SlideRocket for ISU Faculty and Students Narrated Presentations & PowerPoints
Introduction

SlideRocket is a presentation program that has been added to ISU’s Google apps package.  It is available to anyone with an @isu.edu email. Please note that if you go to the SlideRocket website and sign up for an account you will NOT have access to all the features that are available through your ISU account.

Notice:  SlideRocket has been bought by a company called ClearSlide.  As part of this merger the EDU accounts will no longer be available after December 2013. Please contact the ITRC for information regarding saving existing SlideRocket presentations and creating new narrated presentations

Changing your email address on your SlideRocket Lite account

If you have signed up for the free SlideRocket lite account by going directly to www.SlideRocket.com, you will not have access to all the features available through your ISU account. For example, you will be limited with space and functionality unless you are accessing SlideRocket from your isu.edu account. If you prefer to use the free SlideRocket Lite account which uses your @isu.edu email, you will either need to delete the SlideRocket account that you created at www.SlideRocket.com or change the email address in that account to a personal address so you may add the Google Apps EDU plan to your ISU email address. You can then add the SlideRocket Google Apps EDU plan through the More tab as directed above. Instructions for changing the email address on your account are below:

  1. Go to www.SlideRocket.com and Log in.
  2. Click on Account.
  3. Under the Email/UserID: box Click on Change your email/userID.
  4. Follow the steps listed above for accessing SlideRocket through your @isu.edu email account.
