Embedding Google Slides: Why?

  • The slides are more visible and potentially more likely to be reviewed.
  • When embedded any hyperlinks set-up in Google Slides will still work. This means that students can be directed to further resources from lecture slides but also that Google Slides are a great way of presenting content in Moodle. Make a single slide presentation and add useful hyperlinks to a diagram or image. See the Differentiation section of this toolkit for an example.
  • You could share the edit permissions elsewhere on the page and then students can collaboratively produce a resource that can be viewed by all.
