Did you know you can hack Google Slides to make animations?

Watch this video from Sam Patterson to learn how.

Click HERE to watch Sam’s video.  (It’s awesome!)

When you go to publish your animation, it will look a little different. You no longer need to set the size.  Here are the settings you will want to use.


When you play with timings, you might be able to get away using fewer Google slide frames by using a longer time.

FOR EXAMPLE:  

Original

12 frames per second

5 frames per second (a little jerkier, but you need half as many slides)

How do you turn it in?

DO NOT SHARE your slide presentation with your teacher.

INSTEAD - Once you have modified your link, copy it, and paste it in an e-mail to your teacher.  This way the animation will play when your teacher clicks on the link.
