Adding slides to a video

Before you can add slides to your recording, you need to save your slides as a PDF file. Here are a few of the most common applications used to create slides, and instructions on how to save them as a PDF:

  • PowerPoint - To convert your PowerPoint slides to PDF, please see Microsoft's guide here.
  • Keynote - To convert your Keynote slides to PDF, please see Apple's guide here.
  • Google Slides - To convert your Google Slides to PDF, click File > Download as and select PDF. Then select Save.

Please note that Slide Sync is only available for Standard assignments and the "Presenter slides" setting must be enabled by your instructor before you can add any slides.  If you see the icon below next to your video, slides are enabled for that assignment.
