Chapter 15. Using PowerPoint's Web Features > Publishing to the Internet

Publishing to the Internet

The World Wide Web has taken the world by storm. Everyone either wants to receive or disseminate information via the Web. PowerPoint makes it easier than ever to convert your presentation into a format that can be viewed by Web browsers, such as Internet Explorer or Netscape Navigator. Before doing so, however, you should consider the following:

  • A Web version of your presentation can be viewed by anyone who has access to your Web server. Unless your server is limited to your company (such as a corporate intranet), anyone from anywhere in the world can look in.

  • A Web version enables your viewers to see the presentation at their convenience. This can be particularly important for global audiences who live in vastly different time zones.

  • You have less control over a Web version of your presentation. No longer can you dictate the sequence of the slides, nor can you add clarifying comments if they are needed.

  • In the case of classroom presentations, will a Web version encourage students to skip class, knowing they can get the presentation off the Web at another time?

  • Will your potential Web audience have the necessary computer hardware and software to view your presentation the way you intended it to appear?
