If you are looking for a way to share slide presentations with students, you might try embedding a Google Slides presentation directly into a Canvas page or assignment. Sharing a presentation this way allows students to view the presentation without leaving Canvas or downloading any files. They can advance the slides at their own pace, or click “play” to have them automatically advance according to the timing that you provide. Watch the video tutorial below to learn more.
Note: the same basic process will also allow you to embed other Google tools (such as Docs or Sheets) into Canvas pages or assignments.
