Ways to Present

PowerPoint, Prezi, Slideshare, Powtoons

PowerPoint is the most commonly used tool to share presentations. You have the ability to add / remove slides, put transitions on slides, add effects to slides, and much more. The greatest benefit of PowerPoint is that it is extremely easy to use. You have the ability to do whatever you want to manipulate each slide of your presentation. Although, PowerPoint has its downfalls. One downfall I would attribute to PowerPoint is that it could have better visuals that could make ones presentation more interesting.

Prezi is another way you can share presentations. Unlike PowerPoint it is very visually appealing. There are pre-made templates and you have the ability to create your own. On prezi you also have the ability to manipulate the theme or colors. Along with that you can manipulate the "path" which is where each slide is going to go to next. It is very easy to use and a huge benefit is that it is free!

Slideshare is a slide hosting service. This type of service is where people can upload presentations publicly or privately. When people upload their presentations publicly it allows anyone who visits slideshare to view that presentation. This site is used a lot for finding more about a certain topic and viewing how others put that topic together in a presentation. Slideshare is an extremely useful source and I 100% recommend using it.  

Are you looking for a fun way to show a presentation? Well Powtoon is the place to go! It's like a short video. You can add characters, images, props and more. The characters even have animations that make it come to life! It's free but you have the option of upgrading which will allow you more effects, transitions, and characters.

Having a good presentation is all about what you make of it. If you are in a work place I would suggest PowerPoint or Prezi. For a class presentation I like something fun would be to do a powtoon. Whatever you do you want to make it visually appealing and make sure its not too wordy or flashy. Remember sometimes less is more, but not enough can be harmful to a good presentation.

All in all like something about each site. Powerpoint is the most used but not always the best visually. Prezi is better visually but doesn't have as many tools and can be hard to use. I would use each website outside of school and found them all very helpful!
