myBrainshark Alternatives

myBrainshark was the free, online version of Brainshark On-Demand (an enterprise software solution for creating training materials for sales reps). myBrainshark enabled users to upload PowerPoint presentations, images, or other documents and enhance them with features like audio commentary, embedded polls, and video clips. Finished presentations could then be uploaded to YouTube or embedded on a website or blog. And while the basic service was free to use, myBrainshark also had paid subscription features, providing users with more robust teaching tools such as testing and scoring features, as wells as viewer analytics allowing them to see who had viewed presentations and completed quizzes.

After six years, Brainshark's CEO announced that the company would be winding down myBrainshark to focus on its enterprise products. When myBrainshark finally closed its doors in January earlier this year, it left many long-time users looking for an alternative video presentation service that offered the same affordability and ease of use. We've rounded up a couple contenders below.

Most modern editions of PowerPoint allow you to record presentations and voiceovers from within the software itself, which you can then export and upload to Youtube. This may be all you need if you only need to deliver a presentation online, but obviously PowerPoint lacks the functionality for more advanced features like quizzes and polls.
