Google presentations are stored in the cloud. Google saves your document every time you edit. Collaboration is a great feature, because multiple users can edit the same presentation at the same time. It has fewer features than Powerpoint, but has a simpler interface. You can import and convert Powerpoint presentations to work on them with Google. Google is free, and because you are using an educational account, you have unlimited space!
