Innovative New Web Tool Combines Video and Powerpoint
UPDATE July 1, 2015: Sad to say that 9Slides was acquired by Limeade.com and is not available for sale at this time. I have been told they are integrating 9Slides into their own employement engagement platform. Sad to see it disappear
Traditional online presentation and video tools lack something very important to a successful delivery – You! An innovative new web tool that adds you and your wonderful presence to your story is now out of beta and ready for you to explore.
Introducing 9Slides.com. By combining the personal connection that video can provide with a well-crafted PowerPoint presentation 9Slides produces an effective viewing experience that can be customized by the viewer. This is not embedding video into PowerPoint. This is a synchronized, side-by-side view that is customizable and adaptable to match the preferences and interests of each viewer. The viewer decides where they want to put their focus -on the video, the PowerPoint or equally between both. You are able to repeat, freeze or go backward or forward as you desire.
