Google Slides

Now you can easily embed Google Slides into your ClassX courses, lessons, and topics.

Google Slides is a presentation program and it is a part of a free, web-based software office suite provided by Google along with its Google Drive service. It helps users to create, edit and upload presentations online while collaborating with other users in real-time.

You can embed Google Slides in your ClassX courses without the need to entangle around with embed codes. All you need is the URL of the presentation that you have published on Google slides.

Here’s how to embed any Google Slides into your ClassX course, using just the URL.

Step 1: Set Up Your Google Slides

Before you can embed your Google Slides into your ClassX course, you need to make sure that it is published and visible to others to see.

  • Go to the Google Slides account.
  • You can either create or upload the presentation you want to embed.
  • Click on the File option, and choose “Publish to the Web” in the dropdown.

  • Click on “OK” button in the dialog box that appears after clicking on the publish button.
  • Google will now give you a URL for the document. Copy this URL. You can use this link to embed it in your ClassX course.

Before you go any further, let’s check that your URL can be embedded on other sites …

Paste the URL into a different browser where you aren’t logged into Google. Can you still see the presentation? If you can’t, then the Google Sheets file hasn’t been correctly published to the web.

Step 2: Embed Google Slides & Publish Your Course

Now you have the Google Slides URL, you can add it to your ClassX course.

  • Go to your course.
  • Edit the course, lesson, or topic.
  • Click the + icon in the editing area.

  • Enter the URL for your Google Slides presentation:

  • Click the “Embed” button and you’ll now see your Google Slides embed:
