What is a google slide? Greg Carver

● Google Slides is an online presentation program, that allows you to present your work with your voice and many
visual options as well. Google slides allow you to create a presentation, edit that presentation, be able to allow
friends or partners to work on the same presentation without being in the same place, also making sharing amongst
each other much simpler.
● Google slides to me resembles powerpoint to me, it offers similar functions and options for presentations. But one
thing it makes easier is sharing the information or presentation itself amongst each other much easier.
