Cool Stuff!

I have recently been on the prowl for some new and innovative websites and have found the following gems currently being used in schools. Gone are the days of endless powerpoint presentations produced every time a computer lab is free. Move over Microsoft because the following online presentation software has taken over.

VoiceThread enables you to create presentations from photos and documents and add a soundtrack. What’s amazing is that viewers are able to leave their own audio comments on each slide.

Glogster creates presentations in the form of a poster that can contain not only text and graphics, but sound and video too.

SlideShare is like an online version of PowerPoint where you can upload your PowerPoint presentation. Unlike PowerPoint presentations, SlideShare ones can be embedded in your blog or web page.

Why not try these next time you make a presentation?
