This requires a little tiny bit of HTML, but don’t be discouraged–it is basically just two copy-and-paste jobs!

Copy this bit of code (all the bold text below)

<p><iframe src=”YOUR GOOGLE DOC ‘S URL WILL GO HERE” frameborder=”0″ height=”400″ width=”100%”></iframe></p>

Paste it into your Moodle box as HTML code.  That means you must first click the icon that looks like this <>    then paste the above text.

This is an embedded Google Doc!  If I need to make an adjustment to the unit plan, I simply make the adjustment in the Google doc and the changes are reflected in the Moodle!

Then, take the Google Doc that you want to embed and go to “File–>Publish to the web”.

Click “embed” and then “publish”. It will ask you if you’re sure–go ahead and confirm.

You can ignore the big of HTML code that it gives you, because the code shown above is better.   Close the embedding window.

Now click “Share”.  Change the sharing permissions to allow “Anyone with the link” (or something similar, depending on how restrictive you want viewing to be).

 

Once you have done that, copy the URL of the Google Doc.

Go back to the Moodle HTML code and highlight the section of code that says, “YOUR GOOGLE DOC’S URL WILL GO HERE”, and replace that section with the actual URL of your Google doc.  Yes–the quotation marks are necessary.

That’s it!  Save the changes and it should immediately show up.

Note:  If you make changes in the Google doc, the changes will not show up in Moodle until you reload the Moodle.
