Build presentations on-line: goodbye PowerPoint?

9 June 2008

They are growing everywhere, like mushrooms: they are the new web services that allow registered users to build presentations directly online, without the need for Microsoft PowerPoint, Apple Keynote, OpenOffice Impress.

Some time ago even Google decided to get into the online applications game, with an office suite called Google Docs. In addition to spreadsheets, documents, databases and drawings, it also includes a presentation module.

Then came SlideRocket, after a long wait, and it has obtained great reviews and comments.  Now it’s the turn of 280Slides, similar to SlideRocket, but with the possibility of downloading the presentation you make online to pptx format, which means PowerPoint 2007.
All these web tools require user registration, but it’s worth taking a look to see what levels of sophistication is possible with these tools, that only need a browser and an Internet connection to work.

All free.

On any operating system.

Perfect for the new netbooks.

You can find these tools by clicking on these links:
