Upload Your Audio to SlideShare, make Slidecasts & Webinars
Did you know that adding audio to your presentation can get you up to twice as many views? That's because when you add audio, your viewers get the whole presentation, including what you said on each slide. Having audio also makes your presentation more likely to go viral.
Earlier, the biggest problem with making a slidecast or webinar was finding a place to host the audio. But now you can host your mp3 directly with SlideShare with file size limits).
For more info on creating slidecasts and webinars hosted on SlideShare, go here. To get started with adding audio, go to the Edit page for any of your presentations.
From our CEO's desk:
Books in presentation format
(An occasional article from our CEO: Rashmi Sinha)
Tim O'Reilly and Sarah Milstein's new Twitter Book made me realize how the presentation format suits some books perfectly.
When the material is visual, text is sparse, and material needs be easily skimmed, then a presentation format makes a lot of sense.
Should you be considering the presentation book format? Maybe you have a series of talks that you want to work into a book? Why not make it a presentation book?
