Uploading videos to your YouTube channel is a great way to create and store a back up. You may already have videos or PowerPoints that are ready to upload have 

Convert old reel to reel movies
There are companies who can do this for you. 

Convert old PowerPoints from

Any presentation that was made from any software and can be used if the presentation can be saved/converted to mp4 for uploading to YouTube.
  • PowerPoint 
  • Prezi
  • Haiku Deck

The following are not able to save or convert as .mp4 directly. If created in one of these they can be opened by PowerPoint or other software and then convert.
