Powerful Presentations With--or Without—PowerPoint: Evaluating Presentation Apps

Margaret (Meg) Butler, Georgia State University College of Law
Maureen Cahill, University of Georgia Law School
Sarah Jaramillo, Fordham University School of Law

We have all seen very good and very bad PowerPoint presentations.  Rather than describe the characteristics that make a presentation “good,” this session will demonstrate a variety of different presentation apps and consider the reasons for choosing a particular app.  We may use PowerPoint because it “comes with” Microsoft Word—but there are other options worth exploring.  The session will identify 8 factors to consider when evaluating presentation apps to identify the most apt app for the presentation you’re giving.  Alternative presentation apps include Prezi, Sparkol, Zoho Show, XMind, etc.  Additional proposers are Sarah Jaramillo from Fordham Law School and Maureen Cahill from University of Georgia School of Law.
