Two Minute Tutorial: Popplet Presentation Modes

With Popplet there are not one, but two ways to transform Popplet boards into impressive presentations. Both modes are easy to enable and equally effective in the boardroom, the classroom or the living room.

Everything you need to give the perfect Popplet presentation can be found in the view menu, just open the popplet you want to present, click on the cog menu (1), then select view (2) and you are given three options (3):

  • Presentation mode – display each and any popple, one at a time, in any order you choose

  • Hide nametags – useful for public sharing and presentations

  4. Exit the presentation by clicking exit in the bottom right hand corner of the screen
  5. Close the pop up window to exit popplet presentation mode. The presentation will be saved automatically for the next time presentation mode is activated. If you don’t want to save the presentation, select clear from the pop up window, and Popplet will forget it.
