Summit Support

Submitting Your PowerPoint Presentation

If you are using PowerPoint for your Summit presentation, you must submit the presentation to Classroom Technology and Event Support (CTES) no later than 10am on Thursday, 31 March—absolutely no exceptions!

PowerPoint presentations are submitted through Lyceum. When you registered for the Summit, we asked you if you planned to use PowerPoint or other media. If you told us you were using PowerPoint, you will be added to a Lyceum course that will allow you to upload your PPT presentation. This Lyceum course is called MDS-2016. It will appear in all your Lyceum course list by Monday, 28 March, if you’ve told us you are using PowerPoint.

Naming your PowerPoint file: Please name your PowerPoint file like this:

YOUR LAST NAME_FIRST NAME_PETTENGILL ROOM#_SESSION #.

Example:

Brown_Tracy_G52_3

We will be putting the draft schedule up on the Summit website shortly; you can find the time and location of your presentation by consulting the schedule.

NOTE: Bates Classroom Technology does NOT support Keynote, but you can use Prezi as an alternative to PowerPoint. Prezis are web-based and do not require advance submission.
