Well, There are many programs to make Presentation:

you can also use

Google Docs (Web: Free)

Google Docs Updates Presentations With Real-Time Collaboration, New Themes, Transitions and More Google Docs has rolled out a new version of its presentations tool with over 50 new features, including, simultaneous editing, a series of new slide… Read… Google Docs' presentations module used to be fairly lackluster, but they've updated it recently to make it more compatible with people coming over from Microsoft Office, or people who want a more robust presentations tool.

Beamer (LaTeX) (Windows/Mac/Linux: Free)

If you're a fan of LaTeX, or just remember having to apply it for your graduate thesis, you'll love Beamer. Where other presentation tools give you a GUI where you drag in elements you want to use like images and video and then tweak text boxes to include the information you want on screen, Beamer requires you to build your presentation in a custom markup language that works for just about any LaTeX document.
