    It’s true! I am using Slideshare a lot these days, incorporating it into my Moodle for both my Spanish and Latin classes. I had a chance to present yesterday to new teachers and we talked about how to use Slideshare to view presentations. I love that it helps kids overcome the need to install software. One of the objections initially (that lead to the chat about Slideshare) was that kids either don’t have PowerPoint installed, or cannot install OpenOffice, or were using public machines. Slideshare takes care of all of that. Yay Slideshare!
    Thanks for an amazing service.

    Chris,
    Glad to hear it! We hadn’t thought of the education aspects of slideshare when we launched … in hindsight it is blindingly obvious.
    And thanks for your slideshare-related moodle documentation … sure to be a big help to lots of folks.
