Thing #9

What a treasure trove Slideshare is! I'd definitely use Jean-Luc Niezette's "Presentation Cookbook" to show PowerPoint novices how to effectively create their presentations, then have them upload their work to Slideshare.
As Joyce Valenza notes, the ability to add voice to AuthorStream presentations would make it an ideal place/way to store class presentations by students - for later grading, as peer-teaching tools, as part of student portfolios. Of course, teachers could save presentations on AuthorStream so that substitutes could show those lessons in the teacher's absence, for use of homebound and distance learning students, or just to ensure that identical content was presented to each class.
