Slideshows are great learning tools. They are used by both students and teachers for a variety of purposes and most important of them all is to summarize key ideas and concepts and present them in such a catchy way that readers enjoy exploring. I am pretty sure you all have ,at some point in your teaching, included slideshows in your lessons and in case you want to discover some other free tools to create slideshows and presentations then I would recommed that you read this list of Free Presentation creation tools for Teachers.
Now that you have created your slideshows and customized them the way you want, you will definately need a platform where you can publish and share them with others. Below is a list of some of the best places where you and your students can easily share and publish their slideshows. All of these services require a sign up and once your slideshow is uploaded they also provide different forms of sharing options from using the social media sharing services to the generated embed codes. If at any time after ulplaoding your slideshow or presentation to one of these services and you decided not to publish it then just check your settings and select private.
This is my favourite. As you can see in the Teacher slides section in this blog, most of the slideshows I make here are embedded on Issuu. You can also embed ebooks, documents, and many more. Issuu lets you see stats about your uploaded work like how many have shared i and viewed it.
This is another great publishing platform where you can upload your slideshows or any other kind of file and share it with the world. I have used it to share some ebooks before but what I don't like about it is the too many ads they have there.
I don't think you have not heard about this service. It is also one of my favourites and it does the same thing like the two services mentioned above. It is great for sharing slideshows.
4- Google Docs
This is also another fantastic platform where you and your students can collaborate in realtime in creating slideshows and sharing them with others online. You can create presentations, slideshows, spreadsheets, documents and many more. I highly recommend it.
