Sway is a new web-based app from Microsoft Office that makes it easy to create and share interactive reports, stories, presentations, and more.
Start by adding your own text and pictures, search for and import relevant content from other sources, and then watch Sway do the rest. With Sway, you’re no longer limited to picking a pre-designed template that makes your presentations look like everyone else’s, and you don’t have to have any design skills to transform and showcase information in modern, interactive, and attention-getting ways.
With Sway, there’s no need to spend lots of time on formatting. Its built-in design engine takes care of making your creation look its best. If the initial design doesn’t quite match your taste or mood, you can easily apply another — or fully customize your layout to make it your own.
It’s super easy to share your finished Sways. And you can change the privacy settings for any Sway whenever you want more control over what you share.
To get started with Sway, visit sway.office.com in any browser, then click Sign in on the top menu bar & sign in using your university account.
