For this assignment, you will select three current options for creating multimedia presentations that you have available to you. For example, you might wish to compare a narrated PowerPoint, a Screencast-O-Matic recording, and a Prezi presentation. Feel free to use these three options or to select the options that best fit your current personal and professional presentation needs.
