Embedding Content into an EP Humanities lesson
As teachers, we want to present information to our students in a number of ways and use multiple platforms to engage our students. Perhaps you want to add a map, a video, or a document for students to work on collaboratively. Now you can embed other elements and programs into an EP lesson.
Examples of Content You Can Embed
There are many other programs that can be embedded directly into an EP lesson or assessment. If you can generate a ‘share’ or ‘embed’ link then you will be able to embed it into an EP lesson or assessment.
Examples of other programs and features that can be embedded into an EP lesson include – Google Docs, Google Forms, Google Maps, Google Sheets, Google Slides, Padlet, Quizlet, Desmos, World of Data, ABC, and any websites by using the URL.
How to Embed Content
In some instances you will need to click ‘share’ or ‘share to web’ to generate the embed link to embed the content into EP. In some instances you will be able to directly copy the URL, for example any website you wish to embed in an EP lesson you can directly copy the website URL and embed this. For Google Slides you would need to ‘Publish to web’ to generate the embed link and put this into EP (as a word of caution only publish to web content which you have permission to share to the web and doesn’t contain private information or data).
To embed into an EP lesson follow the steps on the video below. The video shows you some ideas of what you could embed and then how to embed these into a lesson.
