Or have you ever wanted to give a presentation, but weren't sure if the computer available had the right software installed? Or perhaps your school just can't afford the presentation software. In this webinar, we will cover a presentation application that easily solves all of these problems - Google Presentations. In this webinar, join Tia Simmons, Tech Tia, as she shows you step-by-step how to build a Google Presentation and introduces you to some of the newer features of Google Presentations.

Great ideas, thank you!
I liked learning what I can do in Google Slides. Create and edit presentations, edit collaboratively, import .pptx and .pps files and convert them. Then to download presentations as PDF, PPT or.txt. I like to insert images and videos. I would like to publish and embed the presentation into a website also.
Good information

Clear instructions for using Google Slides, including importing from Powerpoint files. Near the end of the webinar, the presenter said there is no way to add narration over the slides, which is correct. However, there is an extension for Slides called Screencastify, and students can narrate while running their slide deck. This will result in the creation of a video, so it will no longer be in Google Slides format, but it may be a useful workaround until Google gets a narration feature added to Google Slides.

Someone deleted all the collaborative notes which were irretrievable except by that specific person, but that wasn't the presenters fault. She did an excellent job of presenting the materials and various options available. She even provided us an opportunity to practice on a slide! Excellent. Highly recommend.
