How to share presentations online (or host on a website)


You can share interactive, animated and fully functional presentations online!

This avoids the problems of sending presentations via email: such as high resolution images and videos, making the file size quickly mount up. And fixes the issue with fonts not embedding (which you can’t do on a Mac, but you can do on a PC providing it’s the right font type!). Sharing a presentation online also solves the problem of which PowerPoint version viewers have installed… and of course the potential issues of viewing on a Mac vs PC.

Here’s how to share your presentation online:

1) Simply convert PowerPoint to HTML5 to share your presentation online

We’ve used software from iSpring Solutions. They offer a free trial so you can give it a go, or we can convert for you.

Take a look at the HTML5 examples we have created below:

Access Sport sample
Video overlay sample

2) Once converted, just upload the files to your own website

Whilst you may need to ask your web dev team to do this, it’s simply uploading files. No coding, and is easy to do yourself with an FTP uploader.

Once uploaded, you can send a link to your presentation that can be opened in any web browser. Safe in the knowledge that fonts, animations and visuals will show up as expected with quick load times. Naturally – test the results before sharing 🙂

The conversion software at iSpring handles most animation effects. There are a few it doesn’t (yet) convert. The most significant lack is the Morph transition. This isn’t a deal breaker of course, there are traditional animation methods that can replace the morph effect. (Ahhh, what we used in the good ol’ days!)

And that’s it.
