I am understanding that if I log out of the session that I will lose my pages.
This brings up a question. What happens if my PC crashes in the middle of the presentation? Will I lose the slides?
Most likely. Again, review Steve's training sessions or look through the Blackboard Documentation here:
I believe you can save your files as whiteboard files and this prevents your slides from going away; however, you lose your animations and transitions. I'm not 100% on this, though.
