Changing Layout of Slides

Whenever you create a new Google Slide presentation, the presentation is defaulted to a slide layout of widescreen 16:9 ratio. You do not have to keep this layout. In fact, you can customize your size dimensions to basically whatever you want it to be. For example, we know that the following two have these specific examples:

  • Legal size paper – 8.5 inch by 11 inches
  • Instagram stories – 1080 pixels by 1920 pixels

To make the change, select page setup under the file menu. Then determine the dimensions that you want to use under custom.

Timelines and Charts

I must say that this is a feature that I really have not spent much time on. Timelines in Google Slides can be a good solution to having a collaborative timeline project for students to complete. Once you pick a timeline of your choice, you can then alter the template by adding in your own text, images, or YouTube videos. Timelines can be found under diagrams in the insert menu.
