Last week for my presentation on Chandler and the CSG at Educause 2004 I used Eric Meyer’s S5 package instead of Powerpoint for the first time.
It worked like a charm!
In case you’re wondering, S5 stands for the “simple standards-based slide show system”, which simply explains what it is.
I love the fact that it’s entirely web standards compliant, requiring nothing more than a browser to view the slides. And, even better, the same content can be viewed with multiple formatting applied – for instance, here are the slides, and here is the content in an outline view.
I recommend it highly – a big thanks to Eric for making this simple and elegant tool available.
Now I just have to figure out how to convert our organizational Powerpoint template into an S5 template.
