Presentation software

What is presentation software?

Presentation tools enable students to collaborate, organise, and share their learning with an audience – this maybe virtual or face-to-face.

Different applications may allow students to add and format text, upload video and audio files, add and manipulate images. Presentation software can be application-based or used directly from an Internet browser.
