View Full Version : [all variants] Presentation in a web browser

January 26th, 2010, 01:01 AM
Hello everybody!

I just want to share with my experience.

I was assigned to teach a math class in a room where the only way to show something was a multimedia projector. (The white board was awful). I decided to make presentations for every class. My laptop has ubuntu (no MS PowerPoint) and the class room has no OpenOffice. So, I decided to make a presentation in Firefox.

Here is what I use: http://kouznetsov.awardspace.com/xpresent/xpresent.html

An example is here (http://kouznetsov.awardspace.com/xpresent/presentation.xhtml) (Firefox is needed, right arrow moves forward, left arrow moves backward).

Here is what I like

easy to typeset math
the aspect ratio of the presentation is the same
it is possible to have only one file for the whole presentation
html mark up
various effects
only firefox needed (3.5 is recommended, but 3.0 is acceptable if you manually resize)

I hope somebody finds it helpful

Im thinking of using a browser and GTK Record My Desktop to do some video / film work... Smart thinking, you have a rich multimedia engine at your fingertips w/ Ubuntu ;-)
