Convert a PowerPoint to a Google Slide



In an earlier post this year I showed how to easily convert a Word Doc to a Google Doc - click here for post.

Numerous people have asked me about converting PowerPoints to Google Slides. There are two ways this can be done.

The first way is very simple - the second way (seen below) is a bit more time consuming - but can be done.

1. Log on to Google Drive
2. Select New
3. File Upload
4. Select the PowerPoint ot PowerPoints you would like to upload
5. Select Open
6. Google will automatically change it to a Google Slide
7. Be sure to check how the PowerPoint transferred and make sure it is to your liking.



You will see two GIFS and two 20 second embedded YouTube videos below (videos are the same as the GIFS but with audio). Below that are a few directions as well.
