Why I favour Google Presentations
Posted October 17, 2012on:
When I have to give slide presentations, I put in a fair bit of effort to doll up my slides.
I remove as much text as possible and try to make them visual. This leaves room for the viewer to interpret (and share that interpretation) and for me to tell a story.
Here are screen grabs of two of my better slides from a deck I used earlier this week.
I use Google Presentations almost exclusively and illustrate with CC-licenced images from ImageCodr.
I like Google Presentations because 1) they are a bare bones tool that help me focus on the message, 2) I can share the presentation online, 3) I can share it and still work on it, 4) I can open the presentation up to critique or build it collaboratively, and 5) I make offline copies (typically PDFs) as backups.
