Getting Started with Microsoft Sway

Learn how to get started with Sway.


Product/Version: Microsoft Sway
OS: Windows and Mac OS

Office Sway is a digital storytelling presentation program from Microsoft that's now part of the Microsoft Office family. With Sway, you can create and share interactive reports, presentations, personal stories, and more by combining text and media to create an online presentation.

Now the term "online presentation" may lead you to believe that Sway is an alternative to Microsoft PowerPoint, but really speaking that's just not the case! You will learn more about Sway in this series of tutorials we are creating -- and you will find Sway is an online program or app that sources content locally from the device in use, or from internet sources such as Bing, OneDrive, YouTube, and Facebook. It then mashes all this content to create a Sway. A Sway is an online presentation, almost akin to a multimedia brochure.

Sways can be viewed and edited from almost any modern web browser. You can also share Sways directly from within the browser via so that others can discover and share them. Clearly, there’s so much to learn about -- let's get started!
