Office Sway – New Presentation Tool

Office Sway – New Presentation Tool

Microsoft’s new presentation tool, Sway seems pretty promising. It looks like a combination of a PowerPoint and a Prezi.

Sway gives you a canvas where you can add content from your cloud storage, your devices or your social networks such as Facebook, Twitter, YouTube or OneDrive. There are many styles and layouts that you can choose from. Even you do not choose, Sway will suggest you some styles based on the colors in your presentation. When you are done, you can share your presentation with a link, or get the embed code or share your Sways on social media platforms. The best thing is that your Sway will always look perfect on all devices that you use.

The students can use this tool for submitting their projects or presenting a topic. Let’s see if Sway will replace some of the tools that we get used to seeing in conferences.
