My First Prezi on DDLC

Vodpod videos no longer available.

My First Prezi on DDLC, posted with vodpod

 

I created my first Prezi on Document Development Life Cycle(DDLC). I feel still there are enough rooms to enhance my prezi. Maybe I will groom much better in my next attempt.  I am curious to know your feedbacks and critics.

Customer Experience Management (CEM)

July 29, 2010

 Scenario:

U.S.airways came across a unique problem. Though many of their customers logged in their site, checked for flights, fare etc didn’t proceed to book their tickets. In short, there is a huge dip in U.S.airways business. Web Metrics results were quite interesting.

Many of their customers entered the flight numbers wrongly, so the site was unable to process their request. Annoyed customers changed their mind and as a result no business for U.S.airways.

When they corrected this error (?), (maybe an auto-popup flight number field instead of a text box), U.S.airways found almost 100 percent rise in their business.

So unless you don’t know how your clients use your website, you can’t say that whatever you have developed is user-friendly. The feature which sounds simple for you may be annoying for the clients.

This is referred as Customer Experience Management (CEM). There are many vendors deploy CEM for their clients (of course not in free of cost).

I am planning to explore the web metrics and post few more in this space.

How to add your Prezi in your WordPress blog

July 27, 2010

I created a sample Prezi (wait, final touches are going on) and I just explored the prezi site for finding a way to add my sample prezi in my space. WordPress usually don’t encourage third party components, java scripts (like web counter). They believe in self help is the best help. 🙂

When I went through the prezi community forum, I got the solution which I wanted to share here.

  1. Visit this site: http://vodpod.com/wordpress/ . You will see a “Post to WordPress” button on the left side.
  2. Right click on that button and add it into your browser Favorites (just in case for re-usability).
  3. Now from the Favorites, open that script (yes, it is a script). A pop-up window will open.
  4. Paste the Embed code in the Video Preview column that you copied from your Prezi  earlier.
  5. Fill-in your wordpress blog address, User name and password in their respective fields.
  6. If you wish, fill-in the Post details.
  7. Click the Send to Blog editor link. This will take you to your wordpress blog editor mode.
  8. Do the necessary edits and publish the post.
  9. You should see the Prezi created in your wordpress blog.

Present yourself with the Prezi

July 20, 2010

Are you

  • bored with static (with limited animated) Presentations..?
  • looking for some innovative techniques to present in a better way..?
  • interested in keeping your audience awake rather than snoozing during your presentation..?

If your answer is YES, then I would strongly recommend you to create an account for yourself with www.prezi.com

1)  Sign up with www.prezi.com and go through few basic lessons on how to create a prezi.

2)  Give a try by creating your own prezi (of course, with a lot of trial and errors).

3) If you really liked it and most importantly if you have a budget, go ahead with a licensed one. No, no, I am not paid by the Prezi to endorse their product.  🙂

Check out this video for knowing the Prezi in a nutshell. 

Note: Very soon, I will create one Prezi and upload in this space.
