Articulate Presenter enables you to convert a PowerPoint presentation to a Flash SWF based online rich media content -- Presenter also includes several bells and whistles such as the ability to insert quizzes, Flash animations, narrations, and web objects. The output is entirely customizable, includes interactivity, and reduces the file size so that the content can also be sent by e-mail.
