What's The Best Online Presentation Creation Tool?

What's The Best Online Presentation Creation Tool? | Digital Presentations in Education | Scoop.it
Creating a mesmerizing presentation is more than stitching slides together, sure, but a good presentation tool certainly helps keep your audience's attention. Some of the best are on the web and easy to use, too, and don't require you download a pricey app to use. This week, we want to know which ones you think are the best.

Bob Connelly's curator insight, January 25, 12:31 PM

There are some great tips in these things we should stop saying. I disagree with one in particular though: I do think presentations can (and often should!) be interactive. That doesn't make it a workshop but can make it engaging.

MagneticSpeaking's curator insight, Today, 8:26 AM

This is very informative for anyone who speaks in public. The moral of this Slideshare is to keep quiet about your internal dialogue. When you speak, everything you say should benefit your audience. When you ask the audience to sympathize with you, you take away from their experience. Sharing stories and taking questions is great, apologizing for being unprepared and talking about yourself is not. Great article.

Vimodi - visual discussion app

Vimodi - visual discussion app | Digital Presentations in Education | Scoop.it

Vimodi has a unique nonlinear viewer and was designed so that content conforms to the discussion - and not the other way around. Its distinctive feature is that it lets you discuss content non-linearly rather than the linear format of PowerPoint or KeyNote. Perfect for business meetings, sales meetings or teaching where you want to keep the discussion open yet know in advance what the key areas for discussion should be.

The variety of options on offer, and the range of capabilities are wide, diverse and individually tailored to the needs of presenters. The day of one-package-does-it-all is over. Microsoft themselves seem to have realised it and ar pitching Sway as the successor to Powerpoint. Interesting times ahead.
