EdX Instructors Can Now Add Google Docs, Images, Forms, Slides, Sheets and Calendars To Their Courseware

Instructors can now embed Google Drive files and Calendars into courseware on edX and Open edX. This improvement was added to the Open edX platform on the March 5 release.

The Google Drive files – Docs, Drawings, Forms or Surveys, Slides, Sheets – and Calendars appear in the body of the course just like any other content.



An additional possibility for the students is to add the Google Course Calendar to their own personal calendars. The course information will appear along with the students’ information.
