Watch Out PowerPoint! Free Flash-based Presentation Tool

LibrarianInBlack (4/16/2007) points us to a free
flash-based presentation tool that can supercharge
class presentations and tutorials. Called Spresent,
the application allows you to easily create and edit
Flash presentations online.

In addition to offering you the ability to create Flash
presentations without learning Flash, Spresent has
full web functionality; you can create a presentation
on the Web and present it on the Web or on a desktop.

After you create a presentation, you can save it to
a secure "My private folders" section of the Spresent
web site and edit it from any computer with an Internet
connection. If you want to share your presentation,
you can save it to "My shared folders," notfiy others
about the new content, or send it to them as an HTML file.

Check out the demos on the Spresent web site.
