Embedding a document to use as a discussion board- it works and is really cool :)

I just figured out something really cool to do with Formative. If you embed a document (Google doc, Slides, Spreadsheet, Draw) using the iFrame Generator, and set its permissions to edit, you can effectively embed a “discussion board” into a Formative. Here’s how

What I forgot to add in the video is that to close the board you go back and change the settings of the document back to anyone with the link can view.


That is awesome! Good thinking!

Thanks @mgarcia this a great tool for remote learning. I think it could be even used as a Q&A board for the assignment the Ss are completing. Very cool

Super cool! I’m so grateful for all of those that share their ideas!

This is great. Thanks so much for sharing!

Wow! What a great tool. My only question would be where can you get the iframe?
This would definite save tons of time.

There are several. I usually just Google iframe embed generator.
