Embedding Instructional Material Hosted Elsewhere
I’m interested in the instructional material in data curation hosted by ESIP Federation online at <http://wiki.esipfed.org/index.php/Data_Management_Course_Outline>.
I searched Google for “Online Powerpoint Viewer” and located this: <https://docs.google.com/viewer>.
I think it could be useful for enabling embedded instructional material without using a service like SlideShare, a service that requires one own the material uploaded.
Take the first URL from the ESIP Federation: http://wiki.esipfed.org/images/6/6d/AgencyRequirementsV2.ppt
Add the URL to Google’s little viewer and you get two pieces of code to choose from:
Link to viewer:
[<a href="http://docs.google.com/viewer?url=http%3A%2F%2Fwiki.esipfed.org%2Fimages%2F6%2F6d%2FAgencyRequirementsV2.ppt">Agency requirements </a>]
Embedded on Web site:
googleapps domain="docs" dir="viewer" query="url=http%3A%2F%2Fwiki.esipfed.org%2Fimages%2F6%2F6d%2FAgencyRequirementsV2.ppt&embedded=true" width="600" height="780" /
Now I will try the “Embedded on a Web site” code above in the space immediately below the horizontal rule:
This Drupal module <https://www.drupal.org/project/groupdocs_viewer> is something I’d like to try for a Drupal Website; I have a “sandbox” drupal site to play with at datapro.drupalgardens.com. At some point I will explore how to accomplish embedding powerpoint documents in a Drupal Website or perhaps a wiki, such as my OpenWetWare research notebook for technical documentation of Maxent at <http://openwetware.org/wiki/GSMNP:Notebook/MaxEnt>. If it’s possible to embed a powerpoint presentation on a wiki that is hosted by the same wiki, that could be useful for my IS 599 Practicum Experience work.
