Interactive charts in online presentations

Earlier this year, we posted a small research on US and Canada immigration patterns. Let's make a simple online presentation from it.

Using slides.com

We will be using slides.com, which is probably the most flexible and powerful online presentation engine these days. We will re-use all charts from our earlier post without modifications - they are already published and ready to be embedded. The presentation is available here:


A few things worth noting.

1.  All charts are interactive - move mouse pointer over the curves and see.

2. All charts are embedded with style="width:100%" attribute, which makes them scalable: try running the presentation in full-screen mode or resize your browser window - you will see charts changing their sizes accordingly.

Other online presentation tools

Are there any other online presentation tools that support HTML embedding from arbitrary sources? Unfortunately, not many. So far I have come up with this list:

  • Emaze - NO
  • Google Slides - NO
  • Haiku Deck - NO
  • Prezi - NO
  • Slides.com- YES
  • Sway - NO
  • Slidebean - NO
  • Visme - YES
