Google Slides is a free cloud-based presentation program available to all BISD employees and students in grades 3-12th grade that is similar to Microsoft's PowerPoint but boasts improved collaboration features. Tell stories that matter using Google Slides. Make your ideas shine with a variety of presentation themes, fonts, embedded video, animation, and more. Access, create, and edit your presentations anywhere and from any device using your BISD GAFE (Google Apps for Education) account, even when there is no connectivity. With Google Slides, everyone can work collaboratively in the same presentation. Users can share presentations with anyone, edit in real-time, chat, and comment to peer review content. PowerPoint files can be converted into a Google Slide and Google Slides can be exported as a PowerPoint file. All edits and changes to a presentation are automatically saved. Users can access revision history to view and restore older versions of the same presentation.
