideDog´s new remote control, you can control your presentation from anywhere.
With the SlideDog remote control, the user can switch between slides and files from any web-enabled device while walking around on stage or in the classroom. During larger events, the web remote can be used to switch between multiple presentations as new presenters enter the stage.
SlideDog is the only tool that allows users to combine all sorts of presentations and multimedia files into one seamless experience, with no quality loss or awkward software switches.
The product is already a natural part of everyday life for sales people, teachers, technicians, students, managers and other professional speakers who daily give presentations. More than 50,000 people have used SlideDog since launching in mid 2013.
The team behind SlideDog has over 10 years of experience from the event industry and development of presentation software. In addition to a good technical foundation, in-house experts in Internet marketing have contributed to a substantial month after month user growth since product launch.
