Review and presentation on GoogleDocs Presentation tool

Google has added a presentation package, similar to PowerPoint, to their free online collaborative tools suite, GoogleDocs.

The presentation tool in GoogleDocs is simple and lacks many features – it offers limited choices for fonts, color and layout and doesn’t offer the ability to “build” a sequence to demonstrate a concept. However, it does allow multiple people to edit the same slides in real time.

Slate has a review of the software and, at the end of the article, a PowerPoint presentation presented as a movie that summarizes the article – it’s a good example of ways that presentation tools can be used to emphasize points or clarify concepts.
