PowerPoint – Mastering the canvas


Every presentation these days involves Microsoft PowerPoint.  After a while no matter how much multimedia you add to it, your presentation can still look a bit dull and boring.  In order to make your next presentation a bit different why not try pptPlex – a PowerPoint plugin that rebuilds a set of slides into a single ‘zoomable canvas’.

I saw this used by James Senior of Microsoft at the Misco Expo in October 2008 on a presentation about SBS, EBS and MS Server 2008.  It worked really well and added a new dimension to the way in which the presentation was delivered.  It also allowed him to skip around and to show areas that were collections of slide that fit together like a jigsaw but could then be zoomed in.
