Creating engaging presentations and slideshows is an art that requires a lot of creativity and dedication. From the choice of pictures and graphics to the wording of text illustrating them , everything in a good presentation speaks to the readers inner eye and immediately hook them in and most of all communicate the message in a clear, concise and direct way.
Creating good presentations also necessitates using a powerful platform, one that provides distinctive functionalities to set it apart from the rest. As digital immigrants, probably most of us have created their first presentation either through PowerPoint or Keynote but while these are still great presentation tools, there are also some wonderful alternatives to them. The most important thing about these alternatives beside the interesting features they have, is that they are cloud-based and can be accessed online from anywhere both on a desktop as well as mobile devices. Check out the 3 top ones below :
1- Google Presentation
Google Presentation is one of the top presentation softwares out there. It is also the easiest of them all and since Google's recent update, Presentation now includes some new interesting options that it did not support before including a widescreen view of presentations, and Editable Master Slide. Check out this page to learn more about Google Presentation.
2- Haiku Deck
This is probably the best addition to the web-based presentation tools. Haiku was initially working only on mobile devices but a couple of days ago the web version was launched; however to use it you need to request an invitation.
This is another great presentation tool that I have been using for awhile now. What I like the most about Prezi is the dynamism and interactivity it adds to the animation of the slides. Prezi slides can also be embedded in your classroom blog or website.
