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 courses
IMPORTANT: Google Drive Apps Fix
VIDEO UPDATE: Looks like you may need to authorize the Schoology Google App prior to using it. If you get an error message when installing, click Resources > Apps > Google Drive > Authorize App. See below. Shout out to Beth Terrier for discovering this issue!
