Hurray! I haven’t checked the new features in Google Docs in awhile, but tonight I was uploading some documents and decided to peak at the presentation piece.Â When I last tried to use it I got frustrated because you couldn’t download the presentations into PowerPoint.Â They have fixed that and now your presentations can swing either way!Â I was sure it was just a matter of time and now it’s here!
You still can’t have all the functionality as far as animations and themes but you can create your basic slides and get all your text set up.Â You can also share with a team and track changes.
If you have a student who doesn’t have Microsoft Office on their home computer this is a way for them to get a bit ahead as long as they have access to the internet.
I saw a cool iGoogle application at the library conference last week. We need to talk about it. I can see us getting all over it for next year!!!
