What is the best SlideRocket alternative?

What is the best SlideRocket alternative? | Digital Presentations in Education | Scoop.it
EWC Presenter is a great SlideRocket Alternative. Slide Rocket is retiring most accounts by end of 2013 and removing projects.
Baiba Svenca's insight:

Presenter by Easy Web Content will be a great SlideRocket replacement, says the article. It compares the two tools and lets you see the advantages of using EWC Presenter.

Sliderocket is about to be retired. Presenter could be a very good replacement (as long as you don't mind learning yet another tool)!

Presentation Skills and Cat's Pajamas

Presentation Skills and Cat's Pajamas | Digital Presentations in Education | Scoop.it

5 Fun Presentation Skills Facts:

1.11% of people are “Terrified” of delivering a presentation. 7% “Feel Like Superman”. So, the majority of us fall somewhere in between. Not bad!

2.Just like with presentation design, we skew towards thinking we’re a bit better than average at delivering presentations.

3.We’re surprising good at practicing with 64% practicing their presentation at least twice. Good on you!

4.Above all else (designing nice slides, being energetic, funny or well rehearsed), your audience (38%) wants you to tell them a story, not lecture. Point taken!

5.When viewing presentations online, 75% prefer your slides to have voice-over rather than having to read them.

Baiba Svenca's insight:

Great presentation about the skills that we need to deliver a successful presentation.

I recommend it for watching in the classroom with students as the content is animated and easy to perceive. The presentation subtly asks a question if we sometimes do not overestimate our skills and rely too much on luck.
