About Powerpoint - for Macintosh
Often instructors will have you add a PowerPoint presentation to a course area such as Student Presentations.

For any file to be viewable on the Web it needs to be in an Internet compatible format such as HTML. Thus, for students to view the presentation online, no matter what computer platform they use, the PowerPoint will need to be saved as a Web Page or HTML.

If requested to upload a PowerPoint as an attachment to either WebCT Mail or Discussions there is NO NEED to save it as a web page, just upload the regular powerpoint file (view "How do I add an attachment to either Mail or Discussions" for additional information).

Saving as a WebPage
In PowerPoint (these shots are from Office 2001, but the process applies to versions 2001+ as well) select from the menu "File" and "Save as Web Page".

Locate an area on your computer (Desktop) and select to "Save".

The saving process results in producing a single .html file and a folder containing several files.

Drag and drop only the folder that was created during the "Save as webpage" process onto the "WebCT PPT Repair Utility" window and wait for it to Ding.

The presentation file and folder can now be uploaded to the course.

To upload this folder to the Student Presentation tool, please view the tutorial on "How do I add a PowerPoint presentation to the Student Presentation area".
