ADDITIONAL HELPFUL RESOURCES

The following resources on FXP | touch are also available:

AACC (FXP | touch) Webinar Presentation slide deck - view the presentation slides from the webinar.

AACC (FXP | touch) Template slide deck - view examples of all the interactions you can use and copy any of them into your presentation.

A short video with helpful FXP | touch best practices for presenters.

CREATING YOUR PRESENTATION FOR FXP | TOUCH

Creating your presentation for FXP | touch is easy. Simply create the deck as you normally would with PowerPoint or Keynote, keeping the following differences in mind:

  • Make sure presentations can be resaved as PDFs. In order for FXP | touch to interact in real time with all attendee devices, presentations must be loaded into the system as PDFs. Therefore, please note that while animations, complex transitions, or embedded videos will display normally through your presentation, they will not show in the FXP | touch attendee devices. If possible, please create your presentation without these animations, complex transitions, or embedded videos.
  • To get the build effect, split animated lists across multiple slides. If you have lists that you would normally build using animations, you can split your builds across multiple slides and the FXP | touch system will play them in one seamless build.
  • Provide videos separately. If you would like to include videos in your presentation, please provide the source content and we will provide the equipment to seamlessly play your videos.

MAKING YOUR PRESENTATION INTERACTIVE

Check out the AACC (FXP | touch) Template slide deck to see example slides for each of the different participant interactions available through the FXP | touch system.

To include these interactions in your presentation, simply copy and paste the template example slides into your PowerPoint and customize with your questions and information (one question per slide). We’ll do the rest.

Testing Your Presentation

Optional: If you want to test your presentation, send it to andrew.kantner@freeman.com and jenn.lee@freeman.com as soon as it is ready with interactions. You will then be provided with a practice link to test and interact with your slides in FXP | touch.

A few additional tips and notes:

  • Be sure to place the interaction slides in the order in which you want them to appear in your presentation.
  • If you want the same interaction for multiple slides, copy and paste the template slide to each place that you want it in your presentation.
  • There is no limit to the number of interactive slides you can use.
  • To keep participants engaged in your talk, we recommend including slides that prompt audience interaction every 5 to 7 slides.
  • Be sure to build in enough time for the interactions in your presentation.
