When you’re giving a presentation, you want to impress your audience and make sure they see you as credible. Whether you want to win the next big contract or simply inform, a well-designed presentation can make all the difference. One way to make your presentation stand out is by making it interactive. Interactive presentations are a great way to present information while keeping your audience engaged.
Before we dive in, it’s important to define what we mean by ‘interactive presentation’. ‘Interactive’ is sometimes used to describe presentations that include quiz questions or audience participation – that’s not what we’re talking about here. When we say ‘interactive’ we’re talking about a clickable presentation that uses hyperlinks to help users navigate to different sections. A presentation with hyperlinks is ‘interactive’ because it allows the user to choose what information they view, and in what order. As a general rule of thumb, an interactive presentation works well when your audience needs to engage directly with what’s on the screen, putting them in control of how they digest the information. In this blog post, we’ll walk through how to make an interactive presentation in Google slides.
Technical aspects, step-by-step
Now that we’re on the same page, let’s delve into how to actually create an effective interactive presentation in Google Slides. It’s easier than you might think.
Start by opening a new presentation! From the Google Slides homepage , look to the top left and click the Blank button to open a new presentation. This is your blank slate from which to create an outstanding interactive presentation!
Google Slides automatically inserts a title slide when you open a new presentation, so all you need to do is click on the title text box and type in a title. Make the title something clear and catchy, that your audience can easily understand.
Now, let’s move on to the all-important menu slide. We’re going to create something that looks like a button, so that your audience knows it’s clickable. Later on, we’ll add in hyperlinks. You can use any shape for your button, but rectangular shapes with rounded corners often look the most ‘button-like’. First, locate the Shape button on the toolbar in slides, and select a shape. Then, double click on the slide and that shape will appear. Click and drag using the nodes along the edges of the shape to change its size.
You can add labels either by typing directly on to the shape, or by clicking the text box button (also on the toolbar) and positioning a text box on top of the shape. You might also want to add a small arrow shape on top of your button, to help show that the button is clickable.
If you’ve got a more artistic temperament, this is an opportunity to be creative! Your button doesn’t have to be made from shapes. The buttons on the menu slide in our example presentation are actually images. Feel free to get those artistic juices flowing, but keep in mind that your buttons need to look clickable. One way of doing this is by adding a drop shadow or border. To add a border, use the border color and border weight buttons, found on the toolbar.
To insert a drop shadow just right click , then select Format options , and check the box for Drop shadow .
You could also make your buttons a contrasting color from the background and other text – however, avoid colors that are too bright, as this can be distracting.
This first button you have created is the basis for your menu. When you’re happy with how it looks, replicate it so that the number of buttons corresponds to the number of sections in your presentation. You can do this by copying and pasting. Simply select the entire button – click with your mouse and drag over the button so all elements are highlighted – then copy and paste it by right clicking , selecting Copy and then Paste however many times you need. Edit the text of each button to correspond to the section of the presentation it will link to. Next, ensure that the buttons are aligned in some sort of order. You can select various buttons and then align or distribute them as you like using the alignment tools found under the Arrange tab.
Note: If you decide to use icons or imagery, it’s a good idea to make sure the meaning is clear. For example, we all know that the house symbol mean ‘go to the home page’. There’s no point using a zebra icon to return to the homepage, because people will get confused. Stick to what people find familiar, good navigation is about ease of use!
Tip: To use icons in your interactive presentation in Google Slides, click the Add – ons tab, select Get add-ons , and then select the Insert icons add-on.
Then, under the Add – ons tab, a new option will appear which is Insert icons for Slides . Hover over this, and select Open sidebar to select icons .
Then, once the sidebar appears, ensure that the icon set selected on the drop-down menu is ‘Material Design.’
Create section header slides for each section in your presentation. Do this by navigating to the top of the page, and clicking New slide on the top left of the tool bar. Repeat this step as many times as necessary. Next, build as many buttons as you need for the subsection using the steps outlined above. You can also simply copy and paste the buttons you’ve already created, and just edit the text.
Add the information you want to include in each section. If this is images, like in our example presentation, then insert images using the Insert tab.
If this is text, type on the slide using a text box. However, it’s best to use visuals instead of long paragraphs of text. Keep your message clear and succinct.
Repeat steps 4 and 5 for each section. Make sure each section has a header slide, with buttons if necessary. Look through your presentation up to this point – make sure all the sections are ordered correctly, and that there is a header slide at the beginning of each.
Return to your initial menu slide. Make transparent shapes to cover each ‘button’ you have created. We will turn these transparent shapes into hyperlinks that allow users to navigate through your deck. First, click the Shape button on the toolbar, and then create a shape that covers the button that you have created, but not any white space outside them. Then, select the shape and click the Fill color button on the toolbar, select Transparent from the dropdown menu.
Place these transparent shapes over the top of every button in your deck. Using transparent shapes in this way makes it much easier to edit the hyperlinks if needed, and also makes it less likely that a user will miss a clickable area!
