3 Google Slides Add-ons for Creating Engaging Presentations

September 29, 2017
As we have seen in yesterday’s post, Slides has recently introduced a number of interesting new features. For instance users are now able to embed and sync slides across multiple presentations. They can also integrate Google Keep notes into Slides presentations with a single click. But the most important new feature is add-ons. After Docs and sheets, Slides now support add-ons bringing thus more capabilities and functionalities to your presentations. From the few early add-ons that have been added to Slides  we selected for you the ones below. You can use these tools to create and insert a wide variety of content to your slides including: interactive questions, formative assessment questions, diagrams, concept maps and many more. Check them out and share with us your feedback in our Facebook page.

1- Lucidchart Diagrams for Slides

‘Add visuals to any presentation: Spice up your slides with Lucidchart diagrams to keep your audience engaged, clarify any concept, and make your message stick. With the Lucidchart Diagrams for Google Slides add-on, instead of having to export your diagram to slides, you can insert it directly from within the Google environment. This add-on works just like our Google Sheets and Docs add-ons. Start your free trial!’

2- Pear Deck

Pear Deck add-on for Slides allow you to add formative assessments and interactive questions to your presentations. Some of the interactive questions you can add include: Warm-ups and Temperature Checks, reflections and exit tickets , text and number response prompts, drawing and draggable Slides and many more.

3- Adobe Stock

‘Adobe Stock integrates seamlessly with Google Slides so you can easily search for images without leaving your presentation. Search by keyword or categories, and preview images inside your presentations. You can also use the power of Adobe Sensei by easily uploading an image to perform a visual search. When you’re ready to license an image, simply connect with your existing Adobe Stock account or sign up for one.’
