Presentation tools allow you to publish and share presentations in a range of formats online.
Animoto is a great site for quickly creating professional looking videos from your images. It is a great tool to use with students because it allows them to focus on content creation rather than trying to learn an editing or manipulation tool. In the school context, Animoto For Education is ideal tool for students to create their own booktrailers, digital stories or music videos.
Make a video of your own at Animoto.
authorSTREAM is a web-based PowerPoint presentation sharing platform which also allows you to add audio to your presentation.
Glogster allows you to combine images, video, music, photos and audio to create interactive posters. Glogster encourages students to gather their information, synthesize it, remix it and then create their original presentation. It is an excellent alternative to the traditional classroom poster project by providing an online tool that is fun to use (and it’s not messy or bulky).

Prez is an online presentation and story telling tool that uses a single canvas instead of traditional series of slides. The images, text, videos and other objects are placed on the canvas and users can zoom in and out.
Below is an example of a Prezzi created by a student.
SlideShare is a site where you can host your presentations and share with others. Slideshare is ideal for those who want to embed Presentations in their posts and websites rather than upload their PowerPoints directly and insert as a link.
It’s also an excellent site for locating Presentations created by others.
Scribd allows you to upload your MS Word documents, PDFs, PowerPoints and then share them within an embedded viewer on your blog.