Now we are ready to hyperlink each button! Select the first transparent box on your menu slide, right click, then select Link and choose Slides in this presentation . From here, choose the slide you want your button to navigate to when clicked.
Tip: If your slide has a title, it will have the same title in the link section, making it easier to find. After you have linked these two slides the link will stay connected to the specific slide, not the slide number – so it doesn’t matter if you move things around.
Repeat this process for all buttons, so that each one links to the correct slide.
Create buttons to return to the main menu. To do this, follow the steps outlined previously and use a transparent box that links back to the main menu slide. If you have different subsections within a section, you can also create a button linking back to the section title slide from each subsection.
Interactive presentations in Google Slides: Beyond the basics
Following these steps will give you a fully interactive presentation in Google Slides. But if you want to go beyond the basics, here are some tips and tricks that will help your interactive deck be even more intuitive and user friendly.
An effective menu slide is key
The centerpiece of a good interactive presentation is an effective menu slide that is clearly navigable, has a deliberate spatial layout, and is visually appealing. For example, the buttons on this menu slide clearly indicate the separate sections in our presentation . The arrangement of your buttons helps the user understand your presentation’s structure, so make sure they are arranged logically.
Your presentation needs to be visually engaging
We at BrightCarbon are particularly passionate about this point – far too often slides look dull and drab – and we think it’s important to be the change you want to see in the presentation world! It would be impossible to cover all the ways you can make your deck visually appealing in a short blog post – the important point is to consider the overall aesthetics of each slide and the presentation as a whole. If you’re looking for some design inspiration, check out this article about making slides look great using images.
Make navigation as simple as possible
Your menu slide is the jumping-off point to the different sections of your presentation – but constantly exiting present mode to return to your menu slide can break the flow. In a normal presentation there isn’t an effective way of returning to the main slide without clicking back through all the content you’ve already shown. As you want to be able to go through your presentation in a non-linear fashion you need an easy way to return to your jumping-off point. Place a button at the end of each section that links to the original menu slide, so you don’t have to exit the presentation once you start.
Provide your audience with signposts
You want your audience to understand where they are within the presentation, providing them with signposts is an easy way to achieve this. A signpost can be a header slide at the beginning of the section or small indicator icons throughout a given section. It can also be a slide or button at the end of each that clearly includes options to either return to the main menu or go straight into the next section. Make it easy for your audience to follow the flow of your deck.
Be strategic when positioning buttons
Consider the location of buttons on the slide. If a button is at the end of a section and returns the user to the main menu, it’s probably best to put it at the bottom right, as in the West we tend to read from left to right, top to bottom. Think about where best to position buttons so the placement is consistently, and so they don’t get in the way of your main content. Take a look at the above screenshot – we’ve positioned our section buttons so they are clearly visible, but don’t dominate the slide.
Make sure you keep the best practices in mind, as they will help you make a clear roadmap that runs throughout your slides. You’re well on your way to creating a great interactive presentation in Google Slides, just one last thing to do – get started!

How to change slide size in Google Slides

Google Slides offers a highly intuitive interface that makes creating an impressive presentation simple. One example of this is that, when you open a new presentation, Google Slides opens a 16:9 widescreen deck template that fits most laptop screens, tablets and projectors. But what if you want a different look?…
Is there a way to send an interactive slideshow with hyperlinks to students that allows them to click outside to YouTube and click to other slides, but does NOT allow them to edit the presentation? Thanks!!
Hi Adam, There’s an easy fix for this problem. All you need to do is share the presentation as “view only” with your students. To do this, click the share button as you normally would, then click the pencil icon that is to the right of the “People” bar, and select “can view” from the drop down menu. This will still let your students use the links within the presentation as well as any external links, but won’t let them make any edits to the presentation itself. Hope this helps!
Mabey make them a commenter on the slideshow?
Yeah true that problem could be fixed and they should be able to!
When I share my presentations in present mode the presentation bar that shows up interferes with any buttons I have added. Is there a way to remove that so that only the arrow keys or buttons can be used, or is there a way to change it’s size? I makes the buttons almost useless.
Hi Kera, unfortunately there’s no way to move the presentation bar once in present mode, it’s very frustrating! The best solution is to move the buttons so that they aren’t on the bottom left of the slide. Hope this helps!
Actually there is a way to share without the presentation box there. After you click share to copy the link “choose anyone can view” paste into the task bar and change “edit” to “present” and add @rm=minimal to the end then copy and paste that link to where you are sharing.
Hi kera, this is really helpfull tutorial. I’ve a question….is possible to create a final quiz? I need a presentation with final valutation quiz….is it possible?
