Google Books–so much more embeddable!

Live from the Google Teacher Academy in Washington, otherwise known as #gtadc.  I hope to be sharing much more, but here is just one exciting early discovery.   Google Books are now much easier to embed.   This should make it lots easier to do our own Classic of the Week!  The image below shares the little link button on the top right of each individual book’s page.

  1. Joyce, funny you would blog this. In my JavaScript class this morning, we took a look at how to use JavaScript to do this. I think the class enjoyed using it and thought of lots of applications.

    Hi Joyce!

    I’ve been embedding the Google Books this semester into my pathfinders at LibGuides, and the students LOVE them! I can add some examples to the effective practice wiki if you’d like!

  3. joycevalenza says:

    Yes, Buffy!

  4. I think this is a great feature. The trouble comes when students rarely use (or can find) the school website/teacher pages, library website/wiki page, and so many don’t have computer access at home.

  5. Just as a point of clarification, not every Google Book has the “link” feature. LIFE magazines, for example, don’t let you embed.
