280 Slides


280 Slides looks like it might be the newest addition to my The Best Ways To Create Online Slideshows.

I need to explore it further, but I especially like its feature that lets you search for images and videos off the web right inside the slide-show creation process. Except for the wonderful Bookr tool, which is still by far the easiest way to make an online slideshow, all the other sites on my list require that you open up a separate window to search for images in order to get their url address first before you “plug” it in. This feature just makes it easier for English Language Learners and everybody else to create their shows. And 280 Slides has far more “bells and whistles” than Bookr.

You have to register if you want 280 Slides to save your presentation, but the process is simple and quick.

Thanks to the Free Technology For Teachers blog for finding another great site.

  1. Hey, thanks for the feedback and the post! Minor correction, you actually can use the site without registering, including building your presentation and dragging in images, and even exporting to PowerPoint or SlideShare. We only ask you to register so you can save to our servers.

  2. Hi Larry,

    This 280 slides looks really good. I think Iparticularly like it because of the MAC like interface.

    Nice one. I’ll be try it out with some training work I have this month.
