How do I add a powerpoint presentation using Google slides into my assignment in Canvas? I can upload it but it won't appear in my assignment.
Google Slides aren't "files" like a PowerPoint. They exist online, so you don't actually upload anything in that sense.
There are a couple ways to attach a Slides presentation to an Assignment:
1. If you have the Google Drive app installed in Canvas, you can access your Drive right from the content editor. Click on the Google Drive icon and it'll allow you to select a presentation. I typically embed the slides because it gives only the slideshow instead of the full editor.
2. Embed the slideshow. If you don't have the Drive icon in the editor, you can still embed the slides. In the Google slideshow, go to File > Publish to the web. Click on Publish and then copy the embed code given.
In Canvas, click on Insert/Embed media and paste that code in. The slideshow will embed right into the page for students to use.
3. If all else fails, make your slideshow viewable with a link in the Share menu and paste the link into the assignment. When students click the link, they'll be taken to the slides.
