Get your presentations in context: SlideShare within Apture

March 24, 2009

Apture is a great service for both finding and sharing presentations, pictures, videos, documents etc. in context. We are happy to announce that you can now find SlideShare presentations via Apture. The Apture team made a great presentation describing how it works (see below). And here is their blog post about the partnership.

What this means for SlideShare users.

  • For people with blogs who like to embed SlideShare presentations: Just install the Apture plugin on your blog and find and embed a SlideShare presentation on any topic you find (all without leaving your blog page).
  • For people who upload their content to SlideShare: Tag your presentations (and add good descriptions) well so that they show up in relevant searches. They might get embedded into publications like this presentation on Nigeria got embedded into New York Times article on Exxon valdez.
  • Finally, for those of you who like to browse SlideShare content, you will start finding it on a lot of blogs / newspapers through Apture.
