Embedding a Homework Board in Schoology

We are going to explore a few different options regarding how we might best disseminate homework within the Schoology environment. In order to ensure consistency, core content teachers will continue to update their homework boards via, a Google Doc. The Google doc is public to all (no Schoology sign - in required), but can also be embedded within a Schoology course so that everything resides in a single location. Whenever a teacher updates their Google Doc homework board, the document embedded in Schoology automatically updates to reflect those changes. Below is a screencast explaining how to: 
  • add the Google Drive App to Schoology
  • how to embed your homework board within a course
  • how to copy that homework board to other classes.
IMPORTANT: Google Drive Apps Fix
VIDEO UPDATE: Looks like you may need to authorize the Schoology Google App prior to using it (You might encounter an error 40 seconds into the video). If you get an error message when installing, you can fix it by clicking Resources > Apps > Google Drive > Authorize App. See below. Shout out to Beth Terrier for discovering this issue!
