Projectqted is a new presentation builder that has won many awards including SXSWi as 2012 Best Educational resource. It is a new tool that you should try if you’re using online presentations and compare to prezi. ““Projeqt lets you create what you could call interactive slideshows… I might describe it as a more sophisticated Prezi that’s easier to create and less confusing to watch.” -Larry Ferlazzo’s websites of the day”
Haiku Deck is one of my all time favorite quick presentation makers when I just have to share something meaningful with my class and only have a few moments to pull it together. (For example, if I realize that students don’t know something valuable, etc.) One of the best things about Haiku Deck is its incredible search feature for Creative Commons and automatic citation. If you’re 1:1 ipad, this free app is a must have. They are beta testing and online version that should be available soon. Great tool.
Google presentations is another alternative for presentations online. This can be collaborative (unlike some other options) and track changes, however, is a less beautiful version of Keynote/ Powerpoint. Google presentations has made dramatic improvements recently as evidenced by these templates that you can use and modify. If you’re going to use Google presentations, I’d recommend starting with a template so the attractive features are already set for you.
Prezi is a fun online presentation program used by many teachers and students. Here’s a link to a great tutorial to get you started along with tutorials and other information about how to use this in the classroom.
If you’ve integrated sliderocket (now becoming ClearSlide) into Google apps for edu, you’ll no longer have Google integration or free accounts past the end of the year. Sliderocket was acquired by clear slide.
“Thank you to everyone who has inquired about SlideRocket’s free educational initiative through Google Apps. As the integration of SlideRocket into ClearSlide has progressed, it has become apparent that a shift in our approach toward educational accounts is necessary and appropriate. Specifically, due to both technical and practical reasons, we will no longer be integrating with Google Apps or offering free educational accounts beyond the end of the year.”
