How do I add my presentation to a class in order for students to view it online?
There are several ways to have a presentation for students to view online. Depending on the nature of the presentation, you can use different technologies.
The most popular uses are:
- If you want your class to view a slide presentation without audio, you can export your slide presentation to a PDF format and upload the presentation to any of the cloud storage solutions. Google Drive is the easiest one for the students because they already have an account in the UIC G Suite, but you can also host the slide in UIC Box or OneDrive. If you are using Blackboard for this class, you can also upload the presentation in Blackboard.
- If you need to create the presentation from your classroom lecture, you can use lecture capture via Echo 360 and have a full recording of your lecture, including audio and slides. You will need to make sure you are teaching in one of the classrooms equipped with Echo360 technology and you will have to submit a request to use the technology.
- If you want to create a presentation that includes audio and slides before class, for your students to see at a later time, you can use Panopto. Learn more about how to record a video in Panopto here.
