Let me inform you how I’m utilizing it and why.
Creating the presentation in Rise 360 is simply as quick as making a slide.
With Rise 360, I spend much less time setting up the format as a result of I’m not beginning with an empty slide. Nevertheless, I can nonetheless make one thing that’s visually interesting, chunked into distinct sections, and nonetheless management what’s on the display screen and when.
