  • Hi.
    Looks great, but why won't the starter activity work on my laptop? Is there something that I first need to install? Thanks!

    • Hi AmandaBC,
      Sorry to hear you're having a few issues.
      To enable our lovely PowerPoints to work properly, I would recommend right clicking on the pink 'Download' button, saving it to your desktop then right clicking on the folder and selecting 'Extract all'. This will save all files in the same location. When viewing the PowerPoint, select 'Enable Editing' if this is displayed as an option. Any animations, links or other special features will work best when the PowerPoint is viewed as a Slideshow. To do this, simply click on the Slideshow tab and select 'View from beginning'.
      I have also let our lovely design team know.
      Hope this helps. If you need further guidance please get back in touch and we'll find a solution! :)
