In news that will appear in every tech blog on the planet this morning, Google Docs now includes the ability to create a PowerPoint-like presentation.  You can read more about it in the Lifehacker blog.

You can find the Google Docs link in several sections of my Examples of Student Work page, including Student Slide Shows.

There are so many other online web applications where you can easily upload PowerPoint presentations or actually create them within a browser application, I’m not sure that Google’s service will really be much better.

However, if you have your students now using Google Docs for other services, it might now be a little less confusing for them since they won’t have to go to another site.
