How to embed different sites and files in a formative!

Hi everyone :wave:

I’ve created a folder showing how to embed your favorite sites into a formative, with step by step instructions for each site (with gifs and screenshots), and examples. I hope this is useful! Embedding is one of my favorite features of Formative :star_struck:

Sites include:

Buncee
Coggle
Desmos (calculators and activities)
Edpuzzle
Explain Everything
Flipgrid
Geogebra
Google Docs
Google Slides
Google Drive files (Sheets, Forms, audio, video etc)
Nearpod
NewsELA
PHET
Padlet
Quizlet
Sutori
Wakelet

Clone code: https://goformative.com/clone/DERXQE

You can also search “embedding” in the LIbrary to find it. The bundle listing will be updated regularly!

I’d love to know how you use embedding in your formatives! :grinning:

Rebecca,

              Thank you for the extensive list. Just wanted to remind everyone the greatest issue when embedding was not having an embed code. When this occurs use any iframe generator.

I teach economics, so often need to embed graphs showing data. Two sites I like are:

  • https://ourworldindata.org/ which has interactive graphs using global data on a variety of topics. All the interactive graphs are embeddable; the height and width of the graphs needs to be adjusted to show properly.
  • https://www.gapminder.org/tools/ which allows the user to create their own graphs (several different types) using global data. The graphs are, again, interactive and embeddable with adjustments to the height and width.

Thanks for the tip @gerda.kits !!

Can anyone help with embedding Adobe or Microsoft files into Formatives? I added Microsoft Sway to the Library bundle yesterday, but would love to add more! :slightly_smiling_face:
