[edit] About PowerPoint and Sakai

Creating an effective PowerPoint (Power Point) presentation can be challenging enough, let alone trying to include that information into the Sakai or web based portion of your course. These articles will hopefully aid you in understanding the intricacies of this process.

The main considerations are preserving the original layout and content of the PowerPoint Presentation; ease of use for students to review, access, making notes and printing, and how quickly information can be updated. The nature of your course will determine which of the following formats work best.

Adding PowerPoints to Sakai can be simple, but you need to follow a few simple steps that are specific to your computer, software and teaching. This article is intended to help you ready your files for Sakai and upload them using your specific software and computer.
