  1. 1. Other Technology More in-depth details of how I used certain technology.
  2. 2. Navigating to Slideshare This is the screen that loads when I open Slideshare. As it shows, I can use it to share presentations. In the top menu, there is an Upload button, and I click on this to get going.
  3. 3. Uploading Having clicked Upload at the top, I now need to click on the large Upload box.
  4. 4. Selecting a File This then takes me to a list of my files, and I can select either Word or Powerpoint files, it is up to me. In this case, I will select Audience FeedbackSurvey Monkey at the top. Double clicking it will begin the upload.
  5. 5. The Upload Process The very second that I have double clicked, a host of options comes up for me to give details about my Presentation. With that completed, I click Save and Continue at the bottom.
  6. 6. Further Options Now that I have completed the very quick upload process, I can embed it to my blog using the code shown, and I can also share it to social media. There are PRO options, but I would have to pay to use them.
  7. 7. Finished Slideshare This is my PowerPoint as it appears in Slideshare.
  8. 8. Why use Slideshare? This quick walkthrough has demonstrated that Slideshare is a very quick, simple and easy to use piece of software. I used it across all of the coursework, and another advantage of using it was that it maintained all of the formatting from the original presentation before it was uploaded, so I didn’t suffer from any frustrations when using the software. Additionally, I was also able to embed the Slideshare work to my blog with ease, which was a real convenience.
  9. 9. Welcome Screen When I have logged in, Surveymonkey displays all of the surveys that I have created during my time using the website on this profile. To create a new survey, I have to click on Create Survey at the bottom of the screenshot.
  10. 10. Creating the Survey Having clicked on Create Survey, I am taken to this page, which allows me to add a couple of options. I have named the survey and given it a category, and then clicked continue.
  11. 11. The edit screen With those options added, the next screen that appears is the edit screen, where I can add questions. To do this, I click where it says, Add Question.
  12. 12. Adding a Question This screen shows how I add a question. I have full control over the question itself, and I can also chose the type of question and how it displays in the survey itself. Once I am done, I click Save and Add Next Question, repeating the process until I am done.
  13. 13. Sharing my Survey I want to get people to view my survey, so I click on Collect Responses at the top. Then I have 4 options to choose from. I can embed it on my blog if I want to, but in this case I am going to create a web-link to share on twitter. So I select that and then click ‘Next Step’
  14. 14. The Link and posted to twitter As can be seen, I have been given a link by SurveyMonkey. Then, I have simply copied that link to a tweet and posted it. People can then click the link and take the survey. The capitals were intended to grab people’s attention…
  15. 15. Finally, analysing the results… With my results in, I click Analyse Results at the top. SurveyMonkey then presents me with charts of my results, allowing me to get an easy summary of answers to put towards my coursework.
  16. 16. Why use Surveymonkey? Surveymonkey was an extremely easy to use and helpful tool. I can add up to 10 questions to a survey, which is more than enough, and I can also add a variety of different question types. There are multiple options to share the survey, which boosts the audience of it, and I the summarise section removes the need for me to create my own graphs of results, which saves time.
