If you have an existing set of slides, perhaps from a workshop or other training situations, you may want to recreate those slides in your topic.
You cannot directly upload PowerPoint or Keynote slides into a Tribal Habits topic for viewing by explorers. Slide decks are complex, large and often unsuited for learning.
If your slide deck is large - it represents the entire topic - you should ideally create a new topic based on the content in that deck. That's the purpose of Tribal Habits - to turn your passive slides into interactive learning. This article can help you to prepare slides for transfer into a Tribal Habits topic.
If your slide deck is short, there are some options to display or 'recreate' it in Tribal Habits.
Embed. Our Embed element supports a variety of ways to display slides. You could upload your slides into Slide Share and then paste your embed link. Alternatively, if you are able to host your slides on a service, you can paste in the direct link to those slides and they will be displayed in the embed element (NB: This must be a direct linked to hosted files, not a link to files stored in a cloud location like Sharepoint, OneDrive or Dropbox).
PDF. Our PDF element allows you to display a set of PowerPoint or Keynote slides that have been saved as a PDF. This is perhaps the easiest way to just show a set of slides for a learner to scroll through.
Video. PowerPoint and Keynote make it easy to record a video voice-over of you talking through your slides. You just need a microphone and to record your slideshow with voice over. You can then export your slideshow as a video and upload it using the Video element in your topic.
Narration. The Narration element in Tribal Habits allows you to create an online slideshow, with a voiceover, of up to 10 slides. You can recreate your slide deck either by using text-based slides in Tribal Habits, or exporting your slide deck as images (.jpg or .gif) and uploading those slides into each slide in your Narration.
Download. You can upload your slide deck as a Download element in Tribal Habits and explorers can then download your deck for viewing. This is a good option if you are not concerned about distribution or re-use of your slides.
