Off to the side, I've heard that Prosper works well, and I believe you can
generate a presentation that uses Acrobat Reader (at least, that's what is
used as a demo of its abilities).  I don't know what the learning curve is,
though, or whether you are into LaTeX/LyX.

In a completely rational society, the best of us would aspire to be 
_teachers_ and the rest of us would have to settle for something less, 
because passing civilization along from one generation to the next 
ought to be the highest honor and the highest responsibility anyone 
could have.     - Lee Iacocca
