Yesterday, myBrainshark introduced a professional version of its online presentation software. Like the free version, myBrainshark Pro lets you create slideshows or upload existing PowerPoint slides, add audio and video, and share the presentations online. The professional version has business-friendly features, such as the ability to select a privacy option and set up passwords so presentations can be viewed only by select recipients (currently, all slideshows are viewable by the public on Brainshark's website). Pro users also can add a registration form or personalized tracking code to presentations and receive detailed reports on who viewed them and when.
Users can apply Pro features to new and existing Brainshark slideshows for a monthly fee of $9.99 per presentation. There is a 10 percent discount for users who create and store five presentations with pro-level features and a 20 percent discount for 10 or more presentations. You can turn off pro features at any time.
