In this post, I will describe about an free online tool, Roojoom which you can use for adding a step by step online presentation in your WordPress blog. Roojoom has a user-friendly drag and drop interface for creating presentations. You can add links, text, images and even PDF documents in your online presentation. Roojoom is helpful if you want to create an online presentation which has many steps and includes high-resolution images. You can embed the online presentation widget in your blog by using embed codes and you can add a link to your presentation. When a user clicks on the presentation, it opens in a lightbox full resolution mode. Widgets comes in different sizes which you can select as per your needs. After you have created your Roojoom you can share it in Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, Google+ and via email. You can track the analytics for your presentation like number of visits, number of step views and number of shares from the dashboard.
