What is Slideshare?
Slideshare is an internet site serving as a repository of slide decks, allowing users to download complete decks, clip specific slides, or comment on the work of others.
Here are the core properties of Slideshare:
- Slide-sharing site with over 70 million users
- Allows you to upload your own content and view others’ slides
- Content is easy to locate using the search function
- Interaction can come through liking, commenting, or sharing to other social media platforms

Just like you can’t leverage YouTube without videos, you obviously can’t leverage SlideShare without first creating a PowerPoint deck. If you’re facilitating a class on slide design, SlideShare could also be a way to encourage your participants to show you (and their peers) what they’re capable of by assigning a SlideShare upload as part of the course.
Just like you don’t want to share poorly designed slides with your learners, you really don’t want to share poorly designed slides with the rest of the world. Yes, there are some poorly designed slides that clutter up the SlideShare archives, but at the end of the day, slide decks that don’t adhere to basic principles of visual design are as underwhelming on SlideShare as they are in the training environment.
