"Health" is a specific category of submissions on the homepage; other categories include technology, business, education, gadgets, entertainment, and photos. Topics of interest to nursing faculty posted on the Health site include septic shock, good study skills, knee ligament injuries, acute cholecystitis, and sinusitis. Also, several submissions showed information for specific assignments, with embedded links to other sites. Presentations related to Social Technology are interesting and informative.
Nursing faculty can individually determine how best to use this site. SlideShare provides a free and open mechanism for us to share our work with students and others. Of course each of us will need to evaluate r copyright concerns, privacy issues, etc. Still, one more open source tool increases our repertoire of social technologies appropriate for today's nursing student.
