A couple of weeks ago when I was preparing an orientation session for the new students, I hesitated whether using PowerPoint or the other digital formats. I happened to find a Web application namely SlideRocket with more distinctive transition effects so I have incorporated my content with some music (at the moment I have disabled this feature as below):
Using SlideRocket is simple just by importing the original PowerPoint file from your local directory (see the panel below). Most of the slide content (PowerPoint 2007) is retained (but not all fonts). You can further edit the content in the panel and the slide transition effects are wonderful and comparable with Keynote in Mac.
The post is titled as “Presentation 2.0” due to SlideRocket is a kind of Web 2.0 tool. Just want to share my students that many options are available for a digital presentation!
