How to embed a Google Drive presentation on WordPress, Blogger, and Weebly

Google Drive is a great tool for collaboration.  Today in class students met in groups and were in charge of filling in the information on their designated slide in a presentation on Pregnancy.  The presentation used in the following video was done simultaneously during class. I used this collaborative presentation to create the following video to show how to embed Google Drive presentations in WordPress, Blogger, or Weebly.  To embed a Google Drive presentation you need to go to the presentation that you made in Google Drive, click on “file” then click on “publish to the web”, then copy the embed code.

Get to know Google Drive… create, share, publish, embed… AMAZING!!!

This video is a quick introduction to Google Drive.  I hope this video helps you learn how to use Google Drive, it is an amazing FREE tool that I know you will love!  However, you probably won’t like it the first time you use it.  I remember the first time I used it and I passed it off as just another tool I didn’t need. I now understand and greatly appreciate the amazingness of this product.

A few reasons you should use Google Drive instead of Microsoft Office or iWork:

  • You can collaborate with others!  With Google Drive you can share your document with others and each of you can work on it at the exact same time.  No more emailing documents back and forth!
  • Because each document has a unique web address you can easily share your documents with others by changing it from private to public. Once you allow others to view it you just send them the link!  You don’t have to upload it!
  • You can embed your documents into websites.  You can publish your document to the web and get an embed code to embed it anywhere.  And, every time you make a change it automatically updates wherever it has been embedded.
    • Teachers: Use Google Drive for your syllabi and/or lectures then you can embed them into your LMS.  And again, whenever you make a change it automatically changes the document you have in your LMS.

I can go on and on about its usefulness.  Give it a try, you won’t regret it!

These pictures were made completely using an iPad, LOVE IT!!! Just take screenshots by holding down the home button and sleep/wake button simultaneously. I then used Jot, a free program from the AppStore, which allows you to import photos and then draw or write on them. Super easy!