Hi Antonio, yes you can use the same method in this post to make a quiz. All you would need to do is create a menu slide with buttons named “Question 1” “Question 2” etc. (or “Round 1” “Round 2” if you wanted to divide questions by round), and link those buttons to slides later in the presentation that included your quiz questions. Then, include a button on your question slides that link back to the main menu slide. Of course, you would still need to keep score outside of slides, as there’s no way for slides to track correct answers to your questions. Hope this helps! 🙂
I have made a 20 slide presentation. I have also made an interactive quiz that has 4 questions with a correct and incorrect slide for each question. That makes 12 slides in the quiz. I want to know if I can put the quiz interactive into a specific slide on the 20 slide presentation?
Hi Kelly, if you want to add your quiz slides into another presentation, you should be able to copy the slides over and the hyperlinks should still link to he correct slides, maintaining all interactivity. Then just continue with your presentation once you reach the final quiz slide, instead of returning to the menu slide. If this isn’t what you’re asking, please clarify what exactly you need help with and I’m happy to help. Thanks!
Hi Ian, Thank you for this tutorial. it is great! I made an interactive quiz, published it and sent the link to someone to test. The tester said all of the buttons and links worked correctly and that he could not advance to the next slide unless he clicked on the “next” or “back” buttons. All good. BUT he COULD mouse scroll through the entire quiz and see all of the questions, correct and inocorrect prompt slides. Is there a way to publish or share without being able to scroll through with the mouse? Thank you again!
Hi Lisa, I’m so glad to hear that you found it helpful! Unfortunately, there’s no way that we are aware of to keep people from scrolling through the deck once it’s been shared. I think the best solution is to just ask the person you share the interactive presentation with to be sure and review in present mode. Thanks!
I used interactive slides to create a classroom scene. There are several slides that are accessed by clicking on hyperlinks in the first slide, and every slide has a link back to slide one.
When I try to publish it to the web, the only options include automatically playing through all the slides, which I don’t want to do. I want them only to go to the slides that they click on.
Hi Julie, unfortunately there’s no way we know of to get around this – when publishing to the web, Slides only allows you to automatically play through all the slides, as you say. If you only need to share with a few people, we would recommend simply sharing directly with them as “view only.”
this is awesome !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! i had no idea on how to get full marks on a project i am doing…. but now my chances have increases by 50% !!! how i love this article….!!!!!! amazing
Hi Bhavya, I’m so glad to hear you found this article helpful!! Good luck on your project!
I found this very useful when producing an interactive display for our art club. However I want to call this display from another programme which deals with several clubs. This I have managed OK but how does the viewer leave the slides presentation and return to the calling programme? I need a QUIT button. I also want to ensure that it all works on tablets and desktops.
Hi Royston, I’m not sure I fully understand your question – you should be able to exit present mode simply by clicking the Escape key. An interactive presentation should work on both tablets and desktops, according to Google Slides. Please clarify and let me know if I can help any more, thanks!
I have the same question as Royston. I know users can press the esc key to exit, however that does not go along with the flow of the presentation. Also, when you press esc, it brings you to the slide show creation view. I want the show to just close on their browser with the click of a “button” on the last slide of the slide show.
On the flip side, when I send users the link to the slide show, and they click on the link, it also brings them to the creation view, so they have to click “present” to see it as intended. Is there a way for me to send a link that will open right to the first slide at full screen, already in “present” view?
I have now found a simple solution to my problem. The slide show contains several menu pages. On each of these I have a Quit button and I link this with the web address of the programme that calls the slide show. This does not send the user to the place on the calling programme which initiated the slide show but in my case this was OK.
I have since modified this so that the Quit buttons lead to the first slide in the slideshow which makes it clear that the button it presents there quits back to the presenting programme but otherwise leaves the user the option of running through the slideshow again.
Is there a way of adding an already interactive PDF to slides and it retain its functionality?
Unfortunately, once you import an interactive PDF into Slides it loses it’s functionality (as it sounds like you’ve already discovered). There’s no easy workaround here, I’m afraid.
Hi! This is really amazing. Thanks for share. I’d like to know if there is anyway to disable navigation through mouseclick, arrow keys or any other way instead of clicking the button links? Because I’m not secure that the viewers will follow the path we create if they can jump slide by slide. Thanks a lot for your attention. =)
Hi Ces, thanks for your question. Unfortunately there’s no easy way that we know of to disable navigating through the presentation but keep the mouse’s other clicking functionality. There’s a way to disable clicking the mouse but still keep keyboard functionality, but this of course doesn’t solve your problem. Sorry about that!
I made a game for students like Jeopardy with columns for each topic area and buttons that show point values fr each question. Students can select the topic and # of points, and a hyperlink will take them to the specific question. I put in back buttons on each question page so they go back to main page. Is there any way to indicate on the main page when a “button” has been opened? Can a hyperlink and animation be embedded so once that button has been clicked it has a different appearance on the main page?
Oh, I really wish that this question had been answered. I’ve been struggling with this for a long time. As far as I can tell, there is no way to do this. It’s a shame that something so easy in PowerPoint is seemingly impossible in Slides.
