Question How to rip ppt lecture slides?

I don't know why, but my Anatomy professor's slides are not downloadable. They're up on our school's site, but you can only view them from there.

Is there a way to rip the slides and put them back in a powerpoint the way they are?

I've tried everything, I was thinking of maybe printscreening and then using mspaint, but that would take forever.

Anyone know of any programs that could do this quickly?

if you have a URL where the site is, you can use wget to download it.

You could take screenshotsand then save them as jpegs and then just dump them into ppt - but they might look lousy.

I tried the Wget program, but when I'm in the DOS prompts, it won't connect to the internet. It keeps saying 404 not found. I think it's because I'm behind a school firewall, but I don't really know, and I'm just talking out of my ass.

Is there a simpler "made for dummies" type of program out there?

I had the same problem with a few of my classes.

Ok, so this is where I'm at.

We use this site called Angel, basic school controlled site to see lectures, hand in assignments, etc.

The way they host these files, I can't seem to right click "edit" the PPT slides. There's no Edit option.

I attached a picture so you guys get a better idea of what I mean. I've tried right clicking everything, to "save as", but to no avail.

.swf files are Flash. You should be able to open that in a browser. It sounds like the software your school is using is converting the presentations to Flash and that is why you can't download it as a powerpoint file.

Seems rather counterproductive.

Oh I understand their goal very well; I'm just saying it seems counterproductive to do that.
