NOTE: there is no sound, i.e. it is not a slidecast, as slideshare are going to get rid of this feature.

  • Great news: I think YouTube is the way to go.

    MyPlick had some issues, so I've decided to create a Youtube channel. Search for the 'virtualb15' channel on youtube.
    As I do my lessons this year, they will grow and as time permits I'll use last year's audios to get the others up and running.
    It might take a few months, but hopefully it will still be useful.

  • What a pity. Your slideshare talks are an excellent resource for trainee teachers.

  1. 1. Goodbye Slideshare I received an email this morning from slideshare that went like this;
  2. 2. Slidecast to be discontinued Dear Nigel, We launched Slidecast in 2007 to allow users to pair audio with their slides. While we have seen some great Slidecasts created, usage hasn’t been as widespread as we had hoped, and we have decided to discontinue this feature on SlideShare. Slidecast will be retired in two phases: The ability to create Slidecasts will cease on Feb. 28, 2014 Existing Slidecasts will be converted to static presentations on SlideShare on April 30, 2014 To save Slidecast files in their original form, creators can download their Slidecasts from their ‘My Uploads’ section by April 30, 2014. After April 30, we’ll convert existing Slidecasts (on the SlideShare site and embeds on other sites) into static presentations, so that there is not complete loss of content. For more information, please read FAQs. We are sad that Slidecast is going away, but we want to focus on improving and adding SlideShare features that will resonate with more users. Thank you for your support. The SlideShare team
