Slide Show: Create and Publish

 

Empressr – The Best Online Rich Media Presentation Application.

Empressr is an online web app where students can easily create, store, and publish presentations.  While students do have easy access to a similar program through their google accounts, Empressr does offer some features not found there, including easy ways to record voice overs, embed audio and video, and some extra transitions.
