Swyzzle is a new slideshow application (or, at least, kind of a slideshow application) that’s seems to primarily be designed as a marketing tool to help people make money, but might have some potential in the classroom.

Generally, I think the tools on The Best Ways To Create Online Slideshows are better.  However, Swyzzle might make it easier for students to create slideshows about the books they’ve read.

Users can quickly type in the name of a book and and have the cover immediately turned into a slide.  You can also easily type in text about it.  Unfortunately, you can only include audio if you upload your own instead of directly recording on the site itself. And, it doesn’t have the ability to have comments left.

If, however, they add those two functions, this might be an excellent edtech tool.
