Embedding Google Docs - Perins Mahara

Embedding Google Docs - Perins Mahara | Moodle and Mahara | Scoop.it

Mahara page comparing GoogleDocs added via GoogleDocs plugin and those added via an allowed iframe source using v1.6

 

Google presentations have come on quite a bit since I last looked at them.

 

I like how they play in a Mahara page and still give you some functionality and features that are not available via a simple slideshare option.

 

In fact Google Drive seems far more impressive than when I last looked at it. The Publish to Web options is a nice addition which I had to be told about to get these pages embedded (Thanks Anita and Dirk) :O)

gideonwilliams's insight:

What I have not added is the frustration felt when Google changes/updates its features and the existing links/methods of embedding all change. It is good that Mahara gives you a number of ways of presenting the work although the iframe embed route is one that requires some training and is not the preferred way I would like explain to students.

 

Many schools of course use Google as their eportfolio package with students creating web pages using Google Sites. Haven't visited sites for a while and was a little put off that the ability of students to add in a number of "science education" apps that focused more on the biological side of things! (some 3-4yrs ago)

 

With the explosion of app development it is good to see more options and relevant features in the forefront although I have not searched to far off the beaten track...

 

Why is Sites not on the navigation menu any more for Drive - disappointing.
