That slideshow presentation you just created is worthy of some attention; and now it’s easy to share it with your entire work team or collaborative group with the latest media-networking site called Slideshare. Slideshare.com is taking collaboration and networking aboard the online networking stretch with the ability to upload, exchange, and view PowerPoint slideshows with ease. The free site allows you to embed your presentation within a blog or website; it’s one of the simplest ways to view and comment on each other’s projects online.
Slideshare currently supports PowerPoint and OpenOffice formats, making it easy to use and access by the majority of computer users. Similar to the YouTube embedding on countless blogs and websites today, Slideshare can bring a valuable interactive component to any research topic, idea, or business plan. One simple click on the Slideshare icon will launch your entire presentation on any visitor or user’s computer.
As blogging, social networking, and video conferencing in business circles reach new heights, fresh new web tools for collaboration are making project development and collaboration incredibly easy. Google Docs & Spreadsheets is just one recent example of the opportunities in knowledge and information sharing; Slideshare now enables PowerPoint to play in the game of information sharing with its easy embedded feature.
Sharing slides opens up opportunities for improvement and quick turnaround with feedback. If you have a group working together on a project or idea, molding and developing the final touches on your presentation can happen faster and more efficiently in an online collaboration effort. No more collecting notes before construction; immediately creating, sharing, and editing can now be the efficient process. Just add comment boxes to the blog alongside the Slideshare upload, and the project can come together much faster.
For companies and businesses who value online conferencing, Slideshare can create an easy-access virtual space for ongoing training, feedback, and general research. Without the need for oversized attachments, productivity and communication are streamlined in just one step. Imagine how easy it now is to set up a company training blog, specifically for new employees, and let them go through a training piece complete with a slideshow, real-time comments, and multimedia additions such as a video. A training module with interactivity naturally increases retention; presentations allow both visual learning and effective communications. Slideshare is a valuable addition to online networking; the web is allowing for new and attractive ways for people to learn and communicate, and presentations bring forward impressive additions for the overall effect.
