PLEASE NOTE: This is not accepted practice, as utilising a powerpoint video in this manner can cause more issues than it fixes. But if it’s absolutely needed, here are the instructions:
This wiki includes screenshots from a Windows Powerpoint 2016 version (as this is the most common at the University) if you are on a Mac, my colleague Rob Englebright has created Mac-version of this same workflow. Mac Directions Link
First, you need to open your Powerpoint and actually create the narration.
Once you’re finished. Save the powerpoint (so you don’t lose your work) and once saved, go to File in the menu
In the files area, click on Export
In the Export window, choose the Create a Video button
In the Create a video window you can leave the default choices and click on the Create Video button
A standard Windows save window will open, you’ll see that it’s saving as a MPEG-4 (Mp4) file. This is the correct type. Choose where you want the video file to go (on your desktop, or wherever) and click Save
Now go into the module area where you want to put your video And upload the video using our standard Panopto suggestions.
