Printing Microsoft PowerPoint Documents from WebCT

Step 1:
The first thing to do is to login to your WebCT account. If you do not know your login information, you may contact the Help Desk at (361) 698-2336 in order to retrieve your username and password.

Step 2:
Once logged in, browse through the course until you find the MS PowerPoint presentation you wish to print. Click on its link or button, and when the following dialog box appears be sure to click Save.

Step 3:
Once you've clicked Save, another dialog box will show.

On the left-hand side of the dialog box, click Desktop. You don't need to bother changing the filename unless you wish to do so. Save the document.

Step 4:
Once you've saved the PowerPoint file, minimize any running applications so you may view the desktop. Locate the file icon with the filename you saved and open it. It should open in Microsoft PowerPoint.

Step 5:
With the PowerPoint document open, click File > Print...

Step 6:
In the Print dialog box, locate the Print What: drop-down menu. Here you may choose what you want to print. You may print the slides in a slide per page form, or you may print them in a handout form, where you have multiple frames included on one sheet of paper. You may also print the Notes Pages of the document or the document's Outline View. Make your selection using the drop-down menu, and to the right you may modify any settings necessary. Click the Preview button to preview your document. When you are finished, click Ok. Your document should now print in the proper format.
