    Im a university student and i had my friend send me some lecture presentations by email.
    they are all in .key format and unfortunately i have a hp netbook.
    i need someone to just quickly export the 4 lecture presentations into .ppt format so i can quickly jott down the notes and finish cramming for my exam.
    id get him to do it but he wont answer!!

    if your willing to help post here, will figure out the best way to do it.
    thanks!

    ZIP the files and attach the archive to your next post via the [​IMG] button.
    We'll see what we can do.

    Btw, no need to make more than one thread, especially within five minutes. To edit your thread title, just click on the [​IMG] button on the bottom right of your original post and then click the "Go Advanced" button below your message.

    As far as I know, there is no conversion program for converting Keynote to PPT. However, you can upload them to Slideshare, and then present the presentation using Slideshare in full screen mode.

    This is assuming you will have access to the internet where you are doing the presentation, or that if you load it in the browser beforehand, it will be cached in the event you go offline.

    Here they are, one .zip for every lecture (3) including the .ppt exported file, a .pdf export of the entire presentation with slide numbers, and a .png file with error messages I encountered (missing font - Calibri).

    No problem, could you open the .zip files and .ppt files?

    Interesting subject, though I have found an error maybe on slide 15 in the "midterm" presentation.

    It says "funstionalist" instead of "functionalist" I suppose?

    Anyway, if you have your exam later on, good luck. :)

    No, but I just scanned the slides briefly. The subject (sport and its function in society) is interesting, how it is delivered to you is something else. That often is boring, especially if the teacher has given this lesson a lot of times, I guess.

    Btw, I advise to play classical music while you study, as it helps you to concentrate better. I do that often at work when I have to do repeating , but complex, tasks. It helps me much better than contemporary music or coffee, though I'm immune to caffein somehow, taurine works better for me.

    Have a look at iTunes > Radio > Classical > Air Classique or some other stations. Though one of them has some really strange interludes (in French), which can be quite annoying sometimes.
