If you want your students to move away from simple text and images in their slides and start using video these new options in Office 2013 could be handy. Of course, Google Docs has this option too. If you want to insert YouTube videos into your Google Presentations select "video" from the insert menu in Google Presentation then either search for a video or paste in the URL of a video.
