    Abstract

    The increasing accessibility of sensors has made it possible to create instructional tools able to present immediate feedback to their users. In order to study how this type of instruction can have an effect on learning, we created the Presentation Trainer: a prototype designed to help users to develop their nonverbal communication skills for public speaking. In this paper we present our work in progress on the Presentation Trainer, which includes two user studies. The studies showed that participants would gladly use the Presentation Trainer to prepare for oral presentations, and pointed out to some considerations required for the design of tools able to effectively support a complex learning task through immediate feedback.
