Create, Organize and Edit Cross-Format Presentations Online with Bunkr



Robin Good's insight:



Bunkr is a new web app which allows you to easily collect and organize all of your existing content and images and to build up visual presentations by easily dragging and dropping your selected items into a dedicated presentation area.


Bunkr slides can be easily edited, with text, images or video clips. Slides can be easily deleted, moved or rearranged intuitively.


An integrated library + search facility makes it easy to organize in a professional way all of your imported content so that you can use it for more than just one time.


The final presentation can be saved, previewed and exported to HTML5 iframe embed code, PDF or PPTX formats for final publication and distribution.



My initial impressions are quite positive as the tool feels fast, and quite intuitive (after you have seen the tutorial clips). From there everything works as expected and once you have imported your selected content, you can build a presentation in a matter of minutes.


Some features that would make Bunkr an immediate winner with me would be:


a) Ability to search for resources (content+images+video) out on the web


b) Option to import an image in a slide and have it automatically fill the whole slide


c) Better text control handling (small controls, low usability) to make it easy to edit text easily and format it faster


d) Some great display fonts



Free to use.

Upload and Share All Your PDF and PowerPoint Presentations With This New SlideShare Alternative: SlideOnline

Upload and Share All Your PDF and PowerPoint Presentations With This New SlideShare Alternative: SlideOnline | Presentation Tools | Scoop.it

Robin Good: If you are looking for a free and simple alternative to SlideShare you may want to give a look to this new free presentation sharing service which allows you to upload PowerPoint and PDF files without much hussle.


Presentations can be viewed in full screen, shared on social media, tagged and categorized, and made available for download if so desired.


The service looks clean, simple to use, and promising. (I needed one). 

 

Examples of other uploaded presentations: http://slideonline.com/presentation/latest 


Free to use.


N.B.: There is hardly any information on the site, "About", and "Learn More" links are not working, so be prudent before uploading your whole library here.

Update: As I have just learned from a timely email (who wrote me as  am writing this very Scoop - without knowing it) from Julian working on the development team, the only reason is that the service is just brand new... so, just give them time... and lots of feedback.

Create Presentation Playlists By Integrating PowerPoints, Data Files, Clips and Web Pages Seamlessly: SlideDog (Win)

Create Presentation Playlists By Integrating PowerPoints, Data Files, Clips and Web Pages Seamlessly: SlideDog (Win) | Presentation Tools | Scoop.it

Robin Good: SlideDog is a Windows PC-only downloadable software which allows you to assemble a seamless slideshow that is made up by multiple presentations as well as from files coming from different apps, including PDFs, videos and images.


With SlideDog you can use playlists to play multiple slide shows one after the other. You can also add other files and media such as videos, web pages, Presi presentations, spreadsheets and documents. A playlist can also be saved to disk for easy playback at a later time.


Key features: 


1) Support for PowerPoints, PDFs, videos, Prezi presentations, web pages, excel spreadsheets, word documents, flash animations and images.


2) SlideDog plays the files included in the playlist by using the most appropriate tools available. Some of the files will be played directly by SlideDog, while others will be played through an external application such as PowerPoint or the PowerPoint Viewer, though it will seem to viewers as all these files are played by one application. To achieve this SlideDog launches the files in the playlist in fullscreen without displaying the computer desktop or application specific loading screens to the viewers.


3) SlideDog uses a PowerPoint like multi-monitor output to provide meta information to the speaker during the presentation. It is able to show a normal presentation window on one screen, while showing an overview on the other one providing information like thumbnails of the next slides, slide notes and timers.


Free to download.
