More Web 2.0 Tools: Flickr, Slideshare, Zoho Show
There are a lot of other useful Web 2.0 tools. I've been using a number of them in creating this site. Up to this point, I've a few hours across a couple of days in assembling this information as the web site.
Using the blog as a web development tool has been a great help. The University of Michigan Libraries are providing MBlog as a platform for all faculty, staff, and students.
Both Flickr and Slideshare allow you to load your files (images or presentations) into an online account. There are usually free versions of the service to start with, and then you have the option of paying for an upgrade to the account to provide more services and options. Both Flickr and Slideshare also make it really easy for you to use whatever you have in their service in your blogs and web pages, and they even provide you with the code! For this class blog, I loaded the screenshots or presentation files, clicked through to the screen that gave me the code, copied it and pasted it into the blog editing window. Pretty simple.
Here is another presentation file that talks a bit about how to use Flickr and Slideshare, and gives some other productivity tips for using these.
