5 Online Alternative to PowerPoint That Work

Microsoft PowerPoint is the most feature-rich presentation tool and widely used, but it has a high price tag. If you want a free or affordable alternative that’s online and gets the job done, there are some nice options available. These alternatives may not have all the features of PowerPoint, but they should be sufficient for most users. Note: All the following options are web based, so no software to download!

1. Prezi

If you want to ditch the conventional presentation format and bring in more creativity into your keynote, check out Prezi. While you can use it as an alternative to PowerPoint, the way you create presentations with this tool is different, as is the output.

Check out this presentation created using Prezi by Chris Anderson for his speech in a TED conference.
