12-8-2011 10 Free Ways to Make Online Posters and Presentations

Now that Glogster has started charging, teachers want to know how their students can create poster and project presentations online? Here are 10 sites that can be used to create digital displays by your students.

1. - On the Spaaze board I was able to create a label, enter text onto a notepad, insert an animated GIF, and two pictures created on other sites.  I was also able to upload a file onto the board.  You can also show YouTube videos on the board through the link, but not upload your own videos from your computer.  example -

2. - Create a slide show using text, pictures, photos, animations, YouTube videos. example -
3. - Upload picture and video files and soon add text and captions, found the site to be slow.
4. - could be used to store parts of a presentation, shown by clicking on each one, one at a time.  example -;;75460
5. - Allows user to upload documents, input, format, and edit text, and upload pictures.  A link can be posted to a note and I was even able to upload a rather large ppt file.
6. - I was able to post pictures, text, YouTube videos, and upload files. example -

7. - A bit clunky but was able to come up with an example - 

8. - Allows typing text and titles, uploading pictures and animation, and embedding YouTube videos.
9. - Text, videos from YouTube, and pictures, as well as music, in a slide show format.
10. - The teacher sets up a classroom and students join.  The teacher creates the assignment and students create a poster with pictures and text and turn it in to the online classroom.  

More sites for creating pictures for your displays.  Students who are creating projects on characters, stories, time periods, or events can create snapshots of news stories about their topic, or other cool picto/graphics.


  1. Hi Janel,

    I just wanted to let you know that Glogster EDU DOES offer a free account for teachers and students.Though our pricing plans have changed, the Glog creation tool is still free and always will be. We want the unique Glog interface to be available to everyone. There are many options out there, but we believe that there's nothing else quite so easy to use, intuitive, and student-friendly as Glogster EDU.

    With a Single Free account, teachers or students can create Glogs and share the link with others. Please refer to our blog post, EDU Glogging for Free: 5 ways to make the most of your Single Free account:

    Please let me know if you have any questions. Your feedback is always welcome.

    Have a great day!

    -Jennifer, Glogster EDU

  2. I agree it is a great program, but not that "With a Single Free account, teachers or students can create Glogs and share the link with others." I'm in a middle schools where teachers teach students 13 and under. Teachers also have 3-6 classes of 25-30 students each, therefore they would need multiple free accounts. I am well versed with your site and the teachers here would love to be able to use it, but our district is not purchasing licences. Usernames and passwords are also very difficult with the free version. Our students use netbooks all day, they need to have consistant usernames and passwords for all of the applications they use on a day-to-day basis. So I cannot agree with you.
