Prezi - create a presentation that is ZOOMING!

Getting tired of the old linear PowerPoint presentations? Then switch to Prezi and start to create fantastic, brain-friendly presentations. Use the "zebra wheel" to customize, non-linear creative presentations that can kept for online access or downloaded for personal or professional use. Include pictures, videos, and more. Free presentations for anyone and extended options for teachers and those in Education.

Here's the Prezi intro on what it can do:

Weebly - create a webpage

VoiceThread - create a slideshow presentation/group conversation with sound/voiceover

The end of the boring slide show! VoiceThread allows users to share images, documents, and videos with added narration by the authors and others.

PowToon -

This site allows for the creation of web-based presentations that include animated videos and amazing content. Powtoon is ideal for those seeking a nice alternative to more traditional presentation tools. Simple to use, it makes creating engaging, interesting, and exciting animated videos extremely easy. Users can create and show presentations straight from the Powtoon site, or opt for the export to Youtube option, or even download a MP4 video format for use offline.

Here's one I did for an online project:

Haiku Deck -

Haiku Deck started as an app and is now a website that makes presentations simple, beautiful, and fun. Users have access to over 35 million free images and six free themes. Share work online or download final work as a Power Point or PDF for offline presenting. Haiku Deck’s simple interface reinforces more “zen-like” presentations, encouraging more use of visuals than text in basic presentation templates.

ThingLink -

Make your images completely interactive by adding links, videos, text, and more with your computer, smartphone, or tablet. Add your own picture and embed information or pull images from other sites (with permission) and add facts to those. Take a regular digital image and make it come alive!

Canva -

Create dynamic flyers, presentations, banners, infographics, graphics for social media, and other designs incorporating vibrant stock backgrounds, photos, graphics, and fonts, as well as images you upload. Publish completed projects as PDFs or PNGs, or share to Facebook and Twitter. The site includes helpful short how-to and design tip

Projeqt -

Projeqt describes itself as "dynamic presentations for a real time world." Use it to create linear and stacked slide presentations for any type of event. Embed images, text, documents, or add data from your favorite social media tools.

Easel.ly -

Easel.ly allows users to quickly create infographics and share visual ideas online. Easel.ly has an expansive library of elements and visual objects that can be added to personalize infographics of all kinds.
