5 mins read

BrainCert provides users with the option to create IFrame content, which offers enhanced flexibility and customization in embedding various types of content within their courses and learning environments.

IFrame is an HTML element used to embed another document within the current HTML document. This feature allows users to display external content, such as web pages, videos, interactive elements, and applications, seamlessly within their BrainCert platform.

Purpose of Google Slides

  • Embedding Google Slides allows users to seamlessly integrate presentations created in Google Slides directly into the LMS platforms.
  • This feature enables viewers to access and interact with the slides without leaving the webpage, enhancing the overall user experience.
  • Embedding Google Slides also facilitates real-time updates, ensuring that any changes made to the original presentation are automatically reflected in the embedded version.

Embed as a slideshow only:

  • "Embed as a slideshow only" refers to the option of embedding a presentation or document solely as a slideshow, without additional interactive elements or features.

Steps to Embed Google Slides

Step 1:

Open Your Google Slides presentation and click on the 'File' option from the menu.


Step 2:

Click on the 'Share' option and select 'Publish to web'.

Step 3:

Click on the 'Embed' tab from the 'Publish to the web' page.

Choose your desired settings for how the slideshow will play.

You can set it to start the slideshow as soon as the player loads and/or to restart the slideshow after the last slide.


Step 4:

Next, click the 'Publish' button to get the embed URL.

Step 5:

Now, confirm by clicking 'OK' in the dialog that appears.

Step 6:

After clicking 'Publish', you'll see an HTML embed code.

Embed as Slideshow Only​

To ensure it's displayed as a slideshow only without the Google Slides interface, ensure the embed link you copied contains '/embed' in the path.

The URL in the embed code should look something like this:[YourPresentationID]/embed.


Step 7:

Navigate to the LMS and open 'Content' under 'Products'. Go to 'IFrame Content' and click '+Add iFrame'.

Step 8:

Paste the embed code in the 'IFrame URL' space. Set the 'IFrame Height' and give a 'Title' for the URL.


Step 9:

Now, the created file will be seen under the title. 


Step 10:

For learners, it will appear as a slideshow only, without the Google Slides editor interface.


By adhering to these steps, you can effectively embed your Google Slides presentation into your LMS, transforming it into a seamless and user-friendly slideshow experience. Now learners can focus solely on the engaging and informative slides that are crafted, enhancing their overall experience and maximizing the impact of your presentation.
