Sliderocket - Create and share online presentations


   This website provides the software needed to create and share online presentations. Although the website is meant to improve “business communication," it can also be used successfully to improve teacher/student communication, not only in the classroom, but outside of the classroom as well.  This website provides the means for teachers and students, from all around the world, to communicate and share ideas.

   New presentations can be created on the website and completed presentations can be uploaded to the website.  PPt and Google presentations can be uploaded either as “editables” or “images” and both can easily be shared.  The difference between the two, importing as editable or importing as images, is that editable imports allows access to all the features of sliderocket, whereas importing as images does not.  Below is a screenshot of some of the many features available when importing as editable.    [see attachment]

   Regardless of if the presentation is created using the website or uploaded from a different source, all presentations are updated automatically and information can be shared in real-time, using sources from the internet. All presentations are accessible online and offline, twenty-four hours a day, making sharing easy and convenient.

   Another useful tool for teachers and researchers is the ability to track the number of views each presentation has received and what each participant did as a result (added or deleted material, and/or edited grammar, word choice or overall presentation of the material).  This provides the creators of the presentation, either teachers or students, a way to assess whether or not their project is successful.
