Lesson Introduction : 

Lesson Introduction Slideshare.net is the "world's largest community for sharing presentations on the web." That’s what it says on their website and I believe it. Its also one of the coolest communities for seeing creativity. This exciting Web 2.0 application allows you to explore the ideas of others, complete research for your projects and showcase your own presentation style.

Assignment: Description :

Step 2: Time for Slideshare : 

Step 2: Time for Slideshare Up to this point you have just been working on a PowerPoint, now its time to introduce you to Slideshare. Please go to http://www.slideshare.net/ Search the site for some presentations on a topic you enjoy Just leave it open in a separate window for now and go to the next slide

Step 3: Watch a Video on Slideshare : 

Step 3: Watch a Video on Slideshare Watch the video (located on the next slide) on how to upload your Powerpoint, add a description, add tags, and get started on your Slidecast. Its probably in your best interest to follow the steps in the video and upload your PowerPoint presentation while you watch.

Step 3.1 : 

Step 3.1 Watch the video and follow along using your own presentation

Step 4: Making it a Slidecast : 

Step 4: Making it a Slidecast Now that you have your PowerPoint completed and uploaded to Slideshare you have what's called a Slideshare presentation. Its viewable by anyone on the site. The next step is to add your audio to the presentation and then it will become a slidecast. To do that: Go to the presentation, select EDIT > Create Slidecast

Step 4.1 – Using a Song Already Online : 

Step 4.1 – Using a Song Already Online You will need to choose an mp3 from a site on the Internet. Pay attention to license issues. If you bought the song already then you can use it for this presentation. Its better to use Creative Commons music if you don’t have any legal songs online that already have URL’s Try: http://ccmixter.org/ http://www.freesound.org/ OR……….

Step 4.2 – Using a Song Already Saved to Your Computer : 

Step 4.2 – Using a Song Already Saved to Your Computer If you have a song on your computer (legally purchased) that you want to upload for this presentation, you will need to create an account at Box.net Upload the song and you will get the necessary URL.

Step 5: Editing : 

Step 5: Editing Edit the song to fit your slideshow. I recommend you give the reader enough time to read the content on each slide and choose music that won’t distract the reader. Click the link below and skip to Slide 11 to learn more about editing. http://www.slideshare.net/jboutelle/slidecasting-101
