By the end of this 2-hour long project-based course, you will create a Google Slides presentation utilizing design tips to increase learner engagement during a presentation or while reviewing the slides solo. By utilizing the functions and options in Google Slides, we are able to create a more attention-grabbing presentation. Simple design ideas can turn a more passive presentation experience into an active presentation experience. Note: This course works best for learners who are based in the North America region. We’re currently working on providing the same experience in other regions.
