Using Google Docs to create a live interactive Venn Diagram for Moodle

February 10, 2012 at 6:35 pm 4 comments

Hi all,

I used this trick in a workshop I facilitated last week. Rather than using chart paper to collect ideas as a Venn Diagram I created a live Venn Diagram using Google Docs and linked to it via our moodle page. Here are the basic steps I used, but the screencast below takes you through the whole process:

  1. Create a GMail account and use it to sign in to Google Docs 
    • Create a New Drawing in Google Docs
    • Draw 2 circles overlapping and use the paint function to make them partially transparent.
    • Use the text tool to label the circles
  2. Click share and change the privacy settings to “Anyone with the link”
  3. Copy the URL provided to your clipboard
  4. Turn editing on in your Moodle classroom and select Add a resource -> URL
  5. Give the link a description and paste in the URL you copied in step 3.

Here’s the whole process as a screencast. Enjoy. 🙂

Cheers,

Doug

    You can also have the students complete this diagram in groups or individually if they use the “make a copy feature” under the file tab in GDocs.
