Practice and feedback are two of the most important aspects to develop public speaking skills. Having always a human tutor available providing learners with feedback regarding their presentations skills is not feasible. The Presentation Trainer (PT) is a system designed to help learners to develop basic skills for public speaking. It allows learners to practice their presentation while receiving real-time feedback regarding their non-verbal communication. After practicing their presentation, the PT presents learners with the opportunity to reflect on their performance.
