How to Embed Editable Google Document in your UVLe Course

Embed Editable Google Document in your UVLe course


Once you have created a document on your Google Drive account, you can embed it in your UVLe course. The document can be viewed or edited by your students depending on the permission you've set for it. Here is a sample embedded Google document.

Preparing your Google Document


1. First you need a document (spreadsheet, word, drawing, form) on your Google Drive account. You can either create or upload an existing file.

2. In your document, make sure your settings allow people to edit without requiring them to login. Forcing students to log in with their Google account will not be able to edit the document directly on your course page.

3. Change the share settings on your document by clicking the SHARE button on the upper right-hand corner of the page.

4. Check the permission of the document. The default status for a Google Document is private. Click on the change link. (shown in A)

5. Set the Visibility options of the document by choosing Anyone with the link option, then allow anyone to edit the file. (shown in B)

6. Click Save once you're finished.

7. Copy the link (shown in A) and paste it in your notepad or any text editor.

Embed Code


You need to create the correct code to embed it in your UVLe course page. Don't forget to add /edit on your link.

Embedding the Document in your UVLe course
