Embedding Google Docs in Schoology “Pages”

Pages are a nice Materials option in Schoology.  They give a teacher the ability to include more flexible learning content and are awesome in blended courses.

Sometimes you may want to add an already created Google Doc (or slides, sheet, etc.) along with some text content in a page.  Below is how you can do that (note that if you want just the doc without other content before or after it, you’d follow a different process).  First is an animated GIF, followed by the step-by-step instructions.
