Making presentations may sometimes be a tedious task. So, here are a few resources to help you make the job enjoyable and easy.
Prezi is a presentation software that allows you to present ideas that are visual, creative, and interactive. It is essentially a storytelling tool that uses Zooming User Interface that allows users to zoom in and out whilst navigating through the information rather than from slide to slide. You can use it directly on your web browser or download Prezi to use it on your desktop or laptop. It is cloud-based which means that your presentation can be accessed from any of your devices that have Prezi installed. You can choose from four account types provided based on how you want to use Prezi. There is a ‘Public’ option that is available for free but your presentations will be publicly visible. By choosing the other options such as ‘Enjoy’, ‘Pro’ or ‘Teams’, you can make your presentations private, edit your prezis offline, and get Prezi for an organisation.
Oomfo is a Powerpoint plugin that lets you create animated and interactive charts. All you have to do is download the plugin and it will be available on Powerpoint under the Insert tab. It’s the easier alternative to the default Powerpoint charts as it not only allows you to create multiple charts but also allows you to create 2D and 3D charts.
Knovio is a presentation tool with a twist. With Knovio, you can convert your presentations into interesting videos just using a web browser and a webcam and/or a microphone. You can now bring your presentations to life by making a personal video and you can also add your very own commentary to make it even more special. Sign up is free and Knovio is also available to iPhone and iPad users from the App store.
Vacasmo is a multimedia presentation tool that allows you to combine photos, videos, documents, PDFs and so on to create a video. With Vcasmo, you can now create professional illustrative presentations. Their plans include a free version and a paid version.
