Google Slides – A Great Collaboration Tool

In this post Joshua Kim discusses Google Slides, a great tool for teams collaborating on presentations. Recently I collaborated with two other people on a presentation for a workshop we taught. We imported PowerPoints into Google Slides and made a lot of changes to our original presentation. We uploaded it to Google Drive so we could make those changes. We used Google Slides presenter mode during the workshop. It worked beautifully. The Slides presenter works much better than the PowerPoint presenter, which is sometimes cranky and makes it hard to navigate though  a presentation. Google Slides has all the features most people will need without the mostly useless bloat of Microsoft PowerPoint. I really like Slides.
