Last March Google introduced threaded discussion comments to Google Documents. That feature is great for suggestion edits or asking questions when you’re collaborating on a document with other writers. I have used the feature for that quite a bit over the last year. Yesterday, Google announced that threaded discussion comments is an option for Google Docs Presentations.
Using the discussions option, collaborators can comment on a part of a slide or an entire slide. Discussions will allow collaborators to have threaded conversations in the margins of a presentation. By including the @ symbol before a collaborator’s name you can reply directly to that person. Discussion comments can be tied to a specific part of a slide. Discussion comments can be removed when the suggested edit has been completed. Learn more in the video below.
Discussions in Google Docs Presentations could be a great tool to use when editing students’ presentations. You can tie comments directly to a part of a slide to suggest to students that they change color schemes, font size, or resizing an image.
