The Presentation Wizard lets you add PowerPoint presentations, videos, and interactive visual aids seamlessly. The presentation wizard or Onboarder converts the contents into a collection of slides, organizes them into a presentation and builds parking lots for each slide.

Adding presentations can be done in three (3) easy steps:

  • Specifying the presentation Information
  • Adding Slides and;
  • Reviewing the Confirmation page before publishing

In this example, we used a PowerPoint (.ppt) file to demonstrate the process. But in general, you can use this method when adding videos and interactive visual aids as well.
