Slides allow you to share information with students, add instructions to a questionnaire, and explain theoretical concepts.

On Wooclap, you have two options:

1. Upload a presentation

You can upload a presentation you've created somewhere else (PowerPoint, PDF, Keynote, Google Slides).

Please note that the files you upload will be converted into images, and that you will therefore lose all animations and links you inserted into your slides. For PowerPoint files, there is an alternative: our PPT add-in allows you to insert questions directly into your file.

If you don't have any animations, but you wish to add links to your presentation, you can do so with the feature described below.

2. Use the various templates of the Slides interaction. 

These templates use a language called "Markdown" to format text.

If you don't know Markdown, that's not an issue: we've created various templates specifically so you don't have to worry about it. If you are of a curious nature, however, you can find more information here.

When you select a template, you immediately get a preview of the slide's layout, and the field in which to fill in your text already contains the Markdown syntax corresponding to that layout. All that's left to do is to fill in your own content in the corresponding place.

In other words, fill in your content in the upper field - titled "Text" - and you can see how that content will be displayed in the bottom field - titled "Preview".

Templates

  • Title slide

  • Bullet points & Numbered bullet points

  • Links

  • Quotes

  • Slide with an image

You can also add a picture to your slides. There are two possibilities:

1. You can add a picture as a background by clicking on the logo in the upper left corner. The picture will be imported from your computer files;

2. You can also add a picture to your slides via the markdown syntax: ![alt-text](link to the image). The image will be inserted directly in the slide, between text lines.

Here are a couple of things to keep in mind while adding a picture to a slide via the markdown syntax ![alt-text](link to the image):

  • The image must be hosted somewhere on the Internet (and not on your computer) to appear on the slide;

  • The text written in between square brackets (instead of “alt-text”) is meant to give information about the image for visually impaired people through the use of screen readers.
