Title: What Methods Can Faculty Members Use to Post Accessible Microsoft PowerPoint Presentations to Online Distance Education Courses?
Abstract: Microsoft PowerPoint has been referred to as the "killer application" for online distance education. There are five primary ways that an instructor can post a PowerPoint presentation to a distance education platform, as follows: (1) Post the PowerPoint presentation "as is" in PowerPoint (PPT) format. (2) Utilize the "Save as HTML" feature built into PowerPoint. (3) Save the PowerPoint presentation as Rich Text Format (RTF) file. (4) Use a 3rd party tool to facilitate the conversion from an existing PowerPoint presentation. (5) Manually create "from scratch" a native HTML document. Each of these methods has pluses and minuses in terms of accessibility, usability, and ease of use.
