It keeps telling me it isn’t a proper file. It doesn’t seem to have been saved as a powerpoint but rather a .potx file.

Hi Katrina,

We upload our teaching presentations as template files so the original format remains intact. You shouldn’t have any trouble opening this file in PowerPoint. If you are having trouble opening the file in another program, try looking at that program’s troubleshooting guide.
