  • Hi, all—Welcome to my short intoduction to SlideShareand some of the possibilities it offers. This tiny tutorial will give you some real-life examples of SlideShare being put to use right here at the WashU libraries and will hopefully bolster your confidence to get out there and start slidsharing.
  • Well, what is SlideShare?Its one of the easiest ways to get your presentations, documents, and pdfs out on the web.Individuals and organizations upload their content which then has the ability to spread virally through blogs and social networks such as LinkedIn, Facebook and twitter. Anyone can view presentations & documents on topics that interest them if they share them publicly.There are also several ways to share privately. As you can see from the numbers, there are already lots of monthlyvisitors to the site. So, would you like to get the word out about a resource or a service? Do you want your slides to reach people who could not make it to your talk? That’s easy! You can create your slides using PowerPoint or GoogleDocs and then embed them into your own blog, website, or onto LibGuides. Maybe you’re wondering what this presentation is that you’re listening to.
  • Well, by doing something called slidecasting you are able to synch audio to your slides on SlideShare and create a presentation with sound! To use a popular term, it’s a mashup of slides and podcasts. It could be used for instructional purposes, conference talks, musical slideshows, audio picture books or whatever else you can imagine. The last slide will give you information on where to find out more about this.
  • We already have some examples of Slideshare in use at the Libraries and I’ll show you a few of them. Here is an example of hosting a presentation for safe keeping or one that you might like to share with others. SlideShare also makes it easy to create a Url for your presentation so that you can easily email it to others.
  • Here’s an example that Skye Lacerte produced to explain conducing research at the Modern Graphic History Library. You could also use it to provide instructional materials to your users.
  • Finally, last semester a visitor from the Institute of Public Health gave a presentation to the School of Social Work and afterwards the Social Work librarians wanted to share the information widely. With the scholar’s permission, they uploaded her slides to SlideShare and then posted them on their LibGuide.
  • So, here are a few resources to help you get started with SlideShare. It’s really pretty easy, but if you get stuck along the way, feel free to contact someone from the eLearning group to give you a hand. Have fun!
