Elements from Microsoft PowerPoint can be imported into courses. For information on supported versions of Microsoft PowerPoint, refer to the Technical Specifications. There are three options for importing Microsoft PowerPoint elements:
- Import a slide as a single image
- Import graphics from the presentation
- Import text elements from the presentation
Animations in an imported PowerPoint may not function as expected.
Importing PowerPoint Slides as Images

Import graphics from PowerPoint slides
Select the Pictures checkbox next to the graphic(s) you want to import.
