OK – so I’m not able to give you PowerPoint for free but I can direct you into a few sites for free presentation templates…
I don’t know about you but I’m always looking for something “new” to use – I’m a teacher and I have the same audience day after day (for at least 180 days of the year!) and rotating through the same old set of templates gets pretty boring for me so I know it’s not catching their attention.
With that in mind I’ve got a couple of places (besides the Microsoft site) where you just may find the exact thing that you need.
- Indezine: this site has a ton of great templates that can be accessed by category (education, financial, medical, etc.) or by color scheme (yep, that’s right, you can see all blue templates regardless of category).
- Presentation Magazine: They have 345 presentation templates and themes – lots and lots of options – all free and ready to download.
- TemplateWise: There’s a lot going on here – categories include abstract, nature, travel, general, business and finance. There’s everything from “cute and colorful” to “let’s get down to business folks”.
While there are tons of sites out there with free templates I bet just getting started with these three will be quite an adventure.
It’s time to go wandering through the PowerPoint forest of free templates.
