  • We use the word media in the old sense of the word, referring to different types of information resources.
  • Slide hosting services are websites which allow users to upload, view, comment, and share slideshows created with presentation programs. According to Alexa and Compete rankings, the most popular slide hosting services include websites such as Slideshare[1], MyPlick [2],Slideboom[3], and SlideServe[4].Create branded channels for your company – when you create the account create in as Slideshare was founded by RashmiSinha, Jonathan Boutelle, AmitRanjan.25 million views per month70 million page view per monthIt started its Beta site in October 2006.
  • Slideshare offers a online presentation of more than just slides, also Word, Pdf, videos, and webinar.Again it has online help – take a tour and start uploading.
  • Widgets to add into everything.
  • There are always developments to integrate Web 2.0 tools. Like embedding a Youtube clip in your presentation. And always very easy to do with online how to as well.
  • Creating an accountis again very easy with the usual verification required.You can also now decide between 7 different types of accounts.
  • Branded, fill out your profile, decide which bits you want to have public and which private.When you are logged in, you will be in “my slides”As from this month – you can also get my rss feed for my uploads.You can list your presentation, documents, videos, following, your favourites, you can create groups – which would be great for classes or specific years or programmes, and events. So we created one for today.We can of course upload, by clicking on the upload button.Like with many databases – the buttons next to the logo remains, and that below changes as the page changes
  • In the upload page, you have several options to upload. Bulk upload, single upload, Web upload, email upload, upload via plugins, and importing from your google docs.We are going to do a single upload.
  • Choose the category that you want it in.Decide whether you want to have it public or private. You can also deselect permission to download.Fill out the title, the tags, and the description and save.And when you make it for public download, it important to tell people what rights you want to reserve, so CC license it important.
  • If you want your presentation to be public. Click on the appropriate button when uploading or go back and edit.
  • Once the file has been uploaded you will be prompted to save the data again.
  • Again I can share on my social networking sites and I can take the embed code in your website or blog.
  • And on Twitter
  • To embed on a website or blog, select and copy the coding.
  • An example on a blog.Go to you widget that allows html/java coding or just open a post, paste the coding.
  • Or
  • If you want to embed in a post on a blog, you could also go to the URL site for your Slideshare presentation, and click on the button on the left hand side of your presentation. Depending on your network speed, this may take a while, you will be prompted to allow access and then simply click on the appropriate button to blog.
  • You can also completely remove a presentation. So you must be signed in, go to your presentation page, click on edit presentiation.
  • The click on delete presentation
  • We can search for something on slideshare, or if you have the url of the slide on slideshare, you can paste it into your browserCan view it online on the buttons at the bottom, share it, view it in full screen. Send it to a group or event.And again you can share it , email it, add it into your favourite, and follow this channelAnd of course download it. Click on the download button.So you can find it in you download file in you’re my files or save it where you want it.
  • If you would like to create a group, it is again a matter of a 2 step process.
  • Bec
  • Because I have required that membership must be requested and only members can post, I have to invite people via email.
  • This is great for classes I think.
  • I can also see more information on the person who shared the presentation on Slideshare.And I can also follow that person or group.
  • While Slideshare presents an opportunity for Institutional and personal brand building, it presents you presentations, in amongst many, many others amongst many topics and subject disciplines.E-LIS is a subject repository, and as with all subject repositories it provides you an opportunity to present, make known within a specific subject and discipline.
  • Different types, tutorials and library instruction material
  • Apart from making your work available online, you add to the body of LIS knowledge and build the profession.
  • E-LIS provides you with a more professional environment from which to make your research, papers, presentation online, and globally available.
  • Link to Author registry and ROMEO, as well as allowing to stop, save and come back to the item. But in the interim you will have an url that you can insert into your presentation, or CV etc, and when you are ready post the link on your facebook page.Submit to both and add the Slideshare URL into you metadata for your document. Thereby being able to locate all you work in one place.
  • E-LIS has librarians – who check the metadata on 2 levelsIn addition to keywords that can be entered into the metadata of an item, E-LIS use JITA classification scheme – controlled vocabulary environment benefits.
