PowerPoint and Presenting Stuff

SlideShare: Joining SlideShare

There are so many site that let you upload and share photos and videos — it was only a matter of time before you had one that lets you upload and share slides and presentations. And that’s exactly what SlideShare is — simple, easy to use, and effective.

In a series of posts, I’ll explore SlideShare, which I must add is in beta now. To join SlideShare, you need an invite — that’s something you can request on the SlideShare site itself (see Figure 1 below). Or get hold of an existing SlideShare member who can send you an invite.

Joining SlideShare

Once you have an invite, click the link in the invite email to get to the sign up form that you can see in Figure 2 below.


Figure 2: Signup for SlideShare

Fill in all the form fields as required — do choose a username and password — and click the Sign Up button. The next time when you will log into the SlideShare site, log in using your username and password. In my next SlideShare post, I’ll teach you how you can upload your presentation slides.
