Free Slideshow Creation and Sharing Sites

I am far from an expert on Web 2.0 slide show/presentation creation and sharing applications, but here is a list I complied of applications other educators have blogged about. I should note that there are links to sites that review some of these applications below. (In answer to the specific question I was asked, many of these have a "private publish" option or you could embed into a blog that is only open to certain people.)

Also, you should keep in mind that some people believe there is a Web 2.0 "bubble" right now and that when it "pops" many of the companies offering these applications will no longer be around - so don't count on these companies to have the only copies of your precious memories or carefully created presentation, back everything up on your end.

Slide Show Creation
  • Bubbleshare (photo slide shows, audio, themes, clip art, videos, create books and calendars)
  • Flickr Show (photo slide shows of Flickr images)
  • Image Loop (photo slide shows, guest books, XML)
  • Photo Show* (photo slide shows with transitions, captions and music)
  • Picture Trail (photo animations, shows, embellishment, hosting, social network)
  • Slide (photo slide shows, embellishment, screen savers integrates to You Tube)
  • Slideroll (photo slide shows)
  • Slide Story (photos with voice narration)
  • SmileBox (shows of photos, videos, text and music)
  • Tabblo ("make stuff with your photos")
  • Flektor (photo slide show creator and more - adults only)
  • Rock You ("cool" photo slide show creator - adults only)
Power Point-esque
(professional type presentation tools or uploading of PPT and similar)
Online Multimedia Scrapbooks
Video Editing and Sharing

Looking for Web 2.0 Applications? I suggest Go 2 Web 2.0.
