Professor: Can I upload my Keynote presentations?

Top Hat currently supports the upload of still/static PDF and PowerPoint (PPT) format slides. If Keynote is your tool of choice however, not to worry, you’ll simply want to export your Keynote presentation as a PDF prior to uploading into Top Hat.

To do so, with your Keynote presentation open, select File, followed by Export to, and then PDF.

This will provide for you the export window where you can select the parameters under which you'd like your slide deck exported. If you have bulleted lists that appear one bullet at a time we recommend selecting the box next to Print each stage of builds to ensure this effect remains after export!

Once exported, you can simply upload your newly created PDF slide presentation into Top Hat! For instructions on this process please see here: Professor: Loading, Presenting, and Sharing Your Slides (Old Top Hat) or Professor: Uploading your Slide Presentation (New Top Hat)