If I’m wrong, PLEASE correct me. I’d love to have this solved.
I have a question….so we created an interactive slide show for the students with a slide correct-great job slide and a sorry, try again slide. We were able to link each answer to the correct slide or the try again slide, but once it goes there, how do we go back to the previous slide we were at?
Also, if we are presenting our screen to during a google meet are the children able to interact with it if allow anyone with the link to be editors?
You might try adding a ‘back’ button on the bottom right of both the ‘correct’ and ‘try again’ slides, and then link these to the previous slide you were at.
As for your second question, yes that’s right – though it might be better to share the presentation with your students as ‘view only’ as if they are editors they can change the content, but if they are viewers they can’t and still have access to the interactive functionality.
Hope this helps!
I tryed it and wow when i looked it was like wow so i shred it to my teacher ms eunick in bellmere junior public school shes like oh wow!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Would you be concerned about exchanging links?
Switching out links shouldn’t cause any problem – all you need to do is follow the same process for adding a new link, but instead just remove the original and add a new one. Hope this helps!
This is super helpful and I really appreciate all of the time and effort that went into it. From the knowledge shared here, I am hoping you might be able to help me with this question. I want to know if there is a way to stay in Present mode and move things around on the slide. I present google slide shows on my Dell board and it would be so much better if students could come up and manipulate icons etc. while still being in present mode, instead of having to exit out and be in edit mode. Is this even possible, or should I give up trying to figure it out? Thank you so much!
Hi Jo, unfortunately there’s not a way to make any changes from present mode. Slides doesn’t have that type of functionality available. Sorry about that!
Hey! Is there a shorter way to do this?
Hi there, unfortunately there’s no quicker way that we know of!
Is there a way to prevent users from clicking on a slide in present mode and have it advance? This way the user can only advance when clicking on a button with internal links?
Hi Frank, as far as we know there’s no way to do this. Sorry about that!
You guys are the BEST!!!!!! Usually, other websites just don’t help you but you guys helped me a lot.
So glad to hear you found it helpful!
Hey, is there a way to put it to when you click on the image it takes you to the next slide?
Hi there, yes all you would need to do in that case is link the image on the slide to the next slide you want to advance to. Hope this helps!
Is there a way to publish these slides onto sites so the audience can click around on all the links but NOT move automatically forward or backward through the deck? I want people to have to click the “go back” button, and when I click it goes through every slide. (It’s an escape room for my students).
Hi Ali, unfortunately Google Slides doesn’t have the functionality to lock slides. Sorry about that!
Hi! I just created interactive slides for my students that includes slides that go back and forth between “good job!” and “try again!” so that students can go through and self-correct. It works fine when in presentation or slideshow mode and they use a mouse to click the answers. However, I have touch screen laptops and if my students touch the screen instead of the mouse (fine motor issues), the file copies itself and goes out of the slideshow mode. What am I doing wrong or can I not use links between slides without a mouse?
Thanks in advance!
As far as I can tell, that sounds like it might be a hardware issue – is there a way for you to disable the touchscreen feature on the devices themselves? As far as I know there’s nothing that can be done from within Slides.
Sorry about that!

Creating an Interactive Google Slides Presentation on AhaSlides in 3 Simple Steps
Let’s take a look at the 3 easy steps for bringing your interactive Google Slides presentation to AhaSlides. We’ll talk you through how to import, how to personalise and how to up the interactivity of your presentation.
Be sure to click on the images and GIFs for a zoomed-in version .
- On your Google Slides presentation, click on ‘File’.
- Then, click on ‘Publish to the web’.
- Under the ‘Link’ tab, click on ‘Publish (don’t worry about the checkboxes as you can change your settings in AhaSlides later).
- Copy the link.
- Come to AhaSlides and create a Google Slides slide.
- Paste the link into the box labelled ‘Google Slides’ Published link’.
Your presentation will be embedded into your slide. Now, you can set about making your Google Slides presentation interactive!
Many of the presentation display settings on Google Slides are possible on AhaSlides. Let’s take a look at what you can do to show your presentation off in its best light.
Full Screen and Laser Pointer
When presenting, choose the ‘full screen’ option on the toolbar at the bottom of the slide.
After that, select the laser pointer feature to give a more real-time feel to your presentation.
You can auto-advance your slides with the ‘play’ icon in the bottom left corner of your slide.
To change the speed at which the slides advance, click on the ‘settings’ icon, select ‘Auto-advance (when played)’ and choose the speed you want each slide to appear for.
Setting up Speaker Notes
If you want to set up speaker notes, be sure to do this before you publish your Google Slides presentation .
Write your speaker notes into the speaker note box of individual slides on Google Slides. Then, publish your presentation as laid out in step 1 .
You can view your speaker notes on AhaSlides by coming to your Google Slides slide, clicking on the ‘settings’ icon and selecting ‘Open speaker notes’.
