OTT-o-matic Slip-in-Slide

Slip-in-Slide is my solution to the dilemma to share new content with teachers for daily, interactive, or project based Google Classroom assignments (really it can be any folder of Google Slides or just a one file) . The idea is that a teacher can have a slide deck of prepared materials (and they don’t have to have it all done before they give the assignment) and slip those materials in one slide or many slides at a time into every student presentation. Thats is, easy right. Well after 6 months of off and on coding (mostly off) I have wrapped up this add-on. So let’s see how it works!

INSTRUCTIONS

Once you install and Start “Slip-in-Slide” add-on you will complete step 1 and 2:

1) Select “Select Destination in Google Drive” from the add-ons menu (Note: The destination location will be stored for this file only. You do not have to select the folder each time, unless you are changing the destination. I would suggest to keep slipping from this slide deck to the same folder of student presentations).

2) Once the folder/file is selected the second with state “Slip slides to [enter folder name] folder” or “Slip slides to [enter file name] file”. This will allow you to know where you are going to slip the files. Once you have choose this step from the drop down, you will be sent to an Options menu where you will choose which slides to slip, and whether you want them placed at the back of front of the students presentation. A conformation will be received listing all of the files that have received the slip.

Thats is it. I have a few features I want to add to more easily pull the folder IDs from Google Classroom, but that will have to wait until I have a little time to finalize that piece of script.

Have a great time using Slip-in-Slide!
