Academic Presenter is a free software that harnesses video-game technology to create a spectacular dynamic presentation. It combines capabilities of slide-based software products (such as PowerPoint and Keynote) with a dynamic canvas (like Prezi). Users will have transitions between slides like PowerPoint and a dynamic, scalable, rotatable canvas like Prezi.
The ability mentioned above can help us to build a dynamic mind-map diagram from raster images or vector-based shapes as a skeleton for the details which can be again another mind-map, media or even traditional slides.
Also, Academic Presenter utilizes a digitizer in presentation, not only to annotate on screen but also to replay the handwriting wherever is necessary.

Presenting scientific papers need different requirements than presenting general topics. Most of the available software solutions are adjusted to meet business presentations’ demands. However, presenting a nonlinear scientific subject is beyond their capabilities.
Academic Presenter facilitates delivering nonlinear topics. It also enables users to enhance their storytelling skill. Users can switch between two common presentation trends based on the level of details.
