I suggested Wikimedia Commons, but it turns out she wanted something like Slideshare’s embedding. So here’s a test of how that works (timely, since soon Wikimanians will be uploading dozens of slide decks!)
This is what happens when you use the default Commons “Use this file on the web -> HTML/BBCode” option on a slide deck pdf:
Not the worst outcome – clicking gets you to a clickable deck. No controls inline in the embed, though. And importantly nothing to show that it is clickable :/
Compare with the same deck, uploaded to Slideshare:
Some work to be done if we want to encourage people to upload to Commons and share later.
