Do you have presentations or class notes that you’ve created in PowerPoint or Google Presentations? Would you like these notes to be available to your students anywhere? You can use embed codes to upload your class notes to your class wiki or BlackBoard Page.
In this blog post, I will guide you through how to upload a PowerPoint presentation to Google Presentations and embed it into your class’ BlackBoard page.
The first step is uploading your PP into Google Presentations. Once you’ve logged in to Google Drive, click the red “up arrow” in the upper-left part of the screen.
Next, select “files” and navigate to your PP presentation.
A menu will come up with a variety of options. Pick the options that work best for you and your class. About halfway down the menu, there is an “embed code”. Copy this code (press Ctrl + c or right click). Now, navigate to your class’ Blackboard page.
Click the content button where you would like to add your presentation. Under the “Build Content” tab, select “Blank Page”. Add your title to and click the “Toggle HTML Source Mode” button (it looks like this: <>). With HTML enabled, past the Embed code that you copied earlier. Paste the code after the <div> tags and you’re good to go! Your students now have access to their class notes from your BlackBoard page.
