Tuesday’s Tool: Reel

Looking for a way to best share PowerPoint presentations, PDF’s, Word documents, or images? Try Reel, a new Web 2.0 tool that allows users to upload said files in exchange for a unique URL for the purposes of sharing. Additionally,  Reel provides ways users can receive feedback, embed these files on their own websites, and provide mobile-friendly versions of your documents.

All one has to do to get started is upload image files (jpg, png, gif) or documents (pdf, ppt, doc). Names and descriptions can be added before saving. Once saved, a unique URL is provided for sharing. Either through sharing this URL or embedding the file onto one’s own webpage, colleagues, friends, or students can provide feedback that is easily accessible for users. It’s reelly that easy.

Have you tried Reel with your students yet? What classroom applications can you see for Reel’s sharing and feedback features? How does this tools compare to other slideshow tools?
