This tool was developed within the framework of a cooperation agreement between the European Centre for Modern Languages and the European Commission


Principal function(s): Virtual Exchange

A tool for sharing presentations, infographics, documents, and video content. Available or already uploaded content can be searched by file type (infographics, presentations) or by various topics (education, environment, medicine). Registration is needed. Evaluation: Slideshare is a great source of material and is interesting for both teachers and students. Users can embed presentations into their website (or learning platform), which means that others can view them freely and easily. Privacy settings can be adjusted so that uploaded content is viewed only by those who have access to the links. No particular IT skills are needed for its use, just a good tutorial on all the possibilities it offers.

Cost: Free with registration
