Creating a good PowerPoint presentation is the first step. Remember to practice over and over your class PowerPoint presentation until to a perfect extent. The next thing is distribution of the class presentation. How to distribute it depends on several factors, where the class PowerPoint presentation is made, where it is going to display, and how many students or classmates will attend to your class, etc.
I have mentioned in my previous post (Section I) how to make a fine class PowerPoint presentation, now I am to share with you how to distribute a PowerPoint masterpiece in the following Section II.
Section II: Distribute a Sound Class PowerPoint Presentation
1. Save your class PowerPoint file on the same computer
If your class presentation is created at and is to be distributed with the same computer (usu. your laptop), then simply leave it there. But by this method, you may run on certain risks of the vulnerable PowerPoint – computer corruption, Internet disconnection, and virus attacks. Many people do that, however, it is not recommended, especially when your class PowerPoint presentation is of critical importance.
2. Simply e-mail your class PowerPoint file
It is a PowerPoint presentation of homework, and you are required to email to your teacher’s account for review. In that case, simply e-mail the presentation.
- Don’t email a class presentation unless you are sure that the recipient use the same OS (don’t email from a PC to a Mac), the same version or later of PowerPoint program. Some people don’t have MS PowerPoint installed on their computers, nor do they have a proper PowerPoint Viewer to read your class presentation.
- Don’t forget to include the whole PowerPoint components (the presentation itself, the sound file, the video file if there is any) in the same folder before zipping it to email. Otherwise, the sounds or video clips embedded in your class presentation will not play on the recipient’s computer.
- And don’t email your class PowerPoint presentation if you are afraid of unwanted modification by others.
3. Save your class PowerPoint content to video
For an online class, you can apply this simple but effective means – save your class PowerPoint content to video, which is more flexible for Web share. When your class PowerPoint content is finalized in protective video, you can email it with comfort or upload it to your website, blog, MySpace, or YouTube, and invite your students or classmates to join in. Nevertheless, finalize your PowerPoint presentation in video first, using some excellent conversion software like Moyea PPT to Video Converter
4. Save your class PowerPoint presentation onto a DVD disc
If you are to take your PowerPoint presentation from home to school, consider burning or saving it to a DVD disc. A DVD backup is a wise relief from your vulnerable PowerPoint presentation. You will neither suffer from such computer risks as computer corruption, virus attacks that may occur by Method 1, nor bother to any version trouble or cross-platform inability as may happen by Method 2. An additional benefit of this PowerPoint to DVD method is that you can play your class PowerPoint at a DVD player on big screen TV, just like a professional movie.

5. Save your class PowerPoint file as PDF
As to printing and reprinting, you can save your class PowerPoint as PDF. Before taking this means, you should make sure your recipient has Acrobat Reader or else PDF viewer on his/her computer. If your class presentation is composed on MS PowerPoint 2007, you can save it direct to PDF since there is a Microsoft Save as PDF or XPS Add-in for 2007. You can also use a standalone conversion app, e.g. Moyea PPT to PDF converter, to turn your class presentation into organized PDF. Save as PDF, and give a PDF copy to each attendant, when you intend to deliver your class presentation with full sense.
