Doug Belshaw asked a question about Google Presentations. Doug teaches History at Ridgewood School in Doncaster.

What do Google Presentations offer that Slideshare, etc. does not?” – Doug Belshaw



Google replied:
There are lots of great products out there on the web which ultimately means more choice – this can only be a good thing. Our aim with the presentation feature of Google Docs has been to take the functionality that people use most often and turn it into a product that is simple and easy to use. The main benefit is that you can create, edit and share presentations with a number of people simultaneously, which eliminates having to email the document backwards and forwards and losing track of which version you are working to. Equally, the size of some presentation files can be quite big so a simple link to access the document is much easier than trying (and failing) to email around a large file. We launched presentations in Google Docs in response to strong user demand for presentation-sharing but updates and improvements will continue to roll out over the coming months. Again we’re constantly looking for ways to improve our tools and we welcome your feedback.
