  1. 1. File Hosting/File Sharing ToolsPosted by Sue Waters on Thursday, April 24th 2008File Hosting/Sharing ToolsThere are so many file hosting and sharing tools that can help us with our blogging. Here are justa few that made it into the Top 3 Best Web 2.0 as recommended by my twitter network and ourreaders.Isabelle Jones recommended Scribd because you can upload documents and share them withothers i.e. your communities as well as publish them on blogs. I’ve never heard of Scribd beforeso Kevin Gamble explained “it’s like a YouTube for documents”.Scribd was nominated 64th top tool in the Top 100 Tools for Learning 2008 list by 155 learningprofessionals. I would love to hear more about Scribd if you are using itWhereas Marlene Manto says she couldn’t do without Box.net because it’s great for storage,sharing and collaboration. Box.net allows you to upload large documents, photos, spreadsheets,videos, or zip files to your online space which can then be accessed from anywhere. It meansyou can store large files online at Box.net instead of using your blog storage space; all you needto do is link across to the Box.net storage location.Here are Marlene’s instructions on how to use Box.net.What can we truly say about SlideShare? Not only is it an excellentlocation to store and share your PowerPoint presentations online butit’s also a great resource for: • To discover other people’s presentations and slideshows for sharing with your readers • Visiting to learn the art of crafting a presentation; great for inspiring ideas when creating your own presentationsIf you’ve not used SlideShare you definitely need to check it out!Thanks Dean Groom for including it in your Top 3 Best Web 2.o tools.SlideShare was nominated 14th top tool in the Top 100 Tools forLearning 2008 list by 155 learning professionals.Here is one of my favourite SlideShare’s by Kim Cofino.
