Earlier this month I shared a presentation both face-to-face and online via Ustream giving an overview of the Storychaser’s Mobile Learning Collaborative. Instead of using Keynote (which I generally prefer for presentations) or PowerPoint, I created the presentation for this session using a Google Presentation. I was delighted to realize every Google Presentation is automatically formatted to be mobile-ready, displaying well on an iPhone or iPod Touch. I haven’t tried or seen one on another type of Smartphone, but am guessing they’ll format well on other mobile platforms as well. This is a screenshot of my preso on my iPhone.
There is great value in composing and sharing ideas in the cloud. This is the first presentation I’ve created entirely on a netbook, using Ubuntu Netbook Remix as my operating system. It’s fantastic to be able to create and share presentations as Google Presentations which are immediately accessible and available on a variety of operating systems and platforms, including mobile phones. In the years ahead, it will become even more important to share content which is mobile-phone friendly.
