  10. 10. <ul><li>Slideshare.net was very easy to use. When I first got the assignment, I googled my topic and it was funny that I actually found a slideshow that was already on there. It really helped me a lot. It’s a simple site that is easy to navigate, and I strongly recommend that teachers use it. Students can view your powerpoint presentations from anywhere that has an internet connection. It’s a very useful tool. It’s also a great way to do research. There are many presentations readily available to teach anyone! </li></ul>
