Dear LOR user,

Thank you for being a big part of this community. To better support the initiatives around open educational resources in the state of Michigan, all resources on the Michigan Virtual Learning Object Repository (LOR) are being moved to #GoOpen Michigan (link is external) on September 30th, 2018. During the transition, our LOR will be moved to an archived state, not allowing new user registration or new content to be added. An email with more details was sent to registered users of the LOR in September. To make use of the great resources on the platform, we encourage you to create an account and add your own new resources to the #GoOpen Michigan platform (link is external).

Google Slides

Description: 

Google Slides is a free presentation application that allows you to collaborate and create with others simultaneously. 

What We Like: 
  • Provides simple, easy-to-use templates for presentations
  • Can collaborate/edit with others at the same time
  • Always have the latest version of the presentation
  • Question feature for presenter during presentations
  • Easy to share link to slides with others to follow along during class/presentations
  • Easy to embed YouTube videos, images, etc. 
Limitations: 
  • Doesn't have extensive animation features (like PowerPoint - though sometimes this is positive, too)
  • Must have a Google Account to create slides
Classroom Application: 
Students can create a presentation to demonstrate their knowledge
Way for teachers to create warm-up/agenda slide deck and share w/ students, parents, colleagues
