To create a slide show with narration, you can use PowerPoint, or Keynote, for example. (Note: In some cases of compatible soft wares, adding narration may not be possible). If you are using Power Point, try searching “making power point videos” and you will find many instruction manuals and you tube videos.

  1. First, create your Power Point slides without narration as in any presentation. Name and save the file.
  2. Using the Slide Show function, create your video with narration within 15 minutes.
  3. Save the recorded video (.pptx).
  4. Review your presentation (F5 key) and check if the video runs smoothly and is within 15 minutes.

  6. Please upload the file following this instruction:
