Google Slides Help

Using your own sound and video files with google slides via google drive.

Ok, you recorded a sound file or a video for your presentation. In google slides you cannot insert video and audio files like you can in power point, you can only 'link' to them.

Use google drive to upload and store your sound and video files and make links to them from your presentation:

1. Upload your audio or video files into your google drive logged in the same google account you are using for your presentation.

2. While in the Drive you need 2 things for each uploaded file: Edit ‘Share’ settings adding your teacher, and get the link. You can do it in one step: Right-click file you want to use and go to ‘Get link’, Ctrl and C to copy the blue highlighted link, then click 'sharing settings': Add your teacher, change to 'Can view', Done.

you can always do these settings separate: Right-click file and go to ‘Share’ or Right-click file and go to ‘Get link’

3. Go to your presentation and Ctrl and V to paste the link where you would like to have it. You can either use it as is and paste the whole link, but if you want to make it look more organized: you can write text like ‘my sound’ and paste link in the ‘link’ properties of that text by selecting text and clicking  link icon on top. Same goes for making links out of pictures.

And the last thing to do is to share the actual presentation in your google drive with your teacher
