1. What is Sway?
Sway is a simple to use tool for creating beautiful and engaging web-based presentations.
Sways can include text, images, videos, and lots more!
Teachers can use Sway to create and share interactive lessons, assignments, study guides, trip reports, and best practices. Students can use Sway bring assignments, projects, reports, and study materials to life in a new way.
Sways are responsive to your screen size, so are beautiful (and readable) whether you are viewing on a computer, TV, phone, or tablet.
You can also simply embed Sways into websites, blogs and OneNote books.
2. How do I get started with Sway?
Sway is available as an app for Office 365 Education users – or you can sign up for free at sway.com. (There are also apps available for Windows 10 and iOS.)
You can start with a blank Sway or convert an existing Word, PowerPoint or PDF document into a Sway.
This video shows you how to create a Sway and explores some common options:
Once you have created a Sway, you simply share the web address with your friends, teachers, parents, or the whole world. In a school, you are able to restrict it so that only people with a school email address can view your Sways.
