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.
