How to Add Videos to Google Slides Without Using YouTube

This morning I received an email from a reader who wanted to know if it was possible for his students to add their personal videos to Google Slides presentations without having to use YouTube. His plan is for students to collaborate to create a Google Slides presentation about a 4-H event and he wants students to include some personal video clips from it. But while his school allows the use of YouTube, he’d prefer to avoid having to make students use it. My suggestion was to have students save their videos in their Google Drive and then insert them directly into their slides. That’s what I demonstrate in the following video that I recorded this morning.

If you have questions about Google Slides or other G Suite products, please feel free to send me a note. And if you’re new to using G Suite, consider joining my Practical Ed Tech course Getting Going With G Suite.
