Earlier this year, as part of our Regional Support Centre summer school event we showed a number of WBL staff (amongst others) how they could staff how they could benefit from working collaboratively online using Google Docs and spreadsheets (If you missed the session but are interested to know more please get in touch).
Anyway I mentioned during the session that there was talk at the time of Google extending this package to include support for presentations too. Well this addition to the Google docs set has now been launched – you can learn more at http://www.google.com/google-d-s/intl/en/tour1.html
If you're new to Google Docs, you can view this short video to learn more:
“Just like Google documents and spreadsheets, presentations are stored securely online, so you can access them from anywhere using only a web browser. Working together with one or more people to put together a killer presentation? Not a problem, just like with documents and spreadsheets, you can collaborate with others and see everyone's changes in real time.”
I expect I’ll use this tool in the future to show how it works so if you keep posted you’ll find out more!
