Convert PowerPoint presentations to HTML5 format, publish them on learning management systems or FTP servers, as well as preview them on mobile browser emulators, all with the help of this useful Office add-in
HTML5Point is an interesting and useful PowerPoint add-in that, as you may have guessed just by reading its name, allows you to convert PowerPoint presentations to HTML5 format, supported by a broad range of both modern desktop and mobile browsers.
Streamlined installation and smooth Office integration
Evidently, in order to take advantage of everything this PPT to HTML5 converter and publisher has to offer, Microsoft Office needs to be present on your computer’s system. The add-in undergoes a streamlined and surprise-free installation process, just like any other run-of-the-mill app.
Once installed, it automatically integrates itself with PowerPoint’s ribbon toolbar. Either directly open PowerPoint or launch HTMl5Point and start PowerPoint from the add-in’s startscreen, and you will notice that there’s a new tab present within the Microsoft-vetted utility.
Offers you three modes for converting and publishing your presentations
Simply load the presentation, select the slides and hit the “Publish” button from the HTML5Point tab. You should be greeted by a compact hovering window that basically offers you three possibilities to publish your PPT file, namely on your computer’s hard drive, to Learning Management System or even to an FTP folder.
The first is method is, as expected, by far the easiest of the lot, as you only need to name the output file and choose the location, and fiddle about with some self-explanatory, general settings.
Publish PPTs to LSM or FTP servers, and preview them using the built-in mobile browser emulator
It should come as no surprise that the latter two, namely LMS and FTP, require a bit more attention on your part, mainly for editing the basic connection settings. Once you are done, simply click the Publish/Upload button from the bottom part of the window.
If everything goes well, you should be greeted by an, even more, compact window that allows you to instantly view the file in the output folder or preview it in HTML form on an iPad, iPhone, and Android device browser emulator.

Taking everything into consideration, HTML5Point proved itself to be a very efficient, easy-to-use and handy application that allows you to convert your PowerPoint presentations to HTML or even directly publish them to FTP servers or learning management systems, without much effort on your behalf.
