Siehe en:PowerPoint PowerPoint ist das Präsentationsprogramm in der Microsoft Office suite. Der Anwendungsbereich dieses Programmes ähnelt dem von OpenOffice Impress oder Keynote von Apple. Die auf dieser Seite dargestellten Hinweise finden auch auf andere Präsentationsprogramme Anwendung.

Verringerung der Dateigröße für das Internet

Die Verringerung der durchschnittlichen Dateigröße macht jede Präsentation im Internet benutzerfreundlicher. Nicht jeder Nutzer hat einen schnellen Internetzugang oder einen Rechner, der technisch auf dem neuesten Stand ist. Grundlegende Schritte zur Verringerung der Dateigröße von PowerPoint oder anderen Präsentationsanwendungen sind:

  • Verwenden sie keine großen Bilder - eine Auflösung von 1024x768 Pixel bildet die Obergrenze. Man beachte, dass verschiedene Computer unterschiedliche Bildschirmeinstellungen haben. Was auf den einen Ihren Bildschirm passt, sieht auf dem anderen möglicherweise größer aus.
  • Passen Sie die Größe eines jede Bildes der Auflösung in Ihrer Präsentation an. Ein Bild mit einer Auflösung von 1024x768, das in einer Auflösung von 102x76 dargestellt ist kan von dem Programm im größeren Format beibehalten werden.
  • Verwenden Sie nicht "Schnelles Sichern zulassen" - diese Option hängt neuen Inhalt lediglich an, um Zeit zu sparen. Sie entfernt kein gelöschtes Material.
  • Vorsicht bei "Ausschneiden" und "Einfügen" von Bildern aus anderen Programmen. Bilder werden möglicherweise nicht komprimiert.

Export in andere Formate

Die meisten Präsentationsprogramme ermöglichen den Export in andere Formate. Diese alternativen Formate können auch von Moodle genutzt werden. Natürlich können sie einen resource link in ihre Präsentation einbauen und so ihrer Lerngruppe das Herunterladen ermöglichen.


Most presentations can be exported to a series of web pages using HTML and file images. The web export features have a variety of options that offer quite a bit of control in producing the output and mimic the presentation application experience. The student does not download the entire presentation. By default, Powerpoint on Windows does not export HTML presentations using the UTF-8 character set, but it allows for this through a setting in the Web export dialog.

Moodle. After uploading the file structure of an exported web presentation into your course, you can use the File or website link to point the student to the index page of the presentation in a new window. The presentation can easily include links to other resources and once created the author, can easily integrate a variety of other materials without having to re create these in Moodle.


There are several commercial plugins that can export Powerpoints or other presentations as self-contained Flash movies. These may be smaller than standard PowerPoints, though file size reduction can also be achieved without converting to a different format. OpenOffice's Impress and Apple's Keynote both have this functionality built in. :TIP: do not expect all of the more advanced features of your presentation to transfer into a Flash file.

TIP:It is possible to convert PPT to SWF online at site like Zamzar - http://www.zamzar.com

Rich Text Format (RTF)

You can save a most presentation in Rich Text Format. In PowerPoint select File>SaveAs> and use the file type 'Outline/RTF' in the dropdown menu. In doing so you will lose all images and graphics and create a text file that can be opened in Word or PowerPoint, amongst other applications.

TIP:Did you know you can import an outline from a word processor into some presentation programs?

Portable Document Format (.pdf)

Most presentation programs will have a built in method to convert your presentation to an Portable Document Format. Adobe has a free reader but there are other products which will read a PDF file.

An alternative is to "print to" a virtual PDF printer using another program. There are a few free open source programs and many commercial products that will create PDF files. For example QPDF is a free PDF file creator.

PowerPoint alternatives

Your students do not need a copy of PowerPoint to view presentations. Microsoft makes a viewer program available for use on Windows and Mac OS X. The free, OpenOffice Impress is available for Window, Linux and Mac OS and adds the ability to create and view presentations in PowerPoint compatible format.

PowerPoint Viewer

The PowerPoint Viewer is a free download from Microsoft. As with all viewers, this program may not have full compatability and parts of your presentation may lack certain features.

See: PowerPoint Viewer 2003 for Windows.

Apple's Keynote

Part of Apple's iWork office productivity package (along with Apple Pages). Can open and save PowerPoint compatible files as well as saving in its own format and allowing export as PDF, Flash and Quicktime movies.

See: Apple Keynote

OpenOffice Impress

Part of the free and open source OpenOffice office suite. Can open and save PowerPoint compatible files as well as saving in its own format and allows exporting as Flash and PDF.

See: OO Impress description

Moodle presentation like modules

There are several standard Moodle resources and activities that will allow you to create presentations within Moodle. And there are many third party Contributed code plugins and modules as well.

A lesson activity creates linked visual pages of content in a variety of ways. Both Lesson and PowerPoint can be turned into an asynchronous adaptive teaching tool. Some simpler PowerPoints can be imported into a Lesson.

The Slideshow module uses HTML and has a focus on images.

Presentation module is another Moodle HTML based activity.

Another simple option is to use one of the resource tools to link to a presentation stored in your course files or in another place.

Presentation abuses

Many educators note that PowerPoint (or other electronic presentations) is not used efficiently or effectively by the presenters in most mediums from a learner perspective. There are many approaches to making an effective presentation, which vary according to the environment of the presentation (face to face vrs asynchronous on line, is one).

  • Too much visual information on a page
TIP: Step back 8 feet from your 20" computer screen, can you really read it?
TIP: Reduce the number of fonts or graphics on a page
TIP: Break the content up into more pages
  • Ignoring the conflict between audio and visual processing by viewer
TIP: Give viewers your speaking notes, have supplemental resources available along with your screen presentation.
  • Inconsistent formatting
TIP: different bullet type every page, being cute to be cute)
  • Same format every page
TIP: Use 3 or 4 formats on longer presentations, each one alerts viewer to your intent. Examples: 'here is what I am going to tell you format', 'here are the details' format, 'here is what I just told you' format.
