I would be suprised if anything but PowerPoint can be made to work with
PowerPoint.  Corel Presentations is a competitor to Powerpoint.  I would

not expect them to create an export module that would turn a presentation
into PowerPoint.  Short of recreating the presentation in PowerPoint, I
don't think there is an easy alternative, except let her use Corel
Presentaion directly.  Maybe there is some sort of self-running export
option that does not require the Corel presentation program to be loaded on
your school machines first.  Wintel presentation packages are not my strong
suite, so I have never used Corel.
