Professor: Can I edit a PowerPoint presentation in Top Hat?

We recommend waiting until you have a final version of your PowerPoint (PPT) presentation before uploading it into Top Hat, as you will not be able to revise it once it has been uploaded. The reason for this is because uploaded slide presentations are processed in such a way as to provide you with the ability to annotate your slides within Top Hat. As a result, should you feel you want to make revisions to a previously uploaded PPT presentation, you'll simply want to make the edits on your hard drive version and then upload the revised version into Top Hat when you're ready.
