Displaying Your Presentation on the Web

This section describes how to make your presentation viewable on the World Wide Web.

NOTE: before you begin, you must create a folder entitled "public_html" in your directory on the iSchool server. If you have not already done this, consult the iSchool tutorial "How-to Publish Web Pages" or contact a "purpleshirt" for help.

  • To convert your presentation to a web page :

    • Go to File->Export

    • In the Export window, navigate to File format and choose HTML Document.

    • Name your file and choose the save destination.

    • When you click on Save, the HTML Export wizard will open.

    • In the first window, choose from a new or existing design. Click Next.

    • The next window will ask you to choose publication type.

    • Choose Standard HTML format.

    • You can choose to show notes that accompany your presentation slides, or you can turn this function of.

    • Click Next.

    • On the next window, choose how graphics will be exported. Either JPEG or GIF is acceptable.

    • Adjust graphic quality. The higher the graphic quality, the larger the file size. 75% is a good, basic quality.

    • Choose monitor resolution. If you are not sure on the size of the monitor that will display your presentation, choose the lowest possible resolution.

    • If your presentation has sound effects, turn on Export sounds when slide advances.

    • Click Next

    • On the next window, enter information for your web page's title page information.

    • Enter your name, email address, homepage URL, and any other notes.

    • If you would like to have a link within your web page to the original presentation,
      put a check next to this option.

    • Click Next

    • The next window will prompt you to select the button style for navigating through your presentation when it is on the web.

    • If you choose text only, your web page will display the navigation choices as text only.

      For Example:

    • Select button style and Click Next.

    • The final window will ask you to choose the color scheme for your presentation on the web.

    • Select Apply color scheme from document and click on Create.

    To upload your presentation to the iSchool server :

    Step 1 :

    Start a FTP (File Transfer Protocol) program. FTP programs are generally available from the Start menu. If you need help doing this, consult the iSchool tutorials on SSH or Fugu.

    Step 2 :

    Log on to your FTP program.

    Step 3 :

    Locate your web page presentation and any files associated with it.

    Step 4 :

    Select ALL the files and folders associated with your presentation. Drag them to the public_html folder displayed in the FTP session.

    To verify that your presentation is displaying correctly:

    Step 1 :

    Open a Web browser (Firefox or Mozilla)

    Step 2 :

    In the address bar, enter the following: userid)/(your presentation name)

    Be sure that you have included the correct extension in your filename.

  • Presentation saved as Web Page: .html or .html extension
  • Presentation saved as Single File Web Page: .mht or .mhtml extension
  • Presentation saved as Presentation: .ppt extension
  • Step 3 :

    Your web page should appear. If not, verify that you have entered the correct address in the address bar.

    NOTE: Your published presentation may look slightly different viewed in different browsers. Also note that security settings in the browser of a particular computer may require extra steps to view your presentation.
