WiscWeb - Embed a Google Slides presentation

The following document will walk a user through how to embed a Google Slides presentation within a WiscWeb webpage.

Before you begin

Use a Shared Drive for setup

We recommend that you set up your Google Slides presentation within a Shared Drive. Shared Drives accommodate many editors. Also, if the original owner leaves the University, someone can still have access.

Technical support and resources

Google Slides are covered by the UW-Madison Google Workspace team’s rules and terms of service: UW-Madison Google Workspace - Terms of Service/Use and Privacy Policy.

For help and support using these tools, we recommend the following official Google support documentation:

Step 1: Publish to web

Before you embed your Google Slides link, you will need to make sure it is set up to publish to the web. 

  1. Open the file in Google Slides

  2. At the top, click File > Publish to the web

  3. In the window that appears, keep the Link tab selected 

  4. Choose how you want your slides to advance. Select the Publish button

  5. After selecting Publish, you should see a new pop-up window with a URL of your doc. Copy that URL and save it for the next step.
