The Maestro Recommends/ Put a piece of edshelf on your site

January 20, 2013
Great new feature from Edshelf. Read below to discover more!

“Now you can embed any collection from edshelf onto your blog or website with our new Collection Widget! With this, you can:

  • Maintain a list of recommended tools for your school
  • Write a blog post of your Top 10 tools
  • Share a set of tools with your students
  • and more!

TeacherCast has a great example on their site:

Here’s how you can put a piece of edshelf on your site too:

  1. Go to any collection on edshelf, such as Melvina Kurashige’s Language learning tools.
  2. Scroll down to look for the “Widget” module in the right column, as you can see here:

  1. Copy the embed code. In our example, this code will look like:

<div id="edshelf-widget"></div><script src="//edshelf.com/widgets/collection?id=5495&height=500"></script>

  1. Paste this code into your blog or website, much like you would a YouTube video or Storify widget. Please note that like the Storify widget, our Collection widget is a full-sized widget. This means it is best as a blog post, as opposed to a sidebar widget.
  2. And that’s it!

Note: If your widget appears with a scrollbar, you can fix that by increasing the height of the widget. Return to the collection and look for the “Height” field in the Widget module. You’ll see a number in that field already: 500. Change that number to whatever you would like. It can go up to the thousands if necessary, since some collections are very large.

We hope you like it! Please let us know what you think. As always, we love hearing your suggestions. Thanks!
 
P. S. If you use WordPress, we also have a WordPress plugin that may make this process easier. We haven’t submitted this plugin to the WordPress Plugin Directory yet, but reply to this message and I will send you a copy of it.”
