Transcript

In this video, you’ll add text to the title slide for your presentation, then add three slides with headings.

These slides will describe the steps or jobs you are communicating to your audience.

To start, click in the text box on the title slide, and type in a title for your presentation.

Add a subtitle that further describes your presentation, or use the subtitle to add your name or job title.

Next, add a slide to your presentation.

Select a slide layout from the dropdown menu.

If your presentation will have several sections, add a “section header” slide or add a section title and a description of what that section will be about.

If you plan to describe your job without adding sections, choose a slide layout with space for a title and one or two blocks of text.

Other slide layouts give you places to add images or charts later, or are designed to communicate specific information, like numbers.

Add at least three slides to your presentation.

Plan out what you need to communicate about your job, and choose the slide layouts that best fits the information you will share.

Next, type in titles for each slide or section heading.

These titles will help you plan out what text you will need to add to each slide in the next video.

Add a title to each slide you inserted in your presentation.

Make them as descriptive as possible to help your audience understand the job or process.

All the changes you make in Google Slides save automatically.

If you close out of your presentation, you can access it again through Google Drive.

After you have added at least three new slides to your presentation and typed in a title for each slide, move on to the next video to add text to your slides.

Now, it’s your turn: Add a title and subtitle to title slide.

Insert at least three new slides.

Select slide layouts that fit what you are communicating.

Type in titles on the slides you added.
