As the school year approaches it is time to start organizing and planning for lectures and presentations. Most people turn to the traditional PowerPoint but there are some other programs out there that can do neat presentations for free or cheap.
Emaze is one of these sites.
Emaze is a platform that allows users to build professional looking presentations with various backgrounds. Aside from creating your own presentations, there are millions already available to use.
Pro members can download and collaborate, but free members can basically just make slides and save them at emaze. There is a pro plan available for education as well that is half the price of the business plan. The paid version is monthly and there are different sized accounts. But, I don't do anything that isn't free, so I will stick with the freebie.
I found some really nice presentations that relate to content I plan to teach this year. Why re-invent the wheel?
I am impressed by the ease of use of the site and the availability of so many presentations to be used. Teachers can find a lot of sources for their classes and can build presentations as well. I can also envision a teacher using this in a class as a means of a project.
