Professor: Uploading your Slide Presentation (New Top Hat)

Uploading your lecture slides into Top Hat allows for a seamless integration, as you can insert your Top Hat questions and discussions directly into the presentation!

To upload your still/static PowerPoint or PDF slide deck into Top Hat simply click on the blue Create button on the left side of your screen, and from there select the Upload Slides option.

This will provide for you with the file upload framework in which you can click the blue Browse your computer button and select a document from your computer’s hard drive.

Once uploaded your slide deck will be contained in a presentation folder and clicking on its title will expand the folder to reveal the series of individual slides. To place a previously created question or discussion in your presentation you simply have to drag the question or discussion from its original location and drop it between the slides of your choosing. A grey bar will indicate for you where you’re about to release your question or discussion.

Presenting your slides when you get to class is easy. For more on that, please see here: Professor: Presenting your Slide Presentation
