Computer programs

My hospital recently removed Microsoft Office and started using Google Drive.  I was just getting ready to purchase the newer version of the childbirth class PowerPoint but I don't know if I'll be able to use it using Google Slides.  Is it going to mess up the embedded videos?  Does anyone have experience with this?  Any info would be appreciated.

Hi Doris,  We will have Erin give you a call. We can help you decide what works best for you. 

I sent her an email but she is out of the office until tomorrow.  I'm sure she will get back with me.  Thanks!

Hello! Doris and I talked directly about this but for everyone else's information...

Currently, our PowerPoints require Microsoft PowerPoint. They are very large files with numerous videos and graphics so they don't covert to Google Slides at this time. We are looking into this. We recommend contacting your IT Department and requesting that they keep the PowerPoint program on your classroom computers so you can teach your patients. This is the solution that worked for Doris.

If your facility still will not provide you with PowerPoint, there are other options: take in your own laptop that does have PowerPoint for displaying the presentation, or use the video programs instead (available on disc, USB, or as a digital license). Give your Sales Representative a call and she'll be happy to talk through the options with you.

Thanks for the tips Erin!
