Slideshare allows you to upload PowerPoints (ppt, pdf, pps, pot, odp, keynote) and store them in your personal presentation area. You can share them with colleagues, link to them or embed them in many social network sites, blogs or VLE’s . There is also a facility to synchronise a podcast with your presentation for virtual presenting (a slidecast).

Slideshare is more than just a repository it also allows you to set up your community and events, provides searchable access to other people’s presentations and allows comments on all presentations in slideshare. While not everything on there is brilliant there are some very good presentations. Last week I set up an account uploaded one of my presentation, downloaded someone else’s, set up a community and added several presentations to my favourites. The site is very easy to use and, despite some advertising, uncluttered in design.
