Alternatives to Powerpoint

Power Point by Michael Scott.


Smore is of my new favorite tech tools. I use to create newsletters, flyers, and even presentations for class. I enjoy the simple interface and professional appeal. This is the tool I used to create all of these tutorials. It is easy to use, share, and embed. I also like that I can include links, images, videos, and more to any flyer. I can even add RSVPs if I am doing a campus event or a google form for opinion and feedback! Love it!



A fantastic tool to keep all media in one place. You can embed videos, images, text, and more into one space that students worth through.
