Presentation module

Note: You are currently viewing documentation for Moodle 2.0. Up-to-date documentation for the latest stable version is available here: Presentation module.

The Presentation module enables teachers to quickly and easily create a resource that looks and acts like a Power Point presentation without using any software outside of Moodle. One advantage of this is that most users are familiar with this layout and will find navigation through the slides in the presentation intuitive. It is a comfortable environment for many.

Caution : make sure you download the latest version submitted near the end of the discussion thread ; otherwise this module may block installation of other Moodle modules.
