Multimedia presentations are a great way for students to "show what they know" about a particular topic. If coupled with actually having to present their knowledge to a live audience, they allow students to practice their public speaking skills. Finally, multimedia presentations allow students to hone their planning, organizing, researching, and creativity skills, while at the same time, becoming proficient in a variety of presentation applications.

The number of easy to use presentation applications available to students for free on line keeps growing. Students are no longer limited to just using flat, linear, left to right, slide based presentations. Many of the tools listed below come with snazzy templates, animated backgrounds, zooming capabilities, embedded video features and more that open the doors for students to get creative.
