How to add power points to my course

I have my course already done in power point and would like to upload it in units in a new course I'm building in CoursePress. I've tried to upload it by adding media, didn't work. I'm a newby at this and am at a loss to figuring out how to add the ppts.
Please advise.

    HI Joan,

    Welcome to the WPMU Dev community and thank you for your question.

    What's the exact problem are you facing uploading power point files?

    Are you getting the following error message?

    Sorry, this file type is not permitted for security reasons.

    If yes then you can fix the above issue by adding the following code in the functions.php file of your child theme or add it in your site using any of the following plugins.

    http://wordpress.org/plugins/add-actions-and-filters/

    add_filter('upload_mimes', 'custom_upload_mimes');
    function custom_upload_mimes ( $existing_mimes = array() ) {
        // add your extension to the array
        $existing_mimes['ppt|pot|pps'] = 'application/vnd.ms-powerpoint';
    
        return $existing_mimes;
    }

    Best Regards,

    Good morning
    Please I tried to upload the powerpoint into my course when creating the unite, Even if I click on upload media, it does not show powerpoint uploaded in the box ,
    I have tried to install google doc embed plugin, the coursepress interface does not have the visual editor and text editor at the top of the course creating too , so There is no way to even embed or insert the powerpoint that I have uploaded.

    Please this is headache for me as most of my courses are in powerpoint .
    Thank you
