Use Control C to copy the link.

Control T to open a new tab.

The slideshow will NOT reflect edits unless you refresh. NO need to republish to the web. Refreshing the rotating slideshow will show the new edits. If you have the slideshow embeded into a webpage (see below), any edits will be visible when the webpage is refreshed.


Import Slides

An easy way to share student work is to import slides from student slides. When students submit work to Google Classroom you have the work nicely organized in your Google Drive. Create a blank Google Slides presentation and use the Insert menu to “Import slides.” Select from slides from student work to easily create a presentation with student samples.
