I tried ZOHO first......what a mistake. I tried to upload a powerpoint presentation--no go. I got an error message. So I go to the help section and in the forums I find post after post of people having serious problems with ZOHO presentations. The responses from ZOHO weren't impressive either. The experience did not impress me.
I checked out PREZI. Since I don't remember much I think it's safe to say it was either overwhelming with technical stuff or just didn't light my fire.
I absolutely adore Google Chrome. I am not fond of the presentation app. Maybe that's a bit harsh. If I created a presentation in the Google Presentation app I'm sure I'd be okay with it. Like the other apps in Google Chrome, there aren't as many bells and whistles with formatting. I uploaded a presentation I already had. I lost quite a few of the colors, transitions and special effects in the upload.
As you noticed in the Beyond Method #6....Sliderocket and I have become friends.
The above presentation is one I have developed as part of monthly computer classes we offer our patrons and the public. For this particular project, I used the My PC Series website. Great site for info for anyone who is involved in teaching computer classes. http://www.mypcprogram.com/
I discovered this site during a webinar on WebJunction. Great material and free to anyone. I have a feeling I'm going to get a lot of mileage from that site. Since I don't want to sell Microsoft products to anyone, I took advantage of the site's offer to edit or modify the information as needed.
