Harbinger Knowledge Products Unveils Unique Online Audience Response System for Presentations, Webinars and Virtual Meetings
Harbinger Knowledge Products new online advanced response system enhances YawnBuster interactive presentation software.
July 21, 2010 (Newswire.com) - Harbinger Knowledge Products, a global leader in interactive eLearning and presentation software, announced today that it has released a new online Audience Response System (ARS) to support face-to-face presentations, webinars and virtual meetings.
The new release will enhance the company's YawnBuster product, the ground-breaking software that enables presenters to add high-impact group activities to PowerPoint presentations. YawnBuster brings presentations alive with group activities, such as audience polls, games, group exercises and competitions.
With the YawnBuster ARS, presenters and facilitators can collect, view and share audience responses for all the YawnBuster group activities in real time without the need of any hardware or software installation for the audience.
Unlike hardware dependent Audience Response Systems (slammers or clickers), which are expensive and limited to face-to-face meetings, or the software keypads which can only be used in virtual meetings, YawnBuster's ARS provides a solution that meets the needs of both online and face-to-face meetings.
"Our goal was to offer an audience response system that is powerful yet simple to use," said Vikas Joshi, chairman and managing director of the Harbinger Group. "This allows presenters to focus on what they do best - to present the content, rather than spend their time managing the hardware or software part of audience response systems," he said.
With YawnBuster ARS, the audience can interact with the presentation through hand-held devices, smartphones and laptops by simply visiting a URL. Every attendee gets a chance to be heard by responding to the questions, participating in a poll or game, and even by typing in free-form text to offer their opinions.
"YawnBuster's ARS empowers attendees by providing a way to interact with the presentation," said Seema Chaudhary, president of Harbinger Knowledge Products. "Presenters can review the audience interaction reports at the end of the presentation to improve the sessions or provide additional information to the attendees.
"With ARS, YawnBuster goes truly live, and connects the presenters to their audiences like never before," she added. "We are sure the millions of presenters worldwide will love the flexibility and ease of use of YawnBuster ARS."
