LiveSlides: Embed any web content in a PowerPoint presentation

LiveSlides: Embed any web content in a PowerPoint presentation | Articles re. education | Scoop.it

Kick off your presentation with a YouTube video. Then ask the audience a few ice breaker questions they can answer from their mobile phones. Throw in a live Twitter feed to keep them on their toes. Finish it off with an interactive Q&A session. All of that, and more, is possible when you can insert live web content into your presentation with LiveSlides.

 

Make presentations fun again:

Turn a passive audience into active learners. Interactive activities, like multiple choice questions, engage the audience making presentations more enjoyable.

Audience powered Q&A sessions

Tackle the most relevant issues your audience wants answered by letting them upvote the questions they care about and downvote the ones they don't.

Live-updating word clouds

Know what your audience is thinking. LiveSlides can help reveal prominent ideas by presenting these insights as a live word cloud visualization.
