If you use Google Slides with students and/or staff, keeping your presentation on track is key. Timers can be beneficial for pacing to keep the flow of the presentation consistent. An easy solution for "embedding" a timer would be to insert a YouTube timer. Here's how:

Step 1

Search YouTube

Perform a Google Search for a timer that fits the time period desired. For example, I searched for a two minute timer.

Step 2

Copy Link

Copy the URL of the YouTube timer you wish to use. Note: If unsure where that URL is located, copy the web address at the top of the browser.
