Back to school – maybe it’s time to take a fresh look at Powerpoint with pptPlex

Try itI've been playing around with a new Office add-in for several months now.  pptPlex introduces a fresh look at how Powerpoint can be used for presentations and teaching.  Have you ever been frustrated with the typical linear format of a powerpoint presentation?  Would it be useful to think of your content as being on a great big canvas that allows you to focus in on the relevant content at the appropriate time and re-visit it quickly and simply.

I could go on, but if you are looking at bringing a new style to your presentations, lectures, briefings and/or tutorials then pptPlex could be for you.  On the site there's access to the download, FAQ, Blog and discussions about pptPlex.  My favourite things about pptPlex are:

  1. Using live content (documents, spreadsheets etc)
  2. Zooming in and out of slides
  3. Organising presentations into sections for the "Tell them what you're going to tell them, tell them, tell them what you've told them"
  4. Navigating through the content the way I want to navigate - not just left to right


Take a look at the video for a snapshot of what it does:


I've also just read that some one is using a Nintendo Wii controller to navigate.



There are more videos here.