If you want to keep these notes for yourself only, be sure to share only one window (the one containing your presentation) when presenting. Your speaker notes will come up in another window, meaning your audience won’t be able to see them.
There are a few ways to maximise the impact of an interactive Google Slides presentation. By adding in AhaSlides’ two-way technology, you can create dialogue via quizzes, polls and Q&As around the subject matter of your presentation.
Option #1: Make a Quiz
Quizzes are a fantastic way to test your audience’s understanding of the subject matter. Putting one at the end of your presentation can really help to consolidate new knowledge in a fun and memorable way.
1. Create a new slide on AhaSlides after your Google Slides slide.
2. Select a type of quiz slide.
3. Fill out the content of the slide. This will be the question title, the options and right answer, the time to answer and the points system for answering.
4. Change the elements of the background. This includes text colour, base colour, background image and its visibility on the slide.
5. If you want to include more quiz slides before revealing the overall leaderboard, click on ‘Remove leaderboard’ in the ‘Content’ tab.
6. Create your other quiz slides and click ‘Remove leaderboard’ for all of them except for the final slide .
Option #2: Make a Poll
A poll in the middle of your interactive Google Slides presentation works wonders for creating a dialogue with your audience. It also helps to illustrate your point in a setting that directly involves your audience , leading to more engagement.
First , we’ll show you how to create a poll:
1. Create a new slide either before or after your Google Slides slide. (Scroll down to find out how to put a poll in the middle of your Google Slides presentation).
2. Select the question type. A multiple-choice slide works well for a poll, as does an open-ended slide or a word cloud.
3. Pose your question, add the options and uncheck the box that states ‘This question has correct answer(s)’
4. You can customise the background in the same way we explained in the ‘ make a quiz ‘ option.
If you want to insert a quiz in the middle of your Google Slides presentation, you can do so in the following way :
1. Create a poll slide in the way we just mentioned and place it after your Google Slides slide.
2. Create a new Google Slides slide after your poll.
3. Paste the same published link of your Google Slides presentation in the box of this new Google Slides slide.
4. At the end of the published link, add the code: &slide= + the number of the slide you want to resume your presentation with . For example, if I want to resume my presentation on slide 15, I would write &slide=15 at the end of the published link.
This method is great for if you want to reach a certain slide in your Google Slides presentation, have a poll, then resume the rest of your presentation afterwards.

Option #3: Make a Q&A
A great feature of any interactive Google Slides presentation is the Q&A . This function allows your audience to pose questions and even answer ones that you’ve posed to them .
Once you import your Google Slides presentation to AhaSlides, you won’t be able to use Google Slides’ in-built Q&A function. However , you can use AhaSlides’ function just as easily!
1. Create a new slide before your Google Slides slide.
2. Select Q&A in the question type.
3. Choose whether or not to change the heading, whether to allow the audience to see each other’s questions and whether to allow anonymous questions.
4. Make sure that the audience can send you questions on all slides .
Using the presentation code, your audience can pose you questions throughout your presentation. You can come back to these questions at any time , whether it’s in the middle of your presentation or after it.
Here are a few features of the Q&A function on AhaSlides:
- Sort questions into categories in order to keep them organised. You can pin important questions to come back to later or you can mark questions as answered to keep track of what you’ve responded to.
- Upvoting questions allows other audience members to make the presenter aware that they would also like another person’s question answered.
- Asking at any time means that the flow of the presentation is never interrupted by questions. Only the presenter is in control of where and when to answer questions.
If you’re after more tips on how to utilise Q&A for the ultimate interactive Google Slides presentation, check out our video tutorial here .
If you’re in any doubt about why you would want to embed a Google Slides presentation into AhaSlides, let us give you 4 reasons .
1. More Ways to Interact
While Google Slides has a nice Q&A feature, it lacks a lot of other features that foster interaction between presenter and audience.
If a presenter wants to gather information via a poll, for example, they would have to poll their audience before the presentation began. Then, they would have to quickly arrange that information into a self-made bar chart, all while their audience sits silently on Zoom. Far from ideal, for sure.
Well, AhaSlides lets you do this on the fly .
Simply pose a question on a multiple choice slide and wait for your audience to answer. Their results appear attractively and instantaneously in a bar, donut or pie chart for all to see.
You can also use a word cloud slide to gather opinions about a certain topic either before, during or after you present it. The most common words will appear larger and more centrally, giving you and your audience a good idea of everyone’s viewpoints.
2. Higher Engagement
One of the key ways that higher interaction benefits your presentation is in the rate of engagement .
Put simply, your audience pays much more attention when they’re directly involved in the presentation. When they can voice their own opinions, ask their own questions and see their own data manifested in charts, they connect with your presentation on a more personal level.
Including audience data in your presentation is also a sublime way to help frame facts and figures in a more meaningful way. It helps the audience to see the bigger picture and gives them something to relate to.
