    PowerPoint Presentations in Moodle

    A teacher has created an interactive PowerPoint (2007) which she's saved as a Presentation so that pupils can't simply go to the last slide and find the answer. However, when she uploads it ot Moodle (1.9.7) it shows the Presentation icon but when you click to open it, it opens in PowerPoint, defeating the whole point of the exercise. Is there any way of getting it to open as a Presentation?

    I didn't mean Presentation, I meant PowerPoint Show. My apologies.

    slideboom

    afaik if you just upload a powerpoint Moodle will simply offer for you to download it - what about if she uploads to slideboom (which maintains animations) and embeds that? Just a thought.

    I've done that on her behalf, and despite Moodle icon indicating that it was a Show, the file opened in PowerPoint. Saved it in both 2003 and 2007 formats without any joy. The only solution I've so far found is iSpring, but as this only free for personal use, and not academic use I need to find a cheaper way of doing it.

    Hello, you could try another app similar to iSpring called authorPoint here: Free PowerPoint to Flash Converter | PPS, PPT to SWF | authorPOINT Lite

    It's free as far as I know for edu purposes.

    you can convert them to flash using OpenOffice 3. I would do it in that.
