According to’s most recent definition of a panorama, a panorama is an extended pictorial representation of a scene, often exhibited a part at a time and made to pass continuously before the spectators. That is exactly what this commercial was about. Within this commercial the advantages of using panoramas as a teaching technique were effectively mentioned to its viewers. The panorama included a film strip for the visual presentation, a book that was used as background content and or to follow the filmstrip, and a record program for the narration of the panorama. To be used as an effective teaching technique, the teachers would display the visual of the panorama to the front of the class. The panorama contained the most recent photos and succinct content in regards to the subject matter. After a few seconds, the slide would move on to the next photo. This film is useful because it demonstrates what appears to be a very old-fashioned form of our modern-day PowerPoint presentations and how it was used as an effective teaching technique. The reason this was an effective teaching technique was because the photos were relatively new (as opposed to those in older books) and the information content was strong in quality and up to date. This is useful to students in the modern information infrastructure because communicating information in the most efficient manner is a necessity; often, students create PowerPoint presentations with irrelevant content, too much content, or not enough content; this debilitates the learning experience. However, if one can implement the characteristics of useful, concise, and current information into their presentations, the delivery of information to the audience is more captivating and efficient-which enhances learning. From this video we can learn very old but efficient methods of effectively communicating information to an audience using multimedia presentations.
