About 10 years ago there was an online service called Wimpy Point. The idea was the Powerpoint was a bit overkill and people only really needed a “whimpy” version of presentation software. The idea was fairly unusual a decade ago, but now there are many different options for online presentation software. Guiding Tech has a list of 5 Online Powerpoint Alternatives that is worth taking a look at.
Here is the list from the post:
- Prezi – This is what presentation software would look like if it wasn’t descended from slide shows.
- Google Docs – I always thought that Google Docs was a stripped down version of Powerpoint, but checkout the writeup and video to see what it can do. The collaboration is also a great feature.
- 280 Slides – This looks almost like Keynote on OS X.
- Zoho Show – Part of Zoho office with some nifty remote presentations features.
- Slide Rocket – Seems to be fairly well designed and brings analytics to presentation software which can be very helpful when you are sharing things online.
