The go-to for visual presentations is usually Microsoft’s PowerPoint—it’s easy, familiar and works well in many situations. However, there are other programs that may be more effective for different needs. Here are some alternatives.
Apple Keynote—may be helpful for Mac users who need a polished presentation.
SlideRocket—allows different people to work on a presentation at the same time. The project is saved in the cloud and can be downloaded at any time.
Prezi—lets you zoom in and out of larger graphics.
Google Slides—makes collaborating easy and is included in the cloud-based G Suite package.
