It is not uncommon for users to want to upload their own content into our Lesson Library.
For Microsoft formats such as Powerpoint, Word, etc, LearnCube will automatically convert these to a PDF format in order to make it more user-friendly in the whiteboard.
We do this because PDF is a more universally reliable format (able to display on any device) and all users can annotate on a PDF embedded in the LearnCube whiteboard (users cannot annotate on a Powerpoint in the same way).
Also, we've found PowerPoints often become very large files when they include imagery and multi-media, video, etc.
What we recommend is to convert PowerPoints to PDF
- Convert your PowerPoints to PDF for free using ilovepdf.com before if you wish
- For large files of over 10MB, we recommend you also compress large files so they load faster even if your students have low bandwidth.
