An experiment with flash

Someone wrote that it is possible to put PowerPoint into Flash to post on a website. I want to see if I can do it or not.

I had thought to delete this, but I will leave it for the time being at least to see if anyone knows how to make this work better. I have uploaded it to Yahoo briefcase and then linked to it here. It was set up as an automatic presentation, but it is manual in Flash. Is that normal or did I do something wrong?

It would be nice to be able to include presentations like this on class blogs. As my students do presentations throughout the semester, I could post them to the blog so there would be a permanent record of them. But I need to know if what I am doing is what I should be doing. It seems to work, so I guess I am happy. But if anyone can give me some hints as to how to make it work better, I would appreciate it!

Update 1.29.06 Thanks to a note from Joanna, I discovered that no one else could access the file. I moved the file to elgg and I am trying again to see if it will work now.

What post? Did you take it down already? If not, you should know that I can't link to it.

Hello Nancy:
I am Emilia, a portuguese teacher from Portugal. I found your blog through the brasilien Iris and her blog Projectos Colaborativos.
I teach portuguese to kids from 9 to 12 years old but they also learn english. Do you want to start an experience with them using Writely? Do you have pupils so young as mine?
My kids are already using writely for collaborative writting with bresilien kids.
I also have a site about portuguese litterature for kids and youth and it has, or will soon have a english version. You can have a look at
Hope to ear from you soon.
