We’re all very familiar with PowerPoint for building presentations. But what happens when you find yourself on a computer without access to PowerPoint and you need to create, edit or view an important presentation? For many people this could be a real disaster.
Who / What is 280 Slides?
280 Slides is a brilliant product that in some ways is much easier to use than PowerPoint and because it is an online service, it helps solve this potentially huge problem.
From their website:
‘Create beautiful presentations, access them from anywhere, and share them with the world. With 280 Slides, there’s no software to download and nothing to pay for – and when you’re done building your presentation you can share it any way you like.’
What I Like Most
What I like about these guys is they know what you want when it comes to delivery. In a few seconds you can convert your presentation to Powerpoint 2007 format, link to and embed your presentation anywhere you like or publish straight to Slideshare – what more could you want?
Building Presentations and Uploading Into Litmos
So for those of you who struggle using PowerPoint or find yourself in a place where you don’t have access to it, use 280Slides.com to build your presentations, convert to .ppt format and upload straight in to the Litmos learning management system.
Also worth a mention is that 280 Slides made it in to The Guardian newspaper’s Top 100 sites for the year ahead list which came out December 18th – congratulations!