3. More Fun and Memorable Presentations
Fun plays a pivotal role in learning. We’ve known this for years, but it’s not so easy to implement fun into lessons and presentations.
One study found that fun in the workplace is conducive to better and more daring ideas. Countless others have found a distinctive positive link between fun lessons and students’ ability to remember facts within them.
AhaSlides’ quiz function is so perfect for this. It’s a simple tool that fosters fun and encourages competition within an audience, not to mention raising the engagement levels and providing an avenue for creativity.
Find out how to make the perfect quiz on AhaSlides with this tutorial .
4. More Design Features
There are many ways that users of AhaSlides can benefit from Google Slides’ premium features. The main one being that it’s possible to personalise your slides on Google Slides before integrating your presentation with AhaSlides.
The great depth of font, image, colour and layout options on Google Slides can help bring an AhaSlides presentation to life. These features let you build your presentation in a style that connects your audience with your topic.

How to Make Interactive Google Slides
Follow the steps below to make interactive slides.
1. Why Make Interactive Google Slides?
Before you learn how to make Google Slides interactive presentations, you should know why. The answer is simple: engagement. No audience wants to be talked at . They want to be talked with . In other words, interaction is the key to success when you present.
Interactive Google Slides also help with retention. Let’s face it: if you read a fact or statement, you’re likely to forget it. But if you interact and share in the conversation, you’re much more likely to carry the information with you.
Again, the best approach is to choose a ga-analytics#sendElementsClickEvent">premium Envato Elements template and then edit it to fit your needs. In this tutorial, we’ll use the amazing ga-analytics#sendElementsClickEvent">Wohnhaus - Clean Business Presentation from Envato Elements.
Wohnhaus includes over 30 unique slides with an array of themes. It’s a top choice for interactive Google Slides presentations, thanks to modern style. Every design element is fully customizable.
2. How to Create Drag and Drop in Google Slides
One of the most basic, yet best interactive Google Slides features is drag-and-drop. These are interactive activities where audiences can move content around your slide! To build a drag-and-drop interactive activity, let’s navigate to slide 4 in the deck.
As you can see, this has a series of icons with labels immediately below them. This is a good candidate for a drag-and-drop game because you can use it as a matching activity. In other words, users can drag the labels to match them with images!
First, you’ll want to add custom text. The text boxes you’re seeing are placeholders. Click into any of them and select the text inside. Then, type in your own words. You can repeat these steps throughout the slide deck, adding your own text.
Here, it might be a good option to give the title a description. You could name it Drag to Match , for example. Then, click once on any of the four descriptor text boxes to select it. Hovering your cursor over an edge, click and hold to drag it to the top of the slide. Repeat the same steps for the other three text boxes.
Audiences can repeat that step, moving the text down to match the images. It’s an easy and fun interactive Google Slides activity.
3. How to Add Interactive Buttons in Google Slides
Interactive buttons help your audiences work with your slide content. They can take many forms, commonly hyperlinks to send users to other websites. Let’s look at how to make an interactive Google slide button.
Buttons often take the form of a shape. These are easy to insert in Google Slides and once you do, you can convert them into links. Begin by finding a shape on a slide. In this example, let’s use the computer icon on slide 7. To start, right-click on the shape and click Ungroup.
Then, click in the circular area to select the shape. Find the Insert menu on the Google Slides menu bar. Click on it, and you’ll see an array of options appear. The one you want is near the bottom: Link . Click once, and Google Slides opens the Hyperlink menu.
Here, you can paste in a URL and click Apply . Or you can link within your slide deck by clicking the options below.
When you’re finished, your shape will link to a website or slide. Clicking on it sends users to the linked destination. This is an excellent interactive feature that you can add to Google Slides easily.
4. How to Add Amazing Interactive Animations
Interactive animations offer two key advantages.
- They help you drive engagement by having audiences click through presentations at their own pace.
- They also help you control the pace of the narrative by displaying interactive content at your own chosen speed.
Consider a slide like 9 in the deck. Each yellow bar contains a different concept that you’ll want to address in more detail in your narrative. By default, all display simultaneously. But as a practical matter, you’ll likely want to introduce these one by one.
Begin by clicking on the first text box in the uppermost yellow bar. Then, go back to the Insert dropdown and choose Animation . You’ll see an Animation sidebar open on the right side of your Google Slides screen.
In the Object Animations section, choose an effect to add to your slide. Common options include Appear, Fade In, and more.
Choose your favorite style, and then you can specify how to trigger the animation. On Click is a great choice, which is why it’s the default option. This lets you (or another user) start the animation by clicking their mouse or a handheld remote when presenting.
To preview your animation effect, click Play at the bottom of the sidebar.
From here, repeat the animation steps for the remaining objects on your slide. This is a great way to make presentations more interactive. Audiences can move through your slides at their own speed. Try it as you think of how to make an interactive Google slide design.
