A List of Educational Slideshows and Presentations for Teachers and Students
Presentations and slideshows are great tools in education and learning.

Nowadays, there is MLA, APA and other formats that have to be used, plus you have web sites, blogs, and online magazines to cite. Mooc creators criticise courses’ lack of creativity Original vision lost in scramble for profit and repackaging of old ideas, say pair Source: Stephen Downes Look what they’ve done to my Mooc: ‘as deployed by commercial providers they resemble television shows or digital textbooks with – at best – an online quiz component,’ argues Stephen Downes When The New York Times declared 2012 the “Year of the Mooc”, you would have been forgiven for thinking that the term – which stands for “massive open online course” – had been coined some time that year. Not so. “Mooc” was first used five years ago in Canada by a group of academics who can claim to be the true originators of what has become the academic buzzword du jour: a type of online learning that, although not without its critics, has taken the global academy by storm.
