Google Presentation, a Student’s Review
Last week, Google added onto their expanding arsenal of Microsoft Office-replacement products. Much like HackCollege favorites Google Docs and Google Spreadsheets, Google Presentation offers a stripped-down, online version of Microsoft’s ubiquitous PowerPoint.
As we mentioned in the third episode of the podcast, we are all about minimal functionality. If making a presentation for a class requires fancy slides and graphs, maybe you should read up on how to give a presentation. For our needs and wants, Google Presentation is all we need. And all that information is in the cloud, which is a huge plus.
Creating group presentations for a class is now a breeze, with the same collaboration features from Google Docs available. Soon, you will never even have to leave your room to meet your classmates. We will each live in pods controlled by machines…
For now, Google Presentation’s functionality is expectedly limited. We would like to see a few more font choices. It doesn’t have all of the bells and whistles of PowerPoint but hey, we don’t miss ‘em.
