Google Drive Integration

Overview

Embedding your documents on your site allows people to easily view them without having to download the files seperately as attachments. Documents you have created or uplaoded in your Google Docs can be embedded on to your ePortfolio.

Most Microsoft Office formats (Word, Powerpoint, Excel) can be uploaded to Google Docs and embedded in your ePortfolio.

Embedding Drive to your Site

To embed a document to your site, select the Insert menu and mouse over Drive.

Note: You can only embed files which you have access to. Also, if the file you have embedded is set to private, nobody else can see it except you. Make sure that the privacy settings for the document you are embedding matches the levels set for your site.
