    Take a look at iSpring. It’s easy-to-use ppt to flash converter.

    Well, courselab is somewhat alike with powerpoint. It’s a good tool to make flash presentation.

    Pointecast is based on powerpoint and this is convenient for people like me who used to operate powerpoint. However I find its multimedia integration is not so good.

    I’m now using wondershare ppt2flash, the coolest thing about it is its integration with quiz, demo, etc. Excellent for elearning presentation.

    Articulate is also a useful presentation maker, but it’s really beyond my budget.
