Visme is a web 2.0 tool that is more for presentations. I've used it to make this presentation. As you can see it's a slideshow presentation, like powerpoint or google slides. You can collaborate with other workers. However! It has GREAT graphics. That's the best part! These graphics are so interesting and FREE! You can upgrade… Continue reading Visme
