Embedded Folder (List View)Embedded Folder (Grid View)


My district has heavy Google Drive users.  Using the publish to the web feature of Docs and Slides has really helped promote the use of Canvas.  However, Google doesn't give that option for folders.  Many teachers and admins have asked for this and after some digging, I discovered that there is an embed code you can create.

From this info, I've been able to embed Google Drive folders into any page like you see above.


In order to make this easier for teachers, I took the code and created tool that lets instructors copy their shared folder URL and convert it to the embed code.


You can see the embed folder tool here.

Infographics 101

Posted by Lea Engle Mar 2, 2016

I spent my morning learning about infographics from the person behind Cool Infographics, a site that shares infographics the site creator finds interesting or useful. I am new to the world of infographic creation, but have been experimenting with them for our internal monthly reports on Canvas Training and Outreach. Today's workshop covered best practices, tools (free and paid), and tons of examples of the good, the bad, and the ugly.


Some of these will embed well into Canvas, and unfortunately some won't. We love ThingLink here but haven't had good luck with it working well with Canvas. Fortunately there are a *ton* of resources on this list. Definitely check them out.
