Storytelling of our Project: Eurasia
Part 3 (Final P.P Presentation)
The following post is part of the #Eurasia project of the Ad Discovery Workshop of Panteion University in Greece.
Eurasia is a start-up project based on the Ad Discovery Workshop: an experimental peer-to-peer learning, hands-on workshop conducted by Assistant Professor Betty Tsakarestou of the Department of Communication Media and Culture, of Panteion University, Athens, Greece. Founded by 6 university students from 3 different countries and 2 continents, Eurasia works as an international journalistic and social platform that serves as a multicultural community that everyone from Europe and Asia can join, read articles from various perspectives, meet people from different backgrounds and write articles of their own to post on our site and social media pages. Our basic purpose is to create a better understanding of the travelling, technological social and cultural beliefs and differences between the countries of Eurasia.
After the creation and through the process of managing Eurasia it was important for us to create a final presentation, in order to present a better understanding of the reasons the project was created, to outline its key points, the process and its results and share all these aspects with the audience. For this purpose we chose the computer software “PowerPoint” to help us create and show slides that would support our presentation. The whole process of creating our final presentation lasted 4–5 days. Daphne Diapouli and I were responsible for writing, editing and organizing the content of the PowerPoint, while the creation of the slides and the PowerPoint design and styling is the work of Ling Jin. The outcome was a combination of text, graphics and multi-media content.
Since we wanted to avoid complex structures, that would only confuse the audience and downgrade our project, we focused on the need to explain and discuss our work clearly, by presenting its main points in a logical and coherent sequence that leads to a lucid and purposeful conclusion.
Presentation Structure (slides):
What is Eurasia: First of all, it was important to make a short yet meaningful introduction of the content and the purpose of Eurasia.
How we came up with the idea: The next step was to identify the problem and justify the reason we decided to choose this specific topic as our objective.
Choosing templates: Since social media plays a crucial role in the communication and marketing process, in this slide we decided to introduce the social websites we chose to be the social representatives of the Eurasia community and the reason(s) why.
Building a foundation — Development process: In this slide we summarized in 9 steps the process of the development of our project, in order to create a better understanding of our work.
The slides “Timeline & Archive”, “Sign Up-Log in/ Subscribe/ Contact”, “Submissions & Email” and “Photo & Video Galleries” are a combination of pictures and text, that form some sort of “navigation” in the Eurasia site, while providing an explanation of the site’s main opportunities and abilities and presenting its design and layout.
What skills can our team benefit from: As Eurasia is an interactive community, anyone interested can offer their support in sections like “writing”, “research”, “feedback” and “marketing”.
Promoting: In this PowerPoint slide we explained more specifically the promoting process that would help us establish an international internet community.
Device Compatibility: We decided to dedicate a slide of our PowerPoint presentation to inform the audience about how easily accessible is the Eurasia website. We made sure to make it compatible with all sort of electronic devices and even created a mobile version.
Learnings and Achievements: During the Eurasia project we had the opportunity to discover and learn many useful things and we were genuinely happy to see that our hard work and dedication managed to produce actual results and make an impact. We made sure to summarize all these learnings and achievements in this PowerPoint slide.
Feedback: Feedback was the most powerful management tool that we had at our disposal. It helped us to understand how people perceive our performance, as well as detect Eurasia’s strengths and weaknesses. Feedback was also very motivating and energizing, leading our team to become more productive and passionate.
Activate the community & Future plans: Last but not least, we couldn’t finish our presentation without sharing our future plans and goals, regarding the promotion, activation and growth of our Eurasia community.
