How to embed a powerpoint presentation:
Upload your powerpoint presentation to your Google Docs acount and allow Google to convert it to its own format (or create a new presentation in Google Docs itself).
- Open the presentation in the google docs interface.
- Click on the arrow next to “share” in the top right corner of the screen.
- Select “publish/embed”.
- You will now be shown a link at which the presentation can be publicly viewed and an html code snippet that will allow it to be embedded in a web page.
The public viewing page also has the option to download the presentation as a pdf file which can be very useful.
The ability to convert a PowerPoint .ppt file to Google Docs format is limited to simpler presentations, but its always worth a try.
