A tool for sharing presentations, infographics, documents and video content. Available, already uploaded content can be searched by file type (infographics, presentations) or by various topics (education, environment, medicine). Registration needed.

Evaluation: Slideshare is a great source of material, and interesting for both teachers and students. You can embed presentations into your website (or learning platform), which means that others can view it freely and easily. You can adjust your privacy settings so that the content you upload is viewed only by those who have access to your links. No particular IT skills needed for its use, just a good tutorial on all the possibilities it offers.
Cost: Free with registration
