The objective of this tutorial are:

Google Drive is a powerful tool for collaboration and productivity in the cloud.
When using Google Drive you can also generate a public url by publishing your work. This will allow you to link to and embed your presentation or other work in a post or website. You can set it to update whenever you make changes to the original document, spreadsheet,form or in this case presentation. You can change these permissions at any time.
In what situations might you want to share your work in this way?
Should you have the agreement of all collaborators first?
