embedding Google Sheets into Bb

 I use Google Slides quite often. I also share these slides with students. I embed the slides into Bb using iframe codes. It turns out that embedding Google Slides isn't as straightforward as one would think. 

Step 1: Make your slides public by changing the permissions.

Step 2: In the presentation's URL, replace the highlighted section with "preview".

  • https://docs.google.com/presentation/d/1XO1C6ygsiRUhjj5ahhhajZQaALiqQNAQPf2IRzPG874/preview with some numbers after it

    Step 3: Copy the new URL.
    Step 4: In order to use the iframe code, you will need to use the HTML editor in Blackboard. Click the HTML button to pull up the html editor:
    Step 5: Copy the iFrame code below and paste it into the html editor in Bb. Don't forget to paste your own preview URL into the highlighted section!

    <p>
    <iframe width="476" height="338" src="enter Preview URL between quotes">
    </iframe>
    </p>
    

    Notice that I specified the size of the iFrame; I find that this width and height are perfect for slides set at 16:10 ratio.
