5 Creative Uses Of PowerPoint Presentations You Haven’t Explored Yet

5 Creative Uses Of PowerPoint Presentations You Haven’t Explored Yet | elearning stuff | Scoop.it

Death by PowerPoint is a popular term. It’s unfair that PowerPoint gets the stick as there are more than a few presentation tools around. As anyone who has taken the pains to make a memorable PowerPoint presentation will tell you – the secret of the steak is in the sizzle. The sizzle also comes and stops at creativity. If you have creativity by your side, you can use PowerPoint as your canvas.

5 Creative Uses Of PowerPoint Presentations 

Karen Ford's curator insight, November 4, 2013 12:53 PM

I think "death by PowerPoint" is used so often because so many users have not "taken the pains to make a memorable..." presentation and the concept of creativity might not have even been considered. Not totally sure what the answer is, but I do believe that if more individuals could have their eyes opened to the potential that PowerPoint has, we might be able to get passed the "death" issue. That means we have to get the great ideas to the teachers and  their students... not just telling them, but perhaps showing them...

Sandra Carswell's curator insight, November 5, 2013 3:08 PM

PPT is here to stay. We should learn all of its features and be imaginative in how we use it.

Upload and Share All Your PDF and PowerPoint Presentations With This New SlideShare Alternative: SlideOnline

Upload and Share All Your PDF and PowerPoint Presentations With This New SlideShare Alternative: SlideOnline | elearning stuff | Scoop.it

Robin Good: If you are looking for a free and simple alternative to SlideShare you may want to give a look to this new free presentation sharing service which allows you to upload PowerPoint and PDF files without much hussle.

 

Presentations can be viewed in full screen, shared on social media, tagged and categorized, and made available for download if so desired.

 

The service looks clean, simple to use, and promising. (I needed one).

 

Note: Just to warm-up their engine and see how it reacted, I have uploaded both a 74MB .PPT and a 2Mb one. The first one reached its end but then nothing showed up while the smaller file gave me no problems at all. Here is the uploaded presentation:  

http://slideonline.com/presentation/116-design-delle-informazioni-test-slides (it's a test file)
 

Examples of other uploaded presentations: http://slideonline.com/presentation/latest ;


Free to use.

 

N.B.: There is hardly any information on the site, "About", and "Learn More" links are not working, so be prudent before uploading your whole library here.

Update: As I have just learned from a timely email (who wrote me as  am writing this very Scoop - without knowing it) from Julian working on the development team, the only reason is that the service is just brand new... so, just give them time... and lots of feedback.

 

Try it out now: http://slideonline.com/  ;

Embedding & Linking SkyDrive files on Moodle

How to embed and link a PowerPoint on Moodle via SkyDrive and how it updates automatically. Can't imaging why anyone would want to listen to me for 14 minutes but here it is.

 

Did this in a school TeachEat and demonstrate how to embed and link a PowerPoint from Skydrive on to a Moodle course.  

 

There is a nice bit at the end that shows the power of the cloud as I update the PowerPoint and the changes are instant...

 

The  added bonus is that it is all free!
