Freepath – is an application that lets you create presentations that are mashups of web content and content from your PC. For example, a Freepath presentation could combine a PowerPoint file along with images, videos, music, websites, PDFs, Word and Excel documents. All of these files are saved into a playlist and are launched from within Freepath; no need to launch other applications. It gives the user the option to present in a dynamic non-linear way.  Once you have added your content to a playlist, you can upload your playlists to myFreepath to share and collaborate with others. Currently, we give new users 100mb of storage.

    You’d think with Robin’s vast awareness of free online tools he’d choose a more legible format to present his list with! Thank you for extracting the content from that nightmare of a user experience at Mindmeister!

    Robin udpates his list weekly. Do you also keep this list up to date?

    Very good blog! Do you have any helpful hints for aspiring writers?
    I’m planning to start my own website soon but I’m a little lost on everything.
    Would you recommend starting with a free platform
    like WordPress or go for a paid option? There are so many
    options out there that I’m completely confused .. Any tips? Cheers!

      Have a look at my post about Weebly vs Joomla vs WordPress. It should get you started.

    There can be no doubt that the way businesses meet has undergone a major metamorphosis in the last few years. For generations the only that businesses could get together was in person. When you stop and consider this often mean airfare, hotels, meals and other expenses, it is easy to see how much audio conferencing has done to change the business meeting world for the better. This does not even take into consideration all of the lost time commuting to and from the meetings.;

      This is why it is so important to have so many different options for online collaboration.
