Ready to ditch slideshows altogether? Animoto blends images and music together using motion graphics, effects and transitions to create videos of your imagery using their patent-pending "Cinematic Artificial Intelligence" software,which analyzes the pictures and music that you input and decides on the proper effects and transitions to match both. The end result is better for sharing your photos and not as good for professional presentations, but we can still imagine a few good business uses for this technology. For example, the Animoto video could be used to kick off another presentation or speech.

external image slideshare.gifSlideshare, a service often referred as "YouTube for Presentations", has expanded beyond PowerPoint slides into other territories like Word documents and Excel spreadsheets.
You can now upload both .doc and .xls files on to SlideShare in addition to PDF and ppt format.
This brings Slideshare in direct competition with other document sharing services like Scribd, DocStoc, Zoho Share and, to some extent, eSnips.

Comparison of Document Sharing Services

Zoho Share
File Size Limit
100 MB
50 MB
3 MB
Allows Anonymous Uploads
Supports Office 2007 Formats
Flash Viewer Size (for embedding)
127 KB
29 KB

The following Google Trends chart compares the traffic across different document sites but it may very-well change in future as Slideshare has ventured into waters that were earlier dominated by Scribd.

Like other document sharing services, Slideshare too converts your Office documents in Adobe Flash format for viewing or embedding but they also create a plain text transcript of the document that spiders can read and understand. Therefore any content uploaded on Slideshare has a better chance of ranking in search engines.
The transcripts also come handy when translating documents.


Here you can upload your presentations and share them with your friends (publicly or privately).
You can even add video and/or audio by recording it directly within the site!
SlideSix supports a ton of different presentation formats:
  • PPTX(PowerPoint 2007)
  • PPT/PPS(PowerPoint 97/2000/XP)
  • PDF(Adobe Acrobat)
  • ODP/SXI(Open Office)
  • MOV (QuickTime)


- Choose your design.
- Add photos, videos, words, music.
- Email, blog or print it.


- create video montages of images
- captioning and editing tools are easy to use

- only one default soundtrack so you have to upload your own audio clips

enriching your videos with interactivity.
IDDIX is a new video platform that allows users to add all kinds of webcontent to their video timeline. This new video platform will enrich the online video experience in ways never before seen on the web.

How does VIDDIX work?

The panel on the left is used to display video. The VIDDIX upload system supports all sorts of raw formats (.avi, .wmv, .mov, .mpg, .mpeg, .mp4, .flv) and converts them to FLV for optimal webperformance.

The panel on the right (iPanel) is used to display the extra web elements that are connected to the video. These web elements can range from a simple text with links to full flash objects and forms.

- Upload your video and support notes, images, etc.
- show slides next to video
- offer a PDF download with extra information
- ask a question which can be answered instantly by using a poll!

- View on double presentation screens.

- Publish to any webpage

Video into Powerpoints
A VoiceThread is a collaborative, multimedia slide show that holds images, documents, and videos and allows people to leave comments in 5 ways - using voice (with a mic or phone), text, audio file, or video (via a webcam). Share a VoiceThread with friends, students, and colleagues for them to record comments too.
Users can doodle while commenting, use multiple identities and pick which comments are shown through moderation. VoiceThreads can even be embedded on web sites and exported to MP3 players or DVDs as archival movies.
With VoiceThread, group conversations are collected and shared in one place from anywhere in the world. All with no software to install.


Fast layout and customisation of photos, video, text and music.
Add media hotspots, narrate interactivity. Publish to any webpage
  • Use COLLAGEto quickly produce dynamic interactive panoramas with hot-spots.
  • Use STUDIOto build a personalized media presentation... and, place it in your COLLAGE.
  • Use EXPRESSto build presentations with dynamic content from RSS feeds and online albums.
  • Tap into CUT-OUT Express to use your photos as frames for slideshows.


turning bookmarks and feeds into interactive slideshows
If instead of bullet points, you're discussing web content, the application from Diigo, makers of the social bookmarking application (also called Diigo), can help. With WebSlides, you can turn your bookmarks or feeds into interactive web content. The application works with their bookmarking tool to automatically allow the creation of slideshows from a list of your bookmarks. The RSS option may be less useful as it only allows the import of one RSS feed, not an entire OPML file.

YouTube Video Wizard (YTV)
Use this to insert YouTube videos into a PowerPoint slide. All you need to do is to provide the YouTube video URL that appears in the browser address bar, the rest is taken care of by the YTV Wizard.
Note: YouTube videos are streamed so a live internet connection is required to playback the video during the slideshow. Use the free FlashBack add-in to play/rewind the YouTube video automatically.

  • Embedding

external image 2598243614_4067cd09c9_t.jpgZoho and external image 2597412355_eb62c8b342_m.jpg google docs slideshows can be created, edited, and viewed online. For sharing with others, though, the popular "YouTube for presentations" web site, SlideShare,logo_header.gif is a great choice. Here, you can upload your slideshows for everyone to see, download, or embed, depending on how you set the permissions.
If done well, slideshows don't have to be boring - they can both entertain and inform. And it's a lot easier to get your message across when everyone isn't sleeping through your presentation, isn't it?
