Why use Google Slides?

Faculty can use Google Slides for lessons that require a slide deck presentation. You can easily create professional-looking presentations from any classroom or any computer. Access your presentations on the web rather than emailing them or carrying them around  on a USB stick.

Go one step further by making interactive presentations, worksheets, and images. This could make your lesson more engaging and fun.

Google Slides is not only easy to access for faculty, it is easy to share, especially with students. Google Slides can generate a shareable link like the other Google suite products so students can access your slides in class or at home. [More Information]
