Booth presentations

Booth presentations are short interactive multimedia productions of the kind used in museums and galleries that inform about a particular topic using a limited number of actions that open different categories of information. They are commonly presented as information posts using a computer monitor and include print text, graphics and sound.

PowerPoint toolbar features such as ‘Insert’ and ‘Slide show’ provide means of importing graphic and sound files into PowerPoint and creating category links and options using ‘action buttons’. PowerPoint can be applied to provide the small programs that enable users to select information from different categories as in booth presentations. For assistance in using these features, search ‘action buttons’ and ‘insert’ in the PowerPoint Help index.