As you can see, premium templates from Envato Elements are the best way to build ga-analytics#sendElementsClickEvent">interactive Google Slides presentations in 2021.

How to Make Interactive Google Slides
How to create activities in Google Slides with moveable pieces (drag and drop)? I get this question a lot! Check out all the details on how to make interactive Google Slides in this post and video tutorial. In the tutorial I mention 2 modes: how to create Google Slides on desktop and on tablet.
Make sure to pin this post to your board , share or bookmark this page.
How to create Google Slides with moveable pieces on desktop
Add text boxes and use google fonts.
You can add text boxes, change the font, its size, color, background, etc. I love to use Google fonts because there are so many different fonts and I can choose readable fonts, fonts with big litters, cursive fonts, etc.
Search the web for images
You can insert images or clipart you bought on TPT or other sites. You can also use the images from the web by choosing "Search the web". Just be careful: not all images from the web can be used for commercial use but you can use them for classroom use!
What to use as background
As a background, you can either choose the color like I did for the first activity in the tutorial or you can upload another image. The main idea is for this image not to be moveable. That's why we choose to upload it as a background.
You can insert shapes and use them as moveable pieces or just for the background detail. Make sure to change the shape color and size!
I've never used lines myself. But you can definitely use them for your resources. Let me know in the comments below how you've used lines!
Teach students "undo" button
Kids often change moveable pieces or can accidentally delete something from the slide. Make sure to teach them the "undo" button.
How to add audio
You can insert audio to make your slides even better! But the audio file should be hosted somewhere (Google Drive, Dropbox, etc.). Make sure to test if the audio is working before you assign slides in Google Classroom.
How to add video
You can also insert video and this will definitely spice up your slides! Videos can be added from Youtube, your Google drive or by url.
How to create Google Slides with moveable pieces on tablet
This version is a little bit different since not all the features are present on tablets. Nevertheless, you can create activities with moveable pieces even using tablets!
- You can choose the theme provided by Google.
- You can add and change text boxes.
- You can add images from your camera or photos (kids can take photos themselves and insert in Google Slides).
- You can insert shapes, lines, and tables (this is also available on desktop).
- For moveable pieces you can insert text boxes and add emojis.

How To Create Digital Interactive Assignments with Google Slides
Pre-COVID school shutdown, I was pretty familiar with how to manipulate Google Slides to facilitate distance learning. I had even made a few digital interactive assignments in the past. But what I didn’t know was that there are a lot of teachers who struggled with this. I feel it is definitely my job to give you some direction on how to do this!
If you’re reading this and thinking, “I don’t use Google on my campus!” … I’m sorry! I’ve found Google is the most widely used platform at this point, and there are a few things I think you’ll still find valuable (there are similar features on Powerpoint).
If you want to download my sample digital activity to follow along and see some of the features, click here !
GOOGLE SLIDES VS. POWERPOINT
When you start making digital interactive assignments, this might be the first question you have. There are pros and cons to using both programs to create editable Google Slides. The bottom line comes down to this: both allow you to get to the same results, just with different steps. Google Slides is already included in your G-Suite for Education. I personally like Powerpoint because I can use fonts I downloaded onto my computer but other than that, Slides will work just fine. More on why it doesn’t necessarily matter which program you start with in a little bit. (If you don’t have Powerpoint, don’t go out and buy it – use Google Slides!)
WHAT KIND OF ASSIGNMENT SHOULD I MAKE?
Next you have to decide what you’re going to put on your slide. What is the goal of the assignment? Big question – I know. Are students using this as a worksheet or simple Q&A? Include want more spaces for writing or typing. If you’re using it as a review or instruction, you may want links to click and videos to watch. Can students drag and drop vocabulary or pictures?
STATIONARY BACKGROUND & ELEMENTS
Of course we want our students to manipulate some elements on the digital interactive assignments you’re creating. But there are certain things we may not want them to change or move. A title, the background, directions, or tables may be an example of this.
I solve this problem by creating two files of the same assignment. The first file (if you use Powerpoint, this is where can use it). I start with is what I want to be stationary and immovable by students on the activity. It will be the background to the assignment I am giving them.
Let’s say I am giving them vocabulary on landforms and they have to look up the definition, write it down, and find a picture of that type of landform in real life.
The following items should probably be stationary: a border, clipart or an image, the title, directions, and a data table for students to organize their work. You won’t want students to move, delete, or alter these pieces. Of course, some students won’t if they’re not stationary, but others definitely will.
SAVING YOUR BACKGROUND
Create the bones of the digital slide you want to give to them. If you downloaded the example I created, this is slides one and two. Anything you want students to be able to move or type into should be included on this slide.To make this a stationary background, save the slides as a JPEG image. To do this, click File > Download > JPEG (current slide). This means you’re turning the slide you just created into one flat image.
