2. Within Google Slides, click “File” and then “Publish to the Web.” Click the “Embed” tab and copy the html embed code. Click “Publish” when you’re done.

3. Open up your Moodle course site and find the place where you’d like to embed your slides. Select “Add an activity or resource.” Select “Page.”

4. After filling in the “Name” and “Description” fields, scroll down to “Page Content.” Select the “show/hide advanced button” and then the “html” button. Some sample html will appear which you can delete. Paste your Google Slides html into this box.
