1. If you want more page real estate for your Google Doc, you can add the following to your <iframe> embed code:

width="900" height="1100" frameborder="2"

The width and height numbers can be adjusted to your needs.  The full modified code is below (with the added size-related bit bolded):

2. If you have images or other bits embedded in your Google Doc, the “Publish to web” version of your Google doc isn’t going to look great.  And so you need to make a minor edit to the tail-end of your code.

Change the bolded red..

.. to the bolded black.

And if you want to combine this with the code that allows for more screen real estate to result in a more viewable and editable Google Doc in Moodle:

3. Finally, you can have your Google Doc load to a bookmarked page.  For example, you might want the course schedule on syllabus pp.10-11 to load into a Moodle section.

  1. In your Google Doc, place your cursor where you want to set a bookmark.  Then select “Insert” in the app menu, followed by “Bookmark”.  Voila, a bookmark is set.

  1. Click on the bookmark, and then select “Link”.  In the URL bar of your browser, copy only the latter portion of the URL, beginning with the #.  The “#heading” info is the part of the link pertaining to your bookmark.  For example, below, I copied the bolded portion:


  1. On the Moodle side, add the “#heading” code to your <iframe> embed code.  Your final modified code might look something like this (all mods bolded):
