Virtual Presentations - is the computer taking over?

What are the differences between face-to-face presentations and virtual presentations? One of the most obvious is that in a
virtual presentation, a computer of some sort is mandatory - desktop, laptop, tablet, or mobile phone.
So how does this device impact the presenters’ engagement with the audience? Does it help or hinder the interaction ? Maybe we can look at it as a two way process - the computer and the presenter need each other to make each other better. Unfortunately, what happens in many virtual presentations is that the computer seems to take over. The presentation is too machine-like (mind-numbing, robotic, predictable slides and pace) and not very human-like (engaging, exciting, edgy and authentic).
Carmen Simon of Rexi Media will be the keynote speaker in this Adobe Connect webinar which looks at four ways to raise the volume of the human side over the machine side in your virtual presentation. You will learn how concepts such as personal style, generic architecture, templete thinking, expertise, imitation, and innovation can impact the type of engagement you create with your virtual audiences.
