Overall Satisfaction with Microsoft Powerpoint Online

PowerPoint Online is used as part of the Office 360 suite of products. It's offered to all faculty and staff at a few of the colleges at which I teach. It helps us collaborate with each other, editing and contributing to our shared lectures together in real time. We can then, in turn, share view-only versions of the notes in our courses with our students.
  • Sharing
  • Being as exact as possible to the desktop versions
  • Transitions and presentation
  • The limitation of webfonts make it hard to include every font
  • Some animations are not the same (as desktop)
  • Real-time collaboration
  • Continuity between desktop and online versions
  • Compatibility between prior versions
  • Reduced time spent prepping lectures
  • Increased service to our students with real-time access to updates (instead of static documents in a cloud somewhere)
It's far more compatible with existing PowerPoint presentations. Period. Nothing else compares.

The compatibility with prior desktop versions has gotten FAR better over the years. Aside [from] few very advanced features, the online version of PowerPoint is nearly identical to the desktop version. Being able to work together on the same document in real-time can't be beat.
