How To Share PowerPoint Presentations Online With Friends, Colleagues, and Coworkers
Use of Cloud Storage for Sharing
Cloud storage has become increasing popular for many different functions; from online backup, to sharing files with friends, and simply for use as extra storage to clear clutter on your computer. You can upload your PowerPoint presentation to a file sharing service like Egnyte, and then distribute the download link to the intended recipients of the slideshow. Also take note that you can upload your presentation in two different formats. You can upload it for viewing purposes only, or you can upload in a format that can be edited by the recipients. If you are working on a group project featuring a PowerPoint presentation, then you might consider uploading the revisable version so your team members can also edit the presentation as needed.
PowerPoint Specific Sharing Sites
These sites are geared towards presentations developed with PowerPoint, making it easy for you to upload your presentations then share them in video format. Many of these sites do not have the ability to transcribe audio or sounds associated with the presentations, so be aware of this. Another benefit of these sites is that some of them offer a conversion service, which can allow you to convert your presentation into an acceptable movie format so that you may upload it to sites like Youtube or Facebook. Because of the file type that PowerPoint presentations are saved in, you cannot upload them to these sites in their natural format.
Sharing PowerPoint Presentations on Youtube
This method will take a little more work than the previous methods. Since the file format that PowerPoint uses is not an acceptable format for Youtube uploads, you will need to convert the file to a more acceptable format. You can use conversion sites for this, or you can utilize one of the many PowerPoint sharing sites that offer file conversion. Once you have your presentation converted, you can then upload it to Youtube. Unfortunately, many services cannot convert the audio attached to the presentation, and the services that do you must pay for. So if this is a problem, you can add music to your show once it is uploaded to Youtube. If you require sounds or music that are already in the presentation, then you may decide to invest in one of the conversion services that can also convert audio.