Now create your second file. If you used Powerpoint for the first part, you’re going to want to make this on Google Slides. The image you just downloaded will be the background you add to the slide. Right-click your new slide and select “format background.” Drag and drop the JPEG into the box, and that image will be the stationary background for your slide.
If you’re a Microsoft based school, you can still add a JPEG to a background in a Powerpoint file. Use the Format Background feature to add your picture, and then add features the same way I’m getting ready to talk about!
ADDING EDITABLE FEATURES
Now that you have the bones of your assignment, you can start adding your editable features. There are a few I’ll highlight. Don’t forget, you want to include the directions for whatever you want them to do on the slide in the stationary background.
In this case, we want to add text boxes for students to type in. You might think – can’t they add text boxes themselves? Yes, but it is so much easier for you to add them. Add a text box wherever you want them to write and size it to fit the dimensions of the space. Try making this box a light color to show kids they’ll type there or add an outline.
DRAG & DROP
Since drag and drop is versatile and you have a lot of options, you can do this a few ways.
Add pictures or clipart to the slide that students drag and drop to a specific spot. This is helpful for sorting or identifying objects. (If you make digital products for TPT, be sure you check the seller’s TOU before you add movable clipart to your digital interactive assignments!)
The next drag and drop feature is vocabulary words. You can just add a text box with the prewritten for students to drag and drop. There is a downside to this. They’re not as easy to move, and students can change the words by retyping in the box if they want!
To fix this, I like to type vocab words on a blank slide, take a screenshot of the word, and then add the screenshot of the text as an image. When you do this, it is no longer editable to the students.
This is something you can use to categorize, resequence, and create a scaffolded venn diagram… anything you want them to manipulate on the screen.
This student using the square shape to add layers of the Earth to a grid, creating a scale diagram.
This really depends on your lesson or assignment, but you can use shapes for a lot of things. I’m going to use my example of the square shape. I asked students to fill in a grid showing the layers of the Earth with the correct scale.
You can add shapes to the slide and ask them to copy and paste the given shape to add more. The line shape can be used for graphing.
Because there are so many possibilities for this one, I’m going to leave you with those ideas and tell you to think outside of the box!
ADDING LINKING FEATURES
Sometimes it’s just not possible to include everything you want in a Google Slide. This is where links come in. You can add two types of links: outside websites and other slides in the file.
LINKS TO OUTSIDE WEBSITES
Let’s circle back to links to outside websites. I’m going to talk specifically about a video, because there are multiple ways to do it. The second and third way work for any link, anywhere on the internet!
Add a video directly onto the Google Slide presentation. Add this on top of your background. Click Insert > Video and search on Youtube for the video you want the kids to watch. This adds a square thumbnail of the video onto your slide, so be sure you have space for it.
If you’ve seen a different colored font in a paragraph that takes you to a website, you’ve seen a hyperlink. Highlight the word you want to add the link to and click Insert > Link. Add the link you want the kids to go to in the space provided. This option works great when you’re typing onto the presentation the kids edit (and the words are not a part of the stationary background).
LINKS ON A SHAPE
Did you know you can add a link to a shape? This is best when you want to link to something, but the image or text is on the stationary background. Create a shape – use a colored outline and a transparent fill so kids can see through it. Highlight the shape, click Insert > Link and add the link to the site. Drag the shape over where you want students to click. When they do, a notification pops up under the shape with a link.
I used this assignment in the spring. The background is completely stationary, so I added a transparent shape with an outline over the words I needed to add a link to! It helped students so much!
LINKS TO OTHER SLIDES IN THE PRESENTATION
Just like you’d add a link to any website on the internet, you can add navigation to different slides in the presentation. If you have instructions on the first slide with nine slides of activities, you may want to add links to other slides to help students navigate.
Add this the same way you would using option 2 or 3 above, but when you’ll see when you click Link, click the option underneath the link box that says “slides in this presentation.” Select from any of the slides you want to link to!
Pro Tip: I always add a link to the websites kids are using in the speaker notes! But it’s one more fail-safe in case something goes wrong!
Now assign them!
Finally, you’re done creating your digital activities! Double check everything – make sure your directions are clear and your links work. Then assign your digital interactive assignments and watch your student’s progress!
Don’t forget to download your sample digital activity to follow along!

I really like this but I am wondering how did you get the original documents onto the slides? They look like TpT items and if so how were you able to take those resources and add them to slides? Did you use Kami? Thanks!
This is one of the most helpful posts I’ve found about creating interactive lessons! The tip of downloading as a jpeg is fabulous! Since reading this last week, I’ve made 3 new assignments for my students! In the past, I had taken a screen shot and used that as the background, but this way get a much crisper, in focus image. Also, I had read many things about PowerPoint, but our district doesn’t have that software. Learning that I can do all this in Google slides was eye opening! Thank you! This has really gotten my creative juices flowing!
I am so glad this helped out!!
I really enjoy this post. which is definitely help to those who are all searching asiignment tips.
