I really like the idea of slideshare and i think that it is fantastic that you can upload your powerpoints to one place on the internet that can be accessed from anywhere. The best part is no matter what software you use to create your powerpoint the website will play it. Now you don't have to worry about converting it to the same program as on the computer such as PowerPoint 2003.
The website doesn't only allow you to upload you powerpoint presentations, however it also allows Word documents and Adobe PDF Portfolios to be uploaded and shared publicly or privately. (Slideshare, 2009)
I think that this is a great tool for anyone who is frequently creating powerpoints at home and sharing them elsewhere, as part of a presentation etc. As a teacher this tool would be great as you could upload you powerpoints to one place and have them there as ready references for ever!!!
