Embedding a Google Form In CANVAS LMS

One of my favorite things to do in CANVAS LMS is to embed a Google Form onto a Page.  I use Google Forms in almost every module I create.  This allows me to check-in with students, survey students, create a weekly reflection, check for understanding as an exit ticket or just a nice way to collect and track student information and data.  Embedding content onto Canvas Pages allows students to easily access and view assignments and resources.  The embedded Google Form will show up on the Canvas Page and allows students to immediately engage with the content. 

What are “Embed” codes?

Embedding refers to the integration of links, images, videos, gifs and other content into social media posts or other web media, such as Canvas LMS. Embedded content appears as part of a post and supplies a visual element that encourages increased click through and engagement.  When you embed the code you will need to go from the “rich text editor” to “html”. Sometimes you will see the word HTML and sometimes you might see the “embed icon”

 “Building a Canvas LMS Course is similar to building a website”.

  • Create A Google Form

  • Get the embed code from the Google Form by clicking on SEND
