Prezi is an interactive way to create something similar to Google Slides with more movement. 


Canva allows you to create digital posters with thousands of templates or from scratch. 

Google Slides

A classic! You’ve used it a million times. Tried and true.

Slides Carnival

Slides Carnival helps you spice up those old Google Slides with free downloadable templates. They’re easy to use and give so much more variety. 


Animoto allows you to create short videos to support your presentation. You can play and pause as you need to talk, or play a video during your presentation.


Thinglink lets you upload and image and “tag” other links to it. It turns any image into an interactive presentation.


Very similar to Canva, linked above. Just a different set of templates, fonts, etc.


Powtoon creates animated videos using drawings and their own animations. These are really neat!

Google Drawings

Google Drawings begin with a blank template and allow you to create a digital poster from scratch.
