This is a google presentation, you can create your own and embed them in your blogs just as I have done here. One of the fun things you can do is share the presentation with your students and then you can have them make comments in a ‘chat’ window. Click the “open in a new window button” (next to the page counter) and then click “View Together” (which appears at the right hand side of the bottom tool bar.)
(Incidentally, this presentation is embedded using the “Embed Iframe” plugin.)
