Multimedia Presentations

During their KS2 education in ICT children will be exposed to multimedia presentations such as PowerPoint. They will see how multimedia presentations can come in many different forms and have many different uses.

A multimedia presentation is one that uses more than one medium. Text, sound, 'photos, animations, videos and interactive content are all forms that might be combined in the one presentation. 'Multimedia' seems to be a thoroughly twenty-first-century concept - it's so modern that you'd think it appeared in the last few years. You might be surprised to know that people have been discussing 'multimedia' since the 1950s! 'Multimedia' is often used to make presentations more exciting.

See how much you know about the different forms multimedia presentations can take and the different uses they have by playing this quiz.

  1. What is meant by 'multimedia'?
    A presentation which uses images, video, animations, sound and text would be one example of multimedia - this interactive quiz is another example
  2. Which of the following can be added as a background to a slide?
    You may wish to create a presentation in which all the slides share the same design
  3. Which of these is NOT true?
    Sound is a very useful addition to a presentation
  4. For which of these could you NOT use a multimedia presentation?
    A presentation package could not work out calculations on its own, but it could present the results of calculations by including tables, charts or diagrams
  5. A presentation created using a software package, such as PowerPoint, will be made from what?
    PowerPoint is a slide show presentation program used to get ideas across
  6. If you would like to add special effects to the appearance of words or images, what do you need to add?
    By adding animations, you can control how a word or image appears or disappears, or the order in which information appears; you can also use animations for emphasis, or just for fun
  7. Which of these can you insert into a presentation?
    You can provide narration for your presentation by directly recording your voice as you read the information from (or talk about) each slide
  8. Using too many different animations, sounds, images and other special effects in a presentation is likely to have which negative effect?
    When creating a multimedia presentation, you should think carefully about the overall effect of your choice of colours, images, sounds and animations - too much variety can be very distracting for your audience
  9. In a presentation, what are transitions?
    There are lots of different transition effects like one slide covering the current one from the top of the screen, a spinning slide, dissolving slides or slides that push one another off the screen
  10. If you wished to be able to view (and use) a website during a presentation, what would you need to add to a slide?
