Another alternative to PowerPoint

I have had many teachers wanting to embed Youtube videos into a PowerPoint. Unfortunately, without downloading the Youtube video, you cannot "embed" the video. You can hyperlink to it, but not embed.

Of course, there is always the option to use Google Presentation, which has made a lot of improvements in functionality over the past year. And, in Presentations, you can embed a Youtube video, but you have to have an Internet connection to show the video/presentation.

So, what's another alternative: SlideRocket.

Check out this SlideRocket presentation on embedding Youtube videos into a SlideRocket presentation. Here, you can also download the presentation with the Youtube video.
