Making Slide Shows Better

If your students are tired of using the same boring, standardized fonts when they create content or you're tired of looking at those fonts, take a trip to 1001 Free Fonts. The fonts available are free for non-commercial use and can are available for Mac and Windows operating systems.

Applications for Education
While not a ground breaking website by any means 1001 Free Fonts might be useful for students looking to create something a little different than everyone else. Sometimes just a minor deviation from standardized fonts is all a presentation needs in order to stand out from the crowd. The same is true for posters and pamphlets. But don't take my word for it, see what marketing guru Seth Godin has to say about font selection in his blog post Nine Steps to Powerpoint Magic.
