A presentation or slide deck is an online version of the visual portion of a demonstration typically presented in person at a conference, workshop, or other event. At in person presentations slides are often projected onto a screen for easy viewing.
Typically a presenter will post a copy of their slides before or after a presentation to allow users to view them either after-the-fact for follow up or they may post them contemporaneously to allow remote-viewers a better experience. Some people may keep copies of their presentations online as part of their portfolio. Some conferences may request a copy of one's presentation or a link to for viewing after the event.
A multitude of good examples can be found on the page for Presentations about the IndieWeb.
