I suppose what I would think about doing here in toolkits, is coverting the powerpoint into some web friendly format, and then embedding that content in the presentation.

Subject: [Xerte] XOT 2 powerpoint import

Now testing the new XOT 2.1 locally here and revisiting this Powerpoint wishlist item from last year. Alastair had suggested these two methods... just wondering if there is anything new in this area re XOT 2.1 or does anyone know if these options are still the best?



I can think of two options that would work in Xerte Toolkits:

1) Use the free version of Print2Flash to convert the PowerPoint to Flash paper format then add through the Flash paper page type:

2) Use the Navigator page to hyperlink to the full PowerPoint:

Gernerally I'd keep PowerPoints as PowerPoints and use Xerte when I wanted to add extra benefits for students - like interactivities or questions.
