I created these MS Sway Portfolio Presentations for an Augmented Reality course project. Each presentation contains some form of interactivity.

NOTE: The "PicQuotes" (images with text overlays) with technical writer limericks were created for an assignment in a Technical Writing class, meant to define what a technical communicator does. These original poems were written in the classic "bawdy pub style," which is tongue-in-cheek fun and not meant to be serious. Enjoy them with the backdrop photos from the Adirondack Mountains of northern New York. They are sprinkled throughout the presentation.
