Building Website Slideshows

Building Website Slideshows

Many schools use PowerPoint to build presentations which their parents can read and engage with and those skills will help in creating super slideshows for your website!  School websites have slideshows on their home pages (at the very top - the first thing you see) and some like to include slides in their class pages. Being able to add website slideshows using PowerPoint slides as the source allows you not only to display this content to the outside world in a simple way but it also means that your audience don't need to have PowerPoint in order to experience the beauty of your slides.

Until now, adding PowerPoint slides to a webpage in a way that they are displayed attractively and can be navigated forwards and backwards has not been very easy. Adding PPT files as downloads is also not much fun because not all parents use PowerPoint and often these files are very large. The good news is that we now have the tools available to make it possible to display PPT slides on your webpages in a very easy way. In this session you will learn how to:

  • Create your slides (this is if they are simple images)
  • Export your slides for PowerPoint into JPEG format
  • Create an new slideshow slider in the website control panel
  • Add your images to the slideshow
  • Move them around to make sure they're in the sequence if necessary
  • Set up the display size and mode so that they sit correctly inside your pages
  • Save and then embed the slideshow into any article or place on your website.

We will be installing  the appropriate new component onto your website before you attend the course so that you can create your own slideshow and see how it works as part of the session.

Note on Session Joining: The ZOOM session URL will be emailed to you a few days before the session date. When you join the ZOOM session, you will enter the Waiting Room and will see our logo until the session starts.

The session is only open to schools where an active support agreement is in place.
