Projeqt. Faire un diaporama interactif Projeqt est un outil TICE en ligne pour créer facilement des diaporamas ou des présentations. Un des principaux atouts de Projeqt est de ne pas se limiter aux images, ce service permet d’insérer de nombreux formats de contenus sous la forme de slides. L’autre point fort incontestable et qui saute aux yeux dès la première utilisation, c’est la facilité avec laquelle on le prend en main. Le principe est classique dans ce genre d’outil de création de présentations. On crée un certain nombre de slides que l’on va pouvoir ordonner à sa guise. Un ordre que l’on peut toujours changer après coup. Projeqt permet d’intégrer dans ses slides du texte et des images, mais aussi des éléments issus d’un très grand nombre de services en ligne, de la vidéo avec YouTube, mais aussi du son, des cartes interactives avec Google Maps ou encore des publications issues des réseaux sociaux Twitter et Facebook et Instagram.
