As someone who creates and shares presentations frequently, I'm excited to add SlideRocket to my tech toolkit of cloud-based presentation tools. It's slick, collaborative and available for free with a Gmail or Google Apps for Educators account. A refreshing change from Google Presentation, SlideRocket is feature-rich and fast. Here are a few of my favorite features:
- Vivid themes
- A sophisticated Inspector Panel which includes opacity and pinpoint rotation of images, text and videos
- Access to stock photography or options to upload your own images
- Embedded video
- Fun plugins which include a real-time Twitter feed.
If you decide to try this tool yourself, remember to be diligent about saving. I did experience some problems with this, perhaps because I've gotten spoiled by not having to save a Google Presentation, or perhaps because I kept getting logged off due to inactivity, but it is something to note:
I'm a newbie with this tool, but I'm sharing a quick presentation I put together to guide a recent webinar, Cool Tools for Vocabulary.
