Last Friday three members of the Office Web Apps team paid a visit to a class at the University of Washington here in Seattle. My role was to give a PowerPoint presentation and demo. All I took with me was a netbook. It didn’t have Office installed on it.
The purpose of our visit was to launch a field trial where about 30 students will be using the web apps for several weeks and then telling us what they think. The opportunity to engage face-to-face with these students is enormously valuable both as a gauge of where we are and as a source of feedback for where we should be going. I’ll post periodically about how the trial is progressing but today I want to talk about the presentation.
As I said, I showed up at UW with only a netbook without Office installed. That means no PowerPoint. I hooked the netbook up to the projector and launched IE8. I navigated to the SharePoint server that we are using for the trial and launched my presentation. I could have used Windows Live but I wanted to use the same environment that the students will be using. In only a few seconds the first slide was up on the wall in full-screen mode in PowerPoint Web App.
To really put PowerPoint Web App through its paces I made sure my presentation had lots of animations. I don’t think anybody noticed I was using PowerPoint Web App until I told them.

This could be a great way for public schools to save on licensing costs in this era of diminishing funding. I'd love to learn more about security features for kids/students in public schools, perhaps tying this in with inexpensive email hosting through Microsoft, etc.! I'd love to learn more!
