Sample Student Presentations

The videos below are presentations by students in Communication, Media, and Persuasion courses. The COMM 1101 course requires three different types of presentations: informative, argumentative, and persuasive. Presentation assignments in the CMP 2201 course include the persuasive proposal, the technical presentation, and the crisis briefing.

Students viewing the videos should understand that the sample presentations are not "perfect." Each has been graded as above average. These videos are provided to help students in recognizing important delivery and content qualities that may be used to enhance their own presentations.
