A Documents library like no other!  Akash Bhatia 2013

“I love to search for free quality content on Slideshare” 2013

  • “This is a great way to share student work on a webspace”. Mary Howard
  • “PowerPoints from presentations always available and can be embedded into blogs and Moodle”. Leia Fee
  • “allows me to post my slide shows for others to see, but, more importantly, allows me to find great slideshows from others. There’s some amazing information there and all free of charge” Carol Skyring
  • “Now, how could I share my slides without slideshare? Yes, there are other ways but slideshare is true community. You can provide all the boundaries you want or leave your slides out on the table to be “borrowed” by just anyone. I figure no one would copy EndNote slides if they didn’t need them. I search slideshare for topics I’m interested in or need to know about and the presentations I find are so helpful to me I do download them and study how someone else did what I want to do.” Lissa Lord
  • “Other educators have provided excellent resources from Slideshare and slidecast, and I have been inspired to use it too!”  Anne Paterson
  • “In my view, the YouTube of presentations. This is a great social networking site for sharing presentations. You can access some really interesting presentations here.”  Manish Mohan
