A New Presentation Platform Worth Looking At… Reveal.js and http://Slid.es

Tired of the same old PowerPoint presentations? So over the hype about Prezi? Want to be able to share presentations quickly without the hassle of attaching files or using services like Slideshare that may mess up your slide formatting?

Meet Reveal.JS and http://slid.es.

Reveal.JS is a platform created by Hakim El Hattab for web-based, HTML presentations. Its design is simple and elegant, and it has many of the features you look for in PowerPoint and Prezi. The best part: the presentation is right in your browser. No more dealing with proprietary .pptx files.

For those who just want to plug in text and images (and don’t want to mess around with coding), check out the web-based platform for quick WYSIWYG editing: http://slid.es.

For those with coding skills in HTML, CSS, and Javascript, the source code is available at Github.

Give it a look and let us know what you think. How would you use this as a student or teacher? What new possibilities does this make available?
