Google Docs was designed by Google for presenting and designing, so using it to read with structal takes a couple extra steps.
To use structal with a Google Slides presentation, you can use the "HTML Present" mode. You do this the following way:
- On your Google Slides presentation, use the keyboard shortcut Ctrl + Alt + Shift + p (Windows or Chrome OS) or ⌘ + Option + Shift + p (Mac). This will open your presentation in HTML Present mode and allow your students to use structal on your presentation.
Once you enter HTML Present mode, you can share this "HTML Present" link that's in the address bar directly with your students. It should end with "/htmlpresent". This will open the Google Slides presentation for them in HTML Present mode automatically.
Note: Students can also follow this process themselves to use structal with any Google Slides presentation. Teachers have reported that this process is very straightforward for students to follow. The structal Chrome Extension also gives them a reminder of how to do it if they try to use structal on Google Slides (see yellow banner below).
