Create slideshows

Learn how to create a slideshow

Updated over a week ago

Creating a slideshow works very similar to creating a theory page. Learn more about creating theory pages here.

In the Author environment, click on the tab Slideshow. Next, click on the New button.

You will now see a screen with four fields:

Name: Give your new slideshow a name.
Theme: Choose the color scheme of your slideshow.

Position: You will see two input fields here. For the one on the left, the one labelled Chapter, choose within which chapter you want to create the slideshow.
You will now see a second input field, labelled Subchapter. Here, choose within which subchapter you want to create this slideshow.

Status: Do you want to publish your slideshow already? Publishing it means it can be used by Teachers, and subsequently Students.
Is it just a draft? You can leave it unpublished, but remember to publish it when you are ready!

You can also import a PowerPoint presentation by clicking on the Import powerpoint button.


Creating new slides

You will see that your slideshow has no slides yet. Click on Add slide to start creating a new slide.

An input field will appear. Give your new slide a name. Click the Save button to save.

You have now created a new slide, but it's still empty. Click on the edit icon to start adding text. Adding text works the same way as when creating a theory page.

In the slides tab, you can edit the texts for each slide and use other options to edit the slides, but you can also change the order the slides appear in. To change this order, simply drag the slides to the desired position by the handles next to them.

The order is saved automatically. You can also choose whether you want to display the slide numbers before the slide names.

You can preview your slide by clicking the view icon or by clicking the icon or by clicking the View slideshow button in the top-right of the screen.

Adding images, video, code, and tables works in the same way as when creating a theory page.
