Has anyone embedded a PPT in a Canvas page?

Rather than giving students a link, it would be nice to display the PPT so they can click through notes while watching a video on the page.

Hey clcavana​,

I can't believe no one else has mentioned this. Canvas has built in support for previewing certain documents such as Word, PDF, and Powerpoint and a lot more. For the full list and more information check out What document types does Canvas convert using the document previewer?

I made a quick video demonstrating how you would add an existing Powerpoint file from your course to a page and enable the auto-inline preview. Let me know if you have any questions.
