Embedding a Google Doc into a Lesson


You can embed a Google Doc into a Skilljar lesson. This article will walk you through uploading that content.

  1. Copy the Google Doc link:
    • Click File, then select "Publish to the web" first_step.jpg
    • Select the Link tab. Before publishing, decide if you want to require users to be signed in to view the document. Click Publish.second_step.jpg
    • You will now have a link to embed into Skilljar.
    • Note: to correctly embed a Google doc, use this Published Link method. Copying the browser URL or using the default Share button will result in an error. last_step.jpg
