Do you know how to make Google Slides more interactive? Did you know that you can make asynchronous learning opportunities for your professional development or training program? This project is for you if these are goals that you have. Learn step by step how to design asynchronous training programs as you develop your own Google slide in this project. Adding interactivity will make your objectives stand out and help your audience see you as credible. We will use SMART goals as an example for this project. By the end of your time in this project you will have a Google Slides Presentation that you can use with navigation. 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.
