How to Share Google Slides via QR Code

Earlier this week I published a video and blog post about how to share Google Forms through QR codes. In response to that video a follower of my Facebook page asked for some help sharing Google Slides presentations via QR code. Students were having trouble viewing the slides she had shared via QR code so she reached out to me for help. She wanted students to be able to view the slides without having to open them in their own Google accounts. This problem was quickly fixed once I learned how she had shared the slides.

The problem my reader was experiencing was due to the fact that when she created the QR code she used the link that is available through "share" button in the upper, right corner of the Slides editor. Even though the option she choose was "anyone with the link" the Slides would only open if her students signed into their Google accounts. To resolve this problem I had her use the "Publish to the Web" link that is available under the "File" drop-down menu. Take a look at the new video I made to see how this process works.
