Getting Started: Google Slides

Overview

Google slides is more than a presentation platform, it’s a shared workspace to communicate, think, and create together. It can be used as:

  • As a virtual whiteboard
  • An art, book, photography, or publishing platform
  • A shared workspace that can be edited by many at the same time
  • A prototype space to understand mechanics and concepts
