When I reviewed some tools in that article Forget PowerPoint: 13 Online Presentation Apps as many other gadget reviews, certainly most of these Internet applications are based on Flash or Ajax like what I said before, I found a description “Focused more on larger corporate customers with a monthly budget for little bit higher-end needs. Provides templates for speedy creation” and Presentation Engine. Enterprise high-end needs? Wasn’t this what we always thought of? So I viewed samples and made its free test drive. Its step-by-step creation with templates was really easy, and the output was exquisite. But I finally got its so-called “Presentation Engine” idea: just stunning multimedia presentation in Flash for rich-media advertising.
Despite rich presentations are used for kind of promotion, they aren’t just ads. More than general slideshows, corporate presentations have such function of e-learning, with efficient knowledge management. So we really need interactive and intuitive features in online presentation applications for better support of corporate learning and training. That’s the powerful engine for corporate presentations. The best solution I think could be integration of corporate LMS development and stable online presentation platform.
