I originally posted this article on September 8, 2015. I think it's a great tip so I thought I would post it again in case anyone missed it.
Did you know you could convert any Google Doc to a Webpage in just a few clicks? Yes you can!
Here are the steps to make it happen -
1. Open the Google Doc.
2. Click File > Publish to the Web.
3. Click Publish.
4. A link is created that you can copy and paste anywhere - your website, blog, wiki, etc. OR post it to Google+, Facebook or Twitter.
5. Make sure to select Published Content and Setting > Automatically republish when changes are made. If you update the Google Doc, your webpage is automatically updated!
6. If you ever need to unpublish the webpage, just open the doc, click File > Publish to the Web and then click Unpublish - it's that simple!
This would be a great way to publish an online newsletter for parents every month, make announcements to staff members or students, provide a quick list of website resources, post lesson plans, have students post writing assignments, etc.
How would you use this in your classroom?
