Microsoft PowerPoint has been around for over 25 years. From school to college, we’ve all relied on PowerPoint and have shared a sort of a love-hate relationship with it. Even today there are millions of people who still use this tool for their presentations, even though we’re no longer limited to it.
Today, there are a bunch of presentation creators that are just as good or even better. Here’s a roundup of some of the handy yet free presentation tools you can use to make stunning presentations.
This tool lets you create and present your ideas on a large and zoomable virtual canvas. All you have to do is arrange your videos, images and ideas on this canvas and let them naturally flow as they tell your story. Prezi stands out because of its concept of Pathway Points that give a visual cinematic appeal to the presentation instead of the old-school use of slides. You can use it on multiple devices including desktop, iPad, iPhone and on Cloud too.
