Creating presentations with Mentimeter is simple! Watch this short video or read more below to get started.
Create a new presentation
When you're logged into your Mentimeter account, you can create a new presentation, (which will appear in your My Presentations page), in just a few simple steps.
Note: If you are a part of a Team, and would like to create a presentation for the team, under Shared Presentations, follow the same steps below.
On your Dashboard, click the button "+New presentation". This will prompt a template selection, where you can choose from our selection of pre-made presentations for your use or create a blank presentation.
Give your presentation a name and click Create presentation.
You will be taken directly to the Edit view, where you can start to add slides.
Add slides to your presentation
To interact with your audience using Mentimeter, you can fill your presentation with interactive and content slides. You can also add a fun Quiz competition to your presentation and our Q&A feature to enable the audience to ask questions directly to the presenter. If you have any of our paid subscriptions, you will also be able to import an existing presentation to Mentimeter.
How to create a new slide:
Click on "+ New slide" in the top left corner of the edit view.
2. Select the type of slide you want to add in the slide menu. Click on the links below to learn more about each slide type:
Start your presentation
When you are happy with your presentation, you can start presenting by clicking Present in the top right corner:
This will make the presentation full screen and take you to the Presentation view. You can now control the presentation and go through the slides using the arrow keys and keyboard shortcuts, or by using the presentation menu. To open the presentation menu, hover your mouse cursor over the bottom-left corner of the slide.
Get started quickly with a template
If you want some help getting started, we have a vast collection of examples and pre-made templates in the templates section located in your Dashboard.
If you prefer to start building your presentation from a template, click Templates instead of New presentation. Use them as they are, or edit them so that they suit the content you want to share with your audience.
