I am putting a PowerPoint presentation together. My version is 2010. How can I insert slides from other classmates (different versions) PowerPoint slides into mine?

Open both presentations, then drag and drop slides from one to the other.

This may not work across versions, specifically going from 2003 to 2007+, and if the slide master is different. But it is a possible solution. – user3463 Jan 30 '11 at 7:17

In PowerPoint 2010, here's how you can insert slides from another presentation to a presentation you are currently working on:

  1. With your current presentation open, go to Home tab → Slides group → New SlideReuse Slides...

    enter image description here

  2. The Reuse Slides task pane will appear on the right side of the PowerPoint window. On the Reuse Slides task pane, click Browse and click Browse File...

    enter image description here

  3. The Browse dialog box appears allowing you to locate the presentation that contains the slide you want to insert to your current presentation. Select the presentation you want and click Open.

    enter image description here

  4. The slides from that presentation will now be listed in the Reuse Slides task pane.

    enter image description here

  5. Click the slide you want to insert and it will be added automatically to your current presentation.

This is for PowerPoint 2007, but it will work for you.
