Description of work undertaken during porting:

None, but more work could be suggested.

Problems encountered:

Only certain page formats can be rendered, and these do not include pdf, ppt or html. An XML-based tool might be more useful. Plays through surce folder from resources in sorted order so must be careful to name the pages.

Ongoing support issues:

Tool use case:

Store a presentation under ``Resources/ presentations/ *new folder*'' each page is a separate slide. The tool plays through them in sorted order. Pages must be in a format which can be rendered within HTML, e.g. .png, .jpg, .gif, etc.

Help information for tool users:

Use Sakai Help tool.
