Hey Linda,

You can definitely use PowerPoint for your course, although you need voiceover for sure and it can't just be you flipping slides. Keep in mind that although this is allowed, it may not convert well because it can be very boring to watch for people. I personally wouldn't watch a course with just PowerPoint as I would rather just get access to the PowerPoint file myself and save time.

"Instructors can use presentations from PowerPoint or Keynote to create video lectures for their courses, provided they include audio narration and are converted into a video file format (.MP4, .WMV, or .MOV files)."

Hi Vigasan,

 

Apologies as I need some clarification - am I right to say if I want to do Voice Over presentation, I will need to create powerpoint slides, then record a narration, and thereafter convert the slide show (with narration) into a video file before it can be accepted by Udemy ?

 

Is it better to insert audio to the slides or to record within Powerpoint itself?

 

Appreciate some guidance as am a newbie. Many thanks!
