Log-into Presentria before your presentation


a. A few minutes before your presentation, go to the first slide where you've embedded the Presentria quiz to log into our system.

b. Go back to the beginning of your PowerPoint presentation (e.g., slide 1) and present as usual.
c. When you've arrived at the slide where you've embedded the Presentria question, click the blue-color "Start New Session" button.

d. You'll be shown the Presentria screen on this PowerPoint slide. Proceed with your question as usual.

e. Once the Presentria question is done, just move to the next slide in the PowerPoint to continue your presentation. (Design tips: If you're used to clicking on the screen to move to the next slide, try not to cover the whole page with the Presentria box so that you can click the empty area (e.g., lower right hand corner) to move to the next slide.)

f. If you have another Presentria question embedded in the same presentation, you'll be asked if you want to start a new session or continue the current one. Click the purple-color "Continue Current Session" button so that this question get displayed automatically at students' computers or smartphones.

g. Depending on your slide design and presentation style, you may find the "Browsed by an individual (window)" show type useful. That is, in the Ribbon, go to the "Slide Show" tab, click the "Set up Slide Show" icon, and then select "Browsed by an individual (window)"]. This step is optional.
