  2. How to Make Google Slides Interactive with Edform

  3. By Edform Team

If the studying goes online, the shift from the classic learning methods occurs immediately. Already familiar presentations cease to amaze everyone. However, they can be improved with the help of interactive elements. Let's consider the benefits of slideshow in the educational process and how to add interactivity to a presentation.

Why is it vital to accompany the lecture with slides?

Presentations are related to the visual communication channel that plays a massive role in the learning process. Indeed, by using both the auditory and visual channels, the teacher can attain excellent results in student achievement.

The advantages of a presentation lecture are presenting the material in a structured form, covering all the necessary material, and sufficiently illustrating it using tables, graphs, diagrams, and figures.

The use of presentation materials allows:

  • control the lecture due to the explicit structuring of the visual material
  • not to be afraid to miss some vital information
  • ensure the active involvement of students at different levels of knowledge, since it allows, without the particular expenditure of study time, to remind the audience of the material of the previously studied disciplines;

During online education, it is necessary to improve the quality of the lecture presentations and not turn them into a simple slideshow. 

To do this, you can add various elements, such as embedded video files, audio and interactive tasks that students can complete at the end of the lecture.

Presentations allow you to actively use graphic materials for illustration: vector and bitmap drawings, diagrams and graphs, technological schemes, etc. The primary purpose of using illustrative materials is to increase the effectiveness of the presentation. 

Statistics show that 68% of people who use presentations and are listeners or users claim that interactive slides are more catchy. 

Therefore, if you want students to remember any crucial material, make your presentation interactive with elements for independent study using Edform. 

Step-by-step instructions for turning your regular Google Slides into interactive ones:
