I stumbled upon Sway today. Microsoft Sway promises to make creating web presentations easy, which is a fairly big claim.
I also happened to be studying MSK for the Core Exam, so I made a Sway approaches to mass lesions in bone. There will also be some comments on Sway.
Here’s the disclaimer: I am not an MSK expert, just some guy studying for the Core Exam! Also, all images here belong to their original owners, not me.
Also, Sway’s navigation is a hybrid between PPT slide show and web-based scrolling. It takes a little getting-used-to. Definitely try it in full screen, but it can also be embedded in a web page like this.
All in all, I was impressed with Sway, and I hope it continues to mature.
It did crash twice on me, but no content was lost as the app continuously saves your edits to the cloud the same way we have come to expect web apps. Sway is the easiest way to create engaging content by removing the guesswork in design layout. Whereas PowerPoint seems to encourage you to create bulleted lists after bulleted lists, Sway encourages you to get your point across through pictures and videos.
I really like the direction the software is taking because this is how radiology content should be shared.
For someone who always needs to be doing something to keep focusing on the topic at hand, Sway kept me on task by providing an immersive environment for creating content. That’s always a plus.
