Using Github for course content

Question asked by Richard Urban on Dec 4, 2015

I'd like to put core components of my class under version control in Github.  That way I can track changes from semester to semester, "fork" a class, etc.  I did install the LTI tool, but that just creates a page for the whole repo.

 

In theory I should be able to share things from my Github repo to Canvas using iFrames,  (How do I embed a lesson inside a Canvas course? | Canvas Instructor Guide | Canvas Guides ).   But when I use an iFrame,  I just see a blank page. (using different URLs of my own,  or directly using the examples in this document, and a few from other discussions here).

 

In the Rich Content Editor, it will draw a placeholder box for the iFrame, but still can't see content.

 

I guess this is two questions.

 

1. Anyone else using Github in this way?

2. Any ideas what I'm doing wrong with iFrame?
