Embed Google Docs in ClassX Courses

Step 1: Set up your Google Docs

Before you can embed your Google Docs into WordPress, you need to make sure that it is published and visible to the public.

  • Log in to Google Docs and access the document you want to publish.
  • Go to “File”, then “Publish to the web”.

  • Google will now give you a URL for the document. Copy this URL.

Before you go any further, let’s check that your URL can be embedded on other sites:

  • Your URL should end in /pubhtml
  • Paste the URL into a different browser where you aren’t logged into Google. Can you still see the doc? If you can’t, then the Google Doc hasn’t been correctly published to the web.

Step 2. Embed Google Docs & Publish

Now you have the Google Docs URL, you can add it to you ClassX course, lesson or topic.
