Add Voice Narration to Slide Shows - Slide Six

Slide Six is a slide show sharing site similar to Slide Share or Slide Boom with a couple of added features. Just as on Slide Share and Slide Boom users can upload and share slide show presentations privately or publicly. What makes Slide Six better than and easier to use than Slide Share or Slide Boom is that Slide Six users can add narration to their slide show directly on the Slide Six website. Slide Share doesn't support audio narration and Slide Boom requires that the narration be added before the upload.

Here is Slide Six creator Todd Sharp explaining the features of Slide Six.


Applications for Education
As Todd Sharp points out in the slide cast above, adding audio narration to a slide show increases that ability of a slide show to deliver a message. If you have students creating slide shows that are going to end up in a wiki or on a blog consider having them add audio narration to their presentations before embedding them into a blog or wiki.
