Brainshark On-Demand™ allows users to update and enrich presentations at any time and manage their content in the cloud. Here are additional details on these capabilities:
Users can easily add or update slides to an existing presentation by:
Uploading additional PowerPoints, documents, video clips or photos
Replacing/swapping out existing slides
Including live web pages in a presentation (URL slides)
Add side-by-side video
Users can augment any Brainshark presentation with video to play side-by-side with slides, using Brainshark’s unique VideoSync feature. Authors simply click to upload a video clip (over 100 formats supported) to combine with their slides, then use intuitive sliders to time animations, adjust the duration of each slide, and set presentation zoom levels.
Once your video-and-slide presentation is ready, it will play natively on virtually any computer or tablet with no plug-ins or apps required.
Users can also upload and attach any number of files or documents (in any format up to 100MB per upload) that viewers can access alongside the presentation and download to their desktop – such as a PowerPoint file, a related document or data sheet, a corresponding spreadsheet, etc.
Brainshark On-Demand also provides the ability to insert interactive “question slides” into any presentation, including polls, surveys and/or examination questions. Adding interactivity to video presentations is a powerful way to connect with the audience at the moment they're interested. For marketers and salespeople, interactive questions such as polls and surveys offer a way to gather feedback and validate interest. For trainers, examination questions can be used to measure comprehension or certify students.
Question types available with Brainshark On-Demand include:
Multiple Choice (single select & multi-select, plus optional fill-in-the-blank response):
Likert Scale (“on a scale of 1 to 5…”)
Essay (open text response)
Multi-select multiple choice (more than one answer is correct)
Fill in the blank
Additional question features include the ability to randomize the order that questions appear in a presentation, set the number of attempts allowed per question, and include branching logic to direct viewers based on their answers. And with examination questions, authors can assign point values/scores per question, randomize the answers to a question, and customize text-based feedback per answer (e.g. “correct,” “incorrect, try again”).
Merge, customize and personalize content
Users can further enrich their presentations by leveraging and re-purposing existing content by:
Copying and merging audio, visuals and/or attachments between presentations they have access to
Customizing slides, settings or options of presentations to meet the needs of different audiences
Personalizing others’ presentations by adding or substituting their own opening or closing slides. Up to twenty personalized slides may be added to the front or back of a presentation.
Guest Authoring™ is another powerful way to enrich a Brainshark presentation. This feature allows users to send a pre-formatted email to an outside expert or presenter (such as a senior executive, customer or voiceover professional), who receives a unique URL to a page that provides simple instructions for adding their voice and/or slides to the presentation…at their convenience. Following the same patented approach as a Brainshark user, the guest author will be prompted to dial a phone number or activate their microphone, and then will be guided through the process. Guest authors can easily review and re-record any portion until satisfied. The Brainshark user will be instantly notified once the presentation is ready.
